CENTENNIAL CONCERT PROGRAMME
Carmen, suite no. 1, by Georges Bizet
Follia daliniana, by Xavier Montsalvatge. Sinfonietta for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, string orchestra and percussion
Suite empordanesa, by Juli Garreta
Intrada sobre el nom de Dalí, by Benet Casablancas
This work by Benet Casablancas had its first performance as the introduction to the Centennial Concert. It was written for symphony orchestra specially for this occasion and dedicated to Antoni Ros Marbà. The work focuses entirely and strictly on the notes D, A and B, whose note-names under the latin notation system together form the artist's surname, thus rendering him homage. With a formal design that is extremely concise and filled with vibrant and varied expression, the work is dominated by exultant fanfares that frame lyrical passages and a central fugato scherzando.
