Video of premiere at Palau Güell in Barcelona by Roger Morelló Ros. (version for cello)
Danses de la terra for viola (2023) (10’) (Catalan dances) is an arrangement for viola of the same work for cello written for Catalan cellist Roger Morelló Ros. The version for cello was premiered at Palau Güell on October 28, 2020. Although not literally based on traditional Catalan music, this work is inspired by the composer’s childhood memories of Catalonian dances and folk music. As a Catalan living outside Catalonia since 1978, the author recreates a Catalan sound world of melodic and rhythmic folk idioms tinged with emotions from her childhood.
This work consists of four dances:
- Ball d’entrada (Opening dance)
- Dansa de rondalla amorosa (Dance of amorous tale)
- Ball ceremonial de purificació (Ceremonial dance of purification)
- Records de sardana (Memories of sardana)
