Short and sweet, Ernesto Lecuona’s piano pieces reflect a wide-ranging career early this century in Cuba and the States. The soulful melodic and scenically evocative numbers, strongly Latin, shine brightest. Stott relishes them all, alongside lightly showy waltzes and roof-raising encores, twee Afro-Cuban Dances and the odd hint of Joplin. Robert Maycock
