JOAQUIM SERRA (1907 - 1957)
Joaquim Serra (1907–57) has gone down in Catalan musical history for his extensive catalogue of sardanas. Serra was a composer of extraordinary talent and his catalogue includes symphonic and chamber music and a dozen superb songs for voice and piano. His only contribution to the piano repertory was the Dansa (Dance) of 1931 and the 3 peces breus (3 Short Pieces) of 1932. One of the latter is the evocative Cançó de bressol (Lullaby), reminiscent of the refined and diaphanous sonorities of Mompou.
