Antonio Ruiz-Pipó was a versatile musician whose compositions display both Andalusian and Parisian influences as well as reflecting his own life story of non-conformism coupled with an infinite love for humanity. This programme reveals his inclination towards South American music, and in the duets Homenaje a Villa-Lobos and the quartet Américas he looks towards the habanera and samba (as well as a little boogie-woogie). Ancient sounds from a faraway land echo in the Homenaje a Antonio de Cabezón, while Cuatro para Cuatro and A Sevilla are pure Andalusian Ruiz-Pipó in terms of their colours, rhythms and narrative.

This highly collectable edition has been welcomed for its imaginative programming of chamber music with guitar alongside solo works. Volume 1 (8573971) is played ‘with authority’ (Fanfare), reminding us of guitarist Wolfgang Weigl’s close association with the composer in his last years, and the solo works in Volume 2 (8574167) admired in MusicWeb International as ‘striking’ and ‘richly expressive’.
