Spain: sounds & scents, from the Piano, Music & Song Trio

We arrived at the Rockwood Music Hall to see someone else. But when we entered the small, dimly lit room, we fell immediately in love with the current set.

A man with a trumpet-like instrument, called a flugel horn. A woman with a cello. Another woman behind a bulky grand piano. Rather than fighting for the tiny stage, they harmoniously poured out something that touched our souls, though we didn't know just what.

"Ah," the trumpeter said, finishing their last musical phrase. "If that doesn't make you want to go to the bar and get a glass of red wine, I don't know what."

Delicate. Intimate. Perfectly complemented by the wax dripping down the brick walls.

Hear for yourself. Frederic Mompou (1893-1987), Musica Callada, II:
