Impressions simfòniques

Juli Garreta (1875 - 1925)

The Catalan composer Juli Garreta has been well by the composition of sardanas, but his orchestral work has to be attended.

Illes Medes was premiered in 1923 in Palau de la Música Catalana eith Pau Casals as conductor.

Although there isn’t a programmatic work, ther is a poetic inspiration to describe a particular time in a landscape.

Impressions simfòniques is the composer’s first orchestral work.

The score of this work remained unpublished for over a century (the first edition was published by Tritó), despite it being premiered in 1907.

Joaquim Rabaseda and Joan Gay , that both recovered and edited the score and the notes of this album, tell us that Juli Garreta was known in his time as the "Wagner of the Sardana."

The performance by the OBC (Symphony Orchestra of Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya) hand Miquel Ortega as conductor, contribute to make this CD a specially recommended for lovers of symphonic music.

Las buenas interpretaciones redondean un trabajo ejemplar en favor del patrimonio musical.

"Remarkably individual, delicately easely on the ear ans unexpectedly 'un-Spanish'"... "This a sea vista of a high order, which becomes more haunting as it becomes really familiar, and this beautifully played and recorded disc is increasingly rewarding"

"... el sello TRITÓ lanza un disco de enorme interés dedicado íntegramente a dos obras de Juli Garreta [...]Ha sido un acierto inmenso recuperar estas dos piezas ignoradas de Garreta [...] La versión de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Bracelona y Nacional de Cataluña, bajo la batuta dle experto maestro, Miquel Ortega, ayuda a percibir a Garreta como el gran compositor que fue."

Las islas Medas de Juli Garreta, un hermoso poema sinfónico de resonancias germánicas.

Cal esperar que aquest CD no passi inadvertit i que sigui objecte del reconeixement que mereix.

Les illes medes, estrenado por Pau Casals en 1923, es una pieza maestra, en plena sintonía con el refinamiento straussiano que marcó su época.

"Tenir l'idea de rescatar de l'oblit obra simfònica de juli Garreta constitueix una demostració de sensibilitat i criteri, escassos en la nostra indústria musical"

Muchas gracias for sending my CD order so quickly. I wanted to tell you that all the music was wonderful; brilliantly played and recorded. Thank you Trito for the recordings of the Garreta compositions. What a shame that in the UK this music, as well as the glorious symphonies of Breton, are unknown.

I recently used trito.es to order a lovely CD of music by the Catalan composer Juli Garreta (Impressions simfoniques) and the service was excellent - v fast and reasonably priced. I would certainly recommend them and will be checking out the CDs you mention!
