As a winner of the Luis Coleman Spanish music prize, Eduardo Ponce has rediscovered Spanish composers’ forgotten works. Ponce serves as chair of piano at the University of Salamanca, Spain. The program includes works by Maurice Ravel. Claude Debussy, Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and more.
