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The score of this work remained unpublished for over a century (the first edition was published by Tritó), despite it being premiered in 1907.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