Federico Mompou: Prelude No. 5 By Guillaume Coppola
A delicate and ethereal work
Influenced by the sensorial experiences of his hometown of Barcelona, Mompou’s oeuvre frequently references the sights, sounds and smells of the coastal city. The beauty of this work is in the wonderful seventh and sixth chords which create an ethereal mood. After this a delicate melody is introduced. It sits above the chords perfectly and gives a little articulation to the work overall.
