Part of the Florence Bayz Music Series


Dr. Mac McClure is internationally recognized for his profound and in-depth knowledge of Spanish music.  In the words of Xavier Montsalvatge, “Mac knows my music just as well if not better than me, and is an excellent performer of Falla, Mompou, and Granados and is one of the most outstanding protégés of the Marshall Academy.”  He has recorded forty compact discs of Catalan and Spanish repertory.  Among these recordings, the world-premiere recording of the songs by Albéniz, the first recording for the complete version of the Granados quintet, as well as the complete songs and three discs of piano music by Frederic Mompou. All recordings are available on digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.  He studied with Michael Zenge, Phyllis Rappeport, and Consuelo Colomer. At the Marshall Academy in Barcelona (founded by Granados in 1901), he studied with Carlota Garriga, and for nine years with Alicia de Larrocha.  He has studied and worked in detail directly with the following composers, learning and performing their music: Xavier Montsalvatge, Joaquin Nin-Cumell, Carlos Surinach, Ricardo Llorca, Miquel Ortega, Carlota Garriga, Xavier Turull, Moises Bertran, Alberto Garcia Demestres, Miquel Ortega, Luis Carlos Figueroa and Jaime Leon.  He studied in depth the French vocal repertoire with Dalton Baldwin (1997-2003) performing practically the complete vocal works of Debussy, Poulenc and Faure.  He has edited and published numerous scores for the publishing firm Boileau Music ( in Barcelona (Albeniz, Granados, Cassado and Gerhard).  He is Associate Professor of piano at National University in Bogotá Colombia.  More information can be found at
