Program

Repertoire

Chopin's Prelude, Op. 28 No. 7, served as a starting point for Frederic Mompou in his Variations of a Theme of Chopin, a masterpiece from his works for piano, adapted for orchestra by Josep Soler.

Felip Pedrell's influence on Spain's leading composers from the first half of the 20th century (Manuel de Falla and Robert Gerhard) is well known. During both the latter's lives in exile, they wrote different tributes to their maestro. Pedrelliana is the last of Falla's Homenajes (Tributes), as is Gerhard's last movement of the symphony Homenatje a Pedrell (Tribute to Pedrell), composed in Cambridge to mark the centenary of Pedrell's birth. It was not published in its full version until 1972, although currently only the 3rd movement, Pedrelliana, is in print.

Robert Gerhard studied under Felip Pedrell from 1916 to 1920. His musical training under Pedrell and later Arnold Schönberg left a strong imprint on his compositions. Cancionero de Pedrell features a series of Catalan folksongs, compiled by Pedrell and arranged by Gerhard from an advanced musical perspective, highly influenced by Bela Bartok.
