After the resounding success of their first volume of Catalan Wind Music (Naxos 8.573547), the Barcelona Symphonic Band and Salvador Brotons return with world premiere recordings of works commissioned from award-winning Catalan composers. Xavier Montsalvatges’s colourfully festive Music for a Sunday is followed by Joan Albert Amargós’ play on the timbres and dynamic force of wind instruments in Thematic Games. Elisenda Fábregas’ dramatic and emotional First Symphonycontrasts majestic grandeur with the expressiveness of Catalan song, and Moisès Bertran exploits the virtuoso skill of the soloist in his incisive and lyrical A Double Bass Fantasy.
