Federico Mompou

Born: 1893

Died: 1987

Nationality: Spanish

Publisher: UME

Although Mompou studied piano and harmony in Barcelona and Paris, he had no formal training in composition. Many of his works are based on traditional Catalan melodies, though the refined fluency of melody and harmony - together with the occasional influence of jazz - betray his love of French composers such as Fauré, Ravel and Satie. Mompou wrote almost exclusively for solo piano, sometimes with the addition of solo voice, and this preference for small and intimate genres forms reflected his own private nature.
