Carles Baguer is one of the key figures of Catalan Classicism. He has written nineteen symphonies – all of them influenced by the style and spirit of Franz Joseph Haydn, a greatly appreciated composer in Catalonia at the time – which clearly show that symphonic music heritage is not exclusive to central Europe.

Program

Like Haydn, Carles Baguer excelled in the composition of oratorios and even wrote an opera, La principessa filosofa. We will hear his Second Symphony in C Minor. Unlike Baguer, Mozart and his music need no introduction. We will hear the genius of Salzburg’s great Symphony No. 39 in E flat (a very Mozartian key, the relative major of the key in which Baguer’s symphony was written) and his Piano Concerto No. 21 in C, with that andante, the second movement, that is one of the most beautiful fragments of music ever written. All this under the baton of Andrea Marcon, a specialist in historical music, and with the fingers of Albert Cano Smit, a young pianist for whom the adjective “promising” already falls short.
