Program

Two world-first performances by Catalan composers and one of John Rutter’s most monumental works make this concert by the Symphonic Band one that should not be missed. Not only because of the works performed but also because of the participation of soprano Carmen Solís, the Cor Jove de l’Orfeó Català and Coral Cantiga, and the Barcelona Clarinet Players, who commissioned Tanzbilder from composer Enric Palomar. The Black Windows, by Agustí Charles, a work for voice and band, is based on four verses of Les fenêtres (The windows), a series of poems by Rainer Maria Rilke, published in 1927 with illustrations by Baladine Klossowska. 

John Rutter composed the Requiem in memory of his father. The work consists of seven movements which include texts from the Requiem Mass and the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. It opens with the contrast between darkness and light in the “Requiem aeternam” and closes with the brilliance of the magnificent “Lux aeterna”.
