Federico Mompou

16 April 1893 Barcelona – 30 June 1987 Barcelona

"In reality, my music is the least "composed" music in the world. Ideas usually come to me when I'm distracted, much more often than when I concentrate."

"I live in the solitude of the great cities. I need the city".
Federico Mompou
