Mosaic music

This concert is formed by undoubtedly spiritual works, although the two halves do not share thematic content. While the Schubert’s Psalm 23 and Guinovart’s Missa could be considered to be part of the tradition of Christian texts, the second work, “There will come soft rains” includes a message of denouncement regarding gender violence by men in contrast to nature, which lies indifferent to this behaviour. The second half begins with three texts related to the moon, a religious symbol in some cultures and protagonist in many of García Lorca’s texts.

The concert concludes with a selection of songs by Eduard Toldrà that Jordi Domènech has adapted for choirs of same voice and piano in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the composer’s death. Pieces with texts by various Catalan authors and by Quevedo.
