Banda Municipal de Barcelona© May Circus


    In 1927 the Municipal Band of Barcelona traveled to Frankfurt to participate in the international music exhibition that opened on June 11. Dirigida pel mestre Joan Lamote de Grignon, va oferir 8 concerts amb un total de 26 obres diferents, la majoria d'autors catalans i espanyols. In the last concert, the eminent composer and conductor Richard Strauss took the band's baton to conduct his symphonic poem Don Joan , a work that Lamote de Grignon himself had transcribed for the occasion. This same version, revised by José R. Pascual-Vilaplana, is the focus of much of this concert.

    The second work in the program, Symphony n. 2 by James Barnes, was premiered by the University of Kansas Symphonic Band. It is organized in three movements: an elegy, interrupted variations and a finale that ends with a spectacular and energetic coda.
