Quote from: schweitzeralan on March 18, 2009, 04:43:39 AMI was recentiy contacted by Amazon UK about purchasing sundry piano works by one Moises Moleiro. The sender of the Amazon source claimed that since I bought recordings of several British composers, namely, Moeran and Bainton, I would like works by this composer. I heard one or two piano works plus a dance sequence on YouTube. It all sounded roundly Hispanic with suggestive harmonies of Albeniz. Other than that I have done no research on the composer other that I learned that he was a South American composer who was active in the early to mid 20th century. To me there is little if any relationship to Bainton, Moeran, or Bax. From what little I gleaned was that the few downloads were coloful, quite hispanic but considerably lightweight. Anyone out there familiar with this composer? I doubt I'll purchase any CD recordings of Moleiro. The Baxes, Moerans, VWs sound alikes are hard to find. The only one exception I know is Arthur Butterworth's 4th Symphony, a contemporary composer mentioned and discussed in this thread. He has his Baxian (and Sibelian) moments.
