Xavier Montsalvatge’s music enriched Catalan culture throughout the second half of the twentieth-century, and he remained one of Spain’s leading composers. This overview of his orchestral music begins with excerpts from his ballet Manfred, which reveal the important influence of Stravinsky. The ingenious Bric à brac is his last orchestral work, written when he was 81 and premièred by the forces who perform it on this recording. The mainly orchestral Simfonia de Rèquiem is one of Montsalvatge’s most important and well-known works.

“Montsalvage is an intriguing composer and on this evidence is a master of mood conjured concisely.”

****

“The performances are admirably clear-textured: the Barcelona Symphony, as one might expect, have this music in their systems.”
