Eduard Toldrà composed the comic opera El giravolt de maig from a libretto by Josep Carner. Dedicated to Amadeu Vives and premiered in 1928, the plot draws on the myth of spring in an 18th-century hostel in which characters experience, during the course of a night, unequal amorous temptations, prevented by the triumph of morning sanity.

Program

A masterpiece of Catalan Noucentisme and unique in Catalan operatic lyric poetry, El giravolt is the result of an era of intellectual and creative splendour, fuelled by currents of artistic renewal. On this occasion, the opera is recovered in concert version under the baton of Antoni Ros Marbà, who has recorded the work on two occasions: in 1968, in the Historical Anthology of Catalan Music, and in 2008, with the OBC, for the Harmonia Mundi label.
