BOOK Frederic Mompou, the Eternal Restart
Prologue by Arcadi Volodos
“It appears that music, more than being composed, has been carved in eternity…”
38 musical examples, 60 illustrations and unpublished documents in 230 pages
Frederic Mompou, l'etern recomençar analyses the aesthetic principle of restarting as it appears in Mompou’s music and personality.
Frederic Mompou, el eterno recomenzar (“Frederic Mompou, the Eternal Restart”) will certainly become –with the already essential biographic and aesthetic essays by Clara Janés, Vladimir Jankélévitch and Émile Vuillermoz– one of the key monographs on the art of this universal musician.

"Pla’s performance consistently communicates the depth of Mompou’s ideas. (...) He captures all the subtle shadings of the music; exploring a wide range of colors, (...) and the music is deeply rewarding"
VIGIL / American Record Guide. July-August 2013
"Adolf Pla has gorgeous tone and a perfectly expressive rubato (...). Sound is exquisite"

"It is fresh and measured, and it aims to a more clear and simple exposition and not a presumably dense one. This is why his Música callada (“Silent Music”) is a delight of reminiscences and nostalgia"
Albert Ferrer / Catclàssics. May 2013
His goddaughter Elisenda Janés, to whom he dedicated Berceuse (“Lullaby”).
