In our desire to provide a platform for unpublished works by Catalan composers, Tritó releases an interesting short piece by Manuel Valls i Gorina (1920-1984), a composer and music critic who worked often in radio and other mass media.
In this Suite brevíssima. Variacions radiofòniques sobre “El cant dels ocells”, the composer takes the popular Catalan melody to build a suite with four contrasting variations. It appears that the work, of which the exact date of composition is unknown, was intended as incidental music for a radio programme in the 1970s.
