Catalan composer Leonardo Balada has catapulted over a course of development only partially revealed by the two works on this new Naxos disc. María Sabina, arguably Balada’s most well-known work, comes from fairly early in his career, in 1969. Balada’s own description of the work as a tragifonia (tragic symphony) is apt, for it has a symphonic scope and a stark impact. The devotion of the performers is visceral and intense. When orchestra and chorus join for a slow glissando from low to high and back down again (around 9:30 in Part II), it is primordial, like a force of nature suddenly encountered for the first time. The ensuing enchanted, sinuous melody that rises up to radiant heights, only to be attacked by the return of brutal tone-clusters can only be described as a moment of pure genius, both in composition and in performance.

Leonardo Balada Ibáñez (born September 22, 1933, in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain) is a Spanish American classical composer, who is noted for his operas and orchestral works. After studying piano at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona, Balada emigrated to the United States in 1956 to study at the New York College of Music on scholarship. He left that institution for the Juilliard School in New York, from which he graduated in 1960.
