Program

In Urban Requiem, Michael Colgrass, winner of a Pulitzer prize, takes us on a moving journey to the heart of Manhattan. The BCN Sax Quartet introduces us to an urban soundscape that recalls the golden years of the Big Apple, contrasting them with the languid deterioration of the late twentieth-century. Jazz is the basis of the work but the score includes a wide range of styles, from western classical music to the bright colours of Latin and Afro-American music. David Maslanka’s Requiem is not allegorical. It refers directly to the horrors of the Holocaust and the innocent, anonymous deaths caused by war. The music is calm and hopeful, however, designed to close wounds and move on. 

José Micó, solo clarinettist with the Symphonic Band, plays the III Concerto for Clarinet and Concert Band by Óscar Navarro. This Valencian composer has made a name for himself internationally as a performer and the author of symphonic works and music for film soundtracks.
