The most distinguished pianist of his generation, a brilliant pedagogue and a highly gifted composer, Jose Viana da Mota was a towering personality in the field of Portuguese music. Compositional studies in Berlin were in the German Classical-Romantic tradition but, with an infusion of folk-based material from his homeland, he soon became the leading figure in the emerging Portuguese Nationalist School. This new release, which includes multiple world premiere recordings, comes from Portuguese pianist Joao Costa Ferreira. Ferreira is an AvA Musical Editions artist and has been collaborating with this Portuguese publisher on the publication of Jose Viana da Motas piano works.
