Program Notes

The Great Spirit is a two-part symphonic work that Ferrer Ferran dedicated to the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. Ferran depicts various stages of the life of this ingenious architect and master of round, organic forms and shapes: from his humble beginnings to working on the Sagrada Familia, which would turn into a life-long task. Mirroring Gaudí’s architecture, the musical lines of Gaudí are fluid and organic, the structure expansive, rich in colour and spellbinding, just like the buildings of the great Catalan architect.
