‘I have a pain in my heart, of which I can never tell.’ Mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz and pianist Joseph Middleton lose themselves in the dark, tender world of Spanish romantic song.
The songs of Spain don’t always sound the way you expect. Yes, there’s passion, and the special strain of emotion that emerges from a landscape and culture unique in Europe. But there’s also delicacy, joy and dazzling sophistication: as a generation of Spanish composers – de Falla, Granados and Turina – took their cues from the music of France, and emerged sounding more Spanish than ever.
For Clara Mouriz, bringing the lesser-known jewels of Spanish song to a wider audience is a personal mission – one that’s she’s accomplished with unsurpassed sensitivity and flair since she was selected as a BBC New Generation Artist, over a decade ago. Together with regular recital-partner Joseph Middleton, this Spanish-born mezzo-soprano has emerged as one of the foremost living champions of this ravishing but elusive repertoire.
Recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3
