Danses de la terra consists of four dances:
- I. Ball d’entrada (Opening dance);
- II. Dansa de rondalla amorosa (Dance of amorous tale);
- III. Ball ceremonial de purificació (Ceremonial dance of purification);
- IV. Records de sardana (Memories of sardana).
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.
