Soloist(s) and Orchestra
VIOLIN CONCERTO NO. 1 [is] satisfying with attention-grabbing lines and effects.
Stephen Ellis, Fanfare,1/1/0001
Leonardo Balada is a contemporary Spanish composer heavily influenced by native Catalan folk music who also manages to transcend the imposing presence and influence of de Falla. Witness the extraordinary VIOLIN CONCERTO, most of whose 26 minutes is devoted to the pyrotechnics of the soloist [in] this beautiful - and decidedly original - work.
