Repertoire

FELIX MENDELSSOHN: The Hebrides, concert overture, op. 26 (1830) 10 ′
NÚRIA GIMÉNEZ COMAS: Ad limen caeli for chamber orchestra (2018) 8 ′
JOHANNES BRAHM: Symphony no. 1 in C minor, op. 68 (1855-1876) 45 ′

A very slow process of gestation and assimilation of the Germanic tradition - from the baroque universe of Georg Friedrich Händel to the subtlety of Franz Schubert, with the ubiquitous shadow of Ludwig van Beethoven - is what explains the more than twenty years that Johannes Brahms needed to craft his first symphony. The monumental Symphony in C minor it is a bold declaration of intentions that radically expands the limits of what is possible on the soundtrack and is nourished by a deep legacy. The initial ascending chromatic motif of the symphony has become one of the icons of the romantic symphonic repertoire, in a work that incorporates quotations from the famous "destiny" motif of the Fifth Symphony of Beethoven.

Girona-born composer Núria Giménez Comas reprises fragments, images, harmonies and passages of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Mass in B Minor to shape Ad limen caeli (Towards the doorway to heaven), in a work that takes place in an intricate set of layers and reliefs.
