CASABLANCAS, B.: Dark Backward of Time (The) / 3 Epigrams / Postlude / Love Poem (Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra, Mas-Conde)

Expressive power, meticulous virtuosity and a refined musical language combining the traditional and the avant garde have made Benet Casablancas one of today’s most widely recognised Spanish composers. The Dark Backward of Time is a richly-scored symphonic meditation, by turns tumultuous and tranquil. Among Casablancas’s best-known pieces, Three Epigrams concentrates exultant, nocturnal and jocular writing into a miniature triptych. Postlude and Love Poem are ambitious works in which compositional complexity turns towards greater formal and harmonic refinement. His tribute to compatriot Salvador Dalí evokes the lyricism and vibrant contrasts characteristic of the Spanish Surrealist painter’s works.
