Abstract:This project provides a comprehensive pedagogical guide for teachers and intermediate to advanced students who wish to explore Mompou’s piano repertoire but are unfamiliar with it. Chapter 1 briefly explores Mompou’s life and music, including his biography, his musical style, and influences from his contemporaries. This chapter also investigates Mompou’s thoughts on piano playing by referring to his pedagogical instructions on piano as expressed in his piano treatise L’Expressió, per a la interpretació al piano (Expression for Interpretation at the Piano) and his own recordings. In Chapter 2, my research has been devoted to categorizing Mompou’s complete piano works into pedagogical levels and musical styles. This includes a survey of Mompou’s complete piano works organized in to five major musical styles and in their order of difficulty: Intermediate (I), Advanced-Intermediate (AI), and Advanced (A). This exhaustive list includes both published works and those that were discovered and published after Mompou’s lifetime. Each piece is accompanied by a brief description of its musical style and features, and is followed by a pedagogical commentary that addresses technical issues and performance practices. An alphabetical list of his complete piano works with accompanying pedagogical references is provided in the Appendix.
