With a painter or goldsmith’s touch, he brings unfailing elegance and a wide palette of tones to his readings of Chopin. His interpretations of Debussy are full of glowing colours, especially in the three pieces which draw their inspiration from Spain and which prompted de Falla to say that the French composer was the most faithful translator of the spirit of Spain. Flamboyant, and intoxicated with rhythms and heady scents, excerpts from the ballet El amor brujo (Love bewitched) and the rugged sun-scorched masterpiece Fantasia Baetica, find in Javier Perianes a faithful and uncompromising translator who upholds the honour of the Spanish school of piano in the unforgettable tradition of Alicia de Larrocha.
