Sobre el concert

We have Rope! Commemoration of the 125th anniversary of Eduard Toldrà with music for string orchestra.

After the successful #Bachendansa project, the Chamber Orchestra of Inland Catalonia (OCCI) presents a new proposal that combines works by classical composers with pieces by Catalan authors. A string orchestra concert to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the birth of Eduard Toldrà .

Eduard Toldrà was one of the great composers, musicians and cultural dynamizers of Catalonia in the 20th century. The song was one of the genres in which it was most prolific, with about 50 works, most of them for voice and piano. The version we present is a premiere, with new arrangements for voice and string orchestra by Jordi Castellà .

Previously we will have heard the work Anufrievo , by the young composer and visual artist from Lleida Laura Farré . Introducing new authors is one of the obligations of our musical formations, and even more so if they are composers, so little present even today in the usual programming of auditoriums around the world.

The second part of the concert consists of two Suites that share the characteristic of using musical forms and characteristics prior to the time in which they were written. Thus, the Holberg Suite is based on musical forms of Baroque dance, and is one of the most deserving pieces by Norwegian composer and pianist Edvard Grieg . While the Capriol Suite is based on Renaissance melodies and dances, and is composed by English composer and critic Philip Arnold Heseltine , who used the pseudonym Peter Warlock to sign his musical compositions, among which the Capriol Suite is the best known and interpreted.
