a.[unknown titles]  (Composer Unknown)

Concert sponsored by COPEC (Consorcio Catalán de Promoción Exterior de la Cultura).

First set was a mix of latin and jazz standards by Montoliu and the rhythm section. On second set Mayte Martín was added interpreting boleros.

Boris Rabinowitsch's review (Politiken, March 26, 1994) stated that in the first set, the accompaniment "removed all scent from the piano" and that the percussionists "stood in the way of the musical expression" and the music was "all in all unbearable".

Eric Wiedemann's review (Information, March 26, 1994) found some of the Latin American pieces acceptable, while the jazz standards became more or less "banal nightclub music". In his opinion, the accompaniment was not an advantage and it would have been preferable "to hear Montoliu solo".

Both reviews acclaimed Mayte Martín's performance.
