About

Acknowledged as one of the finest contemporary composers, Barcelona-born Leonardo Balada (b. 1933) has written a series of Caprichos, suite-like pieces that illustrate the range of his invention. Fusing traditional and contemporary elements, they generate a symbiosis between the ethnic and the avant-garde, as in Caprichos no.7: Fantasies of ‘La Tarara’ in which an Andalusian folk melody is transformed into a surrealist canvas, and in the vividly descriptive dissonance of Caprichos no.6. Ballet City is a youthful work, reflecting Balada’s early enthusiasm for neo-classicism.
