The OBC premiere Casablancas’s orchestral work

These coming 14 and 15 January, 2006, the Auditori de Barcelona hosts the premiere of the latest composition by the Catalan composer Benet Casablancas, The Dark Backward of Time, a title which quotes from Prospero in The Tempest by Shakespeare. The piece will be performed by the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya (OBC), who commissioned the work, conducted by Ernest Martínez Izquierdo. The work is sixteen minutes long and is conceived for a broad orchestral effect.
