One of the so-called "lost generation" of Spanish composers, first gaining wide-spread recognition in the 1940s, pianist, critic, and composer Xavier Montsalvatge was influenced by antillanismo, neo-Romanticism, and French impressionism, especially Ravel. This edition of The Spanish Hour with Candice Agree features his most famous work 5 canciones negras, plus works for string quartet, piano, as well as selections from the opera El Gato con botas (Puss in Boots)
