Poems Without Words is born in a period of time in which our lives were destined for fear and sadness, moments in which Guinovart wanted to give us rays of hope and confidence in a better future, publishing a piece on his social networks every day to make us feel accompanied. These pieces are gathered in twenty-four marvelous preludes composed during the most uncertain moments experienced in the world in 2019, which Guinovart premiered on his Instagram channel every week, with the intention of accompanying us in those difficult moments with melodies full of hope. They comforted us, gave us strength, and reminded us that beauty was more necessary than ever in those tough times.

Albert Guinovart's music makes us forget the temerity with which we face the unknown. With Albert, we find ourselves at home, in beautiful Barcelona, in that portion of Barcelona that we all carry within. His music defies the thunder of the storm, transforming it into color, and when it becomes difficult for us to reach joy, we only need to remember a melody by Guinovart to smile again, because his music resides where all beauty and nobility rest.”.



On May 12, 2023, Sony Classical releases Albert Guinovart's second monographic work of piano pieces, following Nocturne, which reached over half a million streams on Spotify.

In addition to the recording of the twenty-four preludes composed during the global pandemic in 2019, Poems Without Words also includes new works that add to his magnificent Nocturnes, Retrats, and Noveletas. For the first time, it features a recording of his compositions based on poems by Emily Dickinson. According to Juan Ángel Vela del Campo's account of Albert Guinovart's new work, "...the composer's five piano poems, based on texts by Emily Dickinson, are the crown jewels of this new release by Guinovart. Two great sensibilities from different historical periods come together in a poetic-musical dialogue as suggestive as it is emotional. Guinovart transcends not only musical borders but also literary and poetic ones on this occasion. Five pieces, each around three minutes long, with music for eternity."

Poems Without Words is completed with five new nocturnes: Eulàlia, Poema d'amor, Adelaisa, "Amor prohibit," and Nocturn a Maria. As a novelty in the author's catalog, it also includes three lullabies: per Elisa, per Daniele, and per Clara.

Review| 'Poems Without Words' por Josep Bosch (Sonograma Magazine)

Guinovart mostra els trets de la seva gramàtica musical i dona eines per fer-se preguntes noves sobre els nombrosos neguits de Dickinson, a mig camí de la paraula i el so del piano. Amb el seu afany d’exhaustivitat, el pianista fa un recull de les seves noves composicions —quaranta-quatre peces curtes—, amb què vol oferir un raig d’esperança.
