“This album carries within it the story of several musical and human encounters: the long and faithful friendship shared by the two composers, my striking encounter with Frederic Mompou when I was a young student at the conservatoire, then my long years of friendship with Narcís Bonet, and finally more recently our meeting with Ariane around these works, which generated a complicity and affinities in resonance with a music with a unique perfume, in which a certain modesty mixes with bursts of popular memory.” Ester Pineda

Ester Pineda first came to international notice when she was chosen to represent her country at the UNESCO in Paris on the occasion of the General Conference in 1991. Since then, Ester has given recitals at major venues in Britain (Wigmore Hall), Spain (Fondation March, International Festival of Torroella de Montgrí, Vinas Festival, etc.) France (Théâtre du Châtelet, Festival Chopin, Invalides, Festival d’Hiver du Château du Grand Jardin, Festival d’Annecy, Aix-les-Bains, Chambéry, Nice, etc.), Belgium, Latin America, Greece, Bulgaria, Slovakia and…


The virtuosity that emerges from Ester Pineda on stage is intimately linked to the depth of her musical expression. From the very first notes, she becomes at one with a public charmed by the finesse of her interpretation and her masterful playing.
