Spanish-born composer and pianist Jose Bonet, known for his piano works, offers his release Entre Ayer Y Hoy (Between Yesterday and Today). Bonet combines a frolicking nature with a dramatically intense style. His love of the music is evident in each piece. He allows his emotions to emanate from the keys as he plays, his self-expression to flow through the notes he has written.

“Atrezzo Barbaro” is his first presentation on this album. It is artfully written and beautifully performed, and finds him adding a soft Spanish flair to his classical style. This becomes his signature sound. “Consecuencia” is a romantic and entrancing selection. You can feel the depth of feeling pour into the song, in which he combines quick movements with spirited keywork.

“Isabel” is a gentle and sadly demonstrative musical number. Here we begin to fully realize that this artist allows himself to be exposed through his works. He is unafraid and he holds nothing back. “Que Ti Iba A Decir” is a more lively number. The quick pattern of notes makes for a lively, energizing, happy song.

Oddly enough, although out of my usual comfort zone, I actually enjoyed the repetitious nature of “En Aquel Momento.” Entrancing and sensitively laid out, it builds on itself, repeating the notes over and over. Somehow, surprisingly, it does not become boring or mundane. The music is distinctive and does not become tiring; it remains fresh and interesting.
