Happy Birthday, Xavier Montsalvatge

March 11, 2012

Montsalvatge was born one hundred years ago today. In celebration, they are broadcasting this extraordinarily fine documentary from Barcelona, in which I participate. If you know little about his life and music, this is a fine introduction.

UPDATE: Thanks to Alex Ross for his own marking of the centenary with the apt description of Montsalvatge as “subtly potent.”
