I once again had the opportunity to play at La Encarcación in Los Alcázares.
Juan Julián made this beautiful video. He also described the magical atmosphere in the language of Cervantes like no one else can.
I have the honour to be a member of the Ferenc Liszt Society in Budapest!
Liszt’s spirit flows through the entire museum and its instruments. Especially the Chickering grand of 1879! The silver stand is a gift from Liszt’s pupils.
Liszt’s generosity is an example followed by few maestri like Cyprien Katsaris and Martha Argerich.

One of the most refreshing pieces of music by Franz Liszt.

Radio premiere of David Cools’ recording of José Pagán’s Waltz on the Spanish National Radio.
On 22.01.2016, the Spanish national classical radio station broadcast a program about the music of my great-uncle, José Pagán López, tireless composer especially celebrated for his Habaneras.
Juan Antonio, his son, presented my recording of Pepe’s Waltz (José is Pepe in Spanish). I played and recorded the piece in 2009, in the d’Ursel Castle, on a Steinway B.
This Waltz was composed around 1951 and was a harmony study embodied in a Chopin-style nocturne.
Start listening at 10′.
See the live performance of Pepe’s Waltz during the 2013 Quito recital:
