Clarinettist Joan Estellés and bassoon-player Daniel Ortuño will perform the solos of the Duett-Concertino by Richard Strauss. The idea of turning the spotlight on certain members of the Barcelona Symphony Band, put into practice at this concert and previous ones, is a very interesting one. This work by Strauss, in brilliant, crystalline, neo-Classical style, is one of the last that he composed. The German composer wrote to his publisher, joking that the last movement was a dance between a princess and a grotesque creature that finally turned into a prince.

Program

Miguel Asins Arbó–born in Barcelona but considered to be a Valencia composer–wrote La noche de San Juan (Saint John's Eve), a mature work that was awarded the Music Award for Big Symphony Bands by the SGAE in 1990. The concert opens with Glinka's overture from Ruslin and Lyudmila, an opera based on a poem of the same name by Aleksander Pushkin.
