Radio premiere of Pepe’s Waltz

Radio premiere of David Cools’ recording of José Pagán’s Waltz on the Spanish National Radio.

On 22.01.2016, the Spanish national classical radio station broadcast a program about the music of my great-uncle, José Pagán López, tireless composer especially celebrated for his Habaneras.

Juan Antonio, his son, presented my recording of Pepe’s Waltz (José is Pepe in Spanish). I played and recorded the piece in 2009, in the d’Ursel Castle, on a Steinway B.

This Waltz was composed around 1951 and was a harmony study embodied in a Chopin-style nocturne.

Start listening at 10′.
