Program

Joan Lamote de Grignon is a key figure in the history of Barcelona Symphonic Band. Under his leadership it honed its musical excellence and became one of Europe’s leading bands. On the 150th anniversary of his birth, the Band pays tribute to him as a composer with key works like the sardana La rosa del folló and his scherzo based on the popular Catalan song La filadora. His suite based on the opera Déjanire by Saint-Saëns also illustrates his skills as an orchestrator, transporting us to the world of sound he created. 

2022 also marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of composer and teacher Manuel Oltra. Originally from Valencia, he lived and worked professionally in Barcelona. Although he is best known for his sardanes and choral pieces, this concert showcases some more substantial works, such as his Rhapsody for piano and wind instruments, and the symphonic poem L’alimara.
