Christmas demands room for familiar things: the tastes and smells of traditional dishes, early nights drawing in, the excitement of opening presents or listening to seasonal tunes. Brotons’ Nadales catalanes has become a yuletide classic, partly because it includes a number of widely recognised popular songs, such as El petit vailet, L’àngel i els pastors and El cant dels ocells, among others, and partly because the score ends with the overwhelming energy of the first few notes of La santa espina.

Program

With a different character but the same message, the first movement of the Valencian composer Ferrer Ferran’s Symphony No. 2 describes, through verses from the Gospel according to St. Matthew, the birth of the baby Jesus and the events of the sacred story until his baptism in the river Jordan. A powerfully expressive work that will leave no one unmoved. The concert ends with other Christmas-inspired works, some of them festive and others of extreme delicacy, such as Lauridsen’s responsorial chant O Magnum Misterium.
