With the release of "My Spanish Heart"   pianist Katarzyna Musial builds upon her previous recording, "Come Dance   with Me", exploring the idiom of dance through works by renowned Spanish   composers including Falla, Albeniz, Granados,Turina, Mompou.

In this program, Katarzyna Musial revels in the   artistic and cultural splendors of the Iberian peninsula. "You don't   have to be born in a culture to be enamored with it," she explains. In   fact, her love affair with Spain was first sparked during childhood when, at   five years old, she simply fell in love with the country upon a visit with   her parents.

Open to various forms of art, Musial has taken a   multidimensional approach in producing her latest project. Prior to recording   the album, she immersed herself and learnt flamenco dance to gain a deeper   understanding of the spirit of Spanish music. The diverse musical colors,   feelings and emotions of Spanish music seem to be a natural environment for Musial,   who with her pianistic temperament creates a delightful listening experience.   

According to Robert Ratajczak from Art Post Magazine, "Such well-crafted treatment of the   musical compositions of Isaac Albeniz or Manuel de Falla provides the   impression that the pianist is fully immersed in every note." 

The admiration for the music of famous Spanish composers   is widespread. For years, the repertoire - especially by guitarists and   pianists - has brought to the forefront compositions by Manual de Falla and   the numerous "fiestas" built with the sound and mood of   "flamenco".
