Elgar's two symphonies are good example of interpretations of music being stuck thanks to the strange British conservatism. If you listen to 10 recordings of these symphonies by 10 British conductors, they all sound more or less same in terms of interpretation: controlled, noble, beautiful Elgarian rubato and so on.
It was more than a pleasure when Rodrigo Ottaviano an old-new friend and manager of Daniel Melero confirmed to me that Daniel wanted to work with me the art of this record! Piano (1999) was a classic record that I listened to thousands of times, I keep listening … I hope volume 2 also becomes such. It was during a trip to Olot, in Catalonia that I thought to use the volcano on the album cover, and in Mexico came the idea of the nonexistent piano, the piano that in fact Daniel does not play on the disc. Talking with Daniel is always a pleasure, it seems that you can tackle any topic with him, and that's what we talked about during the making of the album art, any subject … of volcanoes, arrangements, things that do not need to be fixed, books , Of my books, told me that during the recording of his last albums my books had been there very present, as anticipating this collaboration. The day that Piano 2 appeared in Buenos Aires, the ashes cloud of the Chilean volcano Calbuco that had erupted a few days before, arrived at Buenos Aires. The coincidences do exist, of course.
