Program Notes

A desgrat del qualificatiu que té de "petit quadre simfònic" no es pot pas dir que MONTMAGASTRE sigui una obra descriptiva. Més aviat sembla una música de dansa amb regust popular català, però amb temàtica original. És una obra fermament estructurada (com gairebé totes les d'aquest autor), escrita originàriament per a cobla l'any 1970. Uns anys més tard, el compositor mateix en feu una versió per a orquestra.

- Program Note from publisher


Manuel Oltra is one of the best-loved composers in Catalonia because, in addition to his work as a composer and arranger, he has taught composition to more than two generations of Catalan musicians. His music is sophisticated and delicate, always straightforward, never speculative.

Montmagastre dates from 1970. Originally composed for cobla, it was arranged for band by Oltra’s former student Jordi León, oboist and flabiolaire with the Banda Municipal de Barcelona.
