Description: The Barcelona Symphonic Band and Salvador Brotons return with world premiere recordings of works commissioned from award-winning Catalan composers. Montsalvatge’s colorfully festive suite is followed by Amargos’ play on the timbres and dynamic force of wind instruments. Fabregas’ dramatic and emotional First Symphony contrasts majestic grandeur with the expressiveness of Catalan song, and Bertran exploits the virtuoso skill of the soloist in his incisive and lyrical Fantasy. Jonathan Camps (double bass), Barcelona Symphonic Band; Salvador Brotons.
