My pleasure, chap, ;) and thank you for those Niemann scores you've uploaded of late; his works are definitely one of my best musical trouvailles ever!

Very best,

Ponce's piano concerto would be a dream come true for me. I dare say it's even more romantic than Grieg's...

Definitely another musical gem by Ponce, that one! However, I'm afraid I don't have it, and the only score I've come across so far is the 2-pianos arrangement by Ponce himself, which you can find at IMSLP: https://imslp.org/wiki/Concierto_%22Rom ... 2C_Manuel) It's not even at UNAM's Faculty of Music's library, apparently. Maybe at the library of the National Conservatoire...

Best,

This one is not as big an Ituarte favorite as "Ecos de México", but it's still definitely a fun one to play. 8-) It was included (alongside "Ecos de México") in Katsaris' recording "Latin American Piano Vol.1". Here's the recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naDMO-iC3bI

Hope you enjoy it!

Greetings/Saludos, I stumbled on a charming Mexican Salon piece entitled "Gavota de Amor" by Carlos Del Castillo. There are surprisingly a lot of Youtube videos of his piano pieces but only the Gavota comes up. Has anyone ever heard of Señor Del Castillo? For those of us with Ponce, Villanuevas, and Rosas on our stands, an addition or two is much welcomed! ¡Gracias!

Carlos del Castillo (1882-1959). En 1895 se inscribió en el Conservatorio y tomó clases con Meneses. En 1903 obtuvo una pensión por parte del Gobierno Federal para continuar sus estudios en Europa. Estudió en el Conservatorio de Leipzig, teniendo como maestro a uno de los discípulos de Liszt, Alfred Reisenauer, graduándose en 1906. Tocó en Italia, Francia, Inglaterra, Bélgica, Estados Unidos y Alemania con gran éxito[1].
La verdadera vocación de del Castillo era la enseñanza y, al volver a México, se dedicó por completo a enseñar. En noviembre de 1907 fundó la Academia Juan Sebastián Bach, en la que impartía su enseñanza, siguiendo el sistema de Liszt. Reunía a sus alumnos, tocaba para ellos la pieza que se iba a estudiar y hacía los comentarios y explicaciones que considerara pertinentes, para después escuchar al alumno, que había preparado previamente la pieza, con la finalidad de hacer las correcciones y observaciones que juzgara necesarias. Además, fue profesor del Conservatorio desde 1908, hasta que, en 1923, fue nombrado director del mismo, cargo que desempeñó por cinco años. Compuso diversas obras de salón para piano como el vals Cerca de tu alma, una serie de danzas mexicanas, el Minueto Pompadur, Tambourin, Serenata Blanca, o la Suite de Rococo, por sólo mencionar algunas. Aunado a lo anterior, realizó una interesante labor editorial, llevando a cabo diversas publicaciones[2].

A nice little waltz by Ricardo Castro - Valse caressante. My reworking of JPGs I found elsewhere.
