Leon Bosch records the works of Josep Cervera-Bret
Leon Bosch records the Berceuse, Elegia and Nocturno by the recently rediscovered Catalan virtuoso Josep Cervera-Bret, with pianist Sung-Suk Kang, for his 2013 CD release on Meridian Records. “I know, in my heart of hearts, that a lot of this music that I’m recording of Cervera’s will become standard repertoire because it is just too beautiful and too good not to be enduring.”
Alces Publishing presents an interview with Leon Bosch
‘Before too long, this music will become standard repertoire. Cervera will have as esteemed a place in the bass repertoire as Bottesini does.’ As his editions of the recently discovered cache of music by the neglected 20th century Catalan virtuoso start to appear, Leon Bosch tells Jeannot Maha, editor in chief of Editions Violone and Alces Publishing, why this long lost music is such an astonishing find.
