(1912 - 2002)

A leading Catalan composer, Xavier Montsalvatge had his musical training in Barcelona, where he worked as a composer and as a music critic, notably for La Vanguardia. He taught composition at the Conservatorio Superior Municipal.

Orchestral Music

Montsalvatge’s music has a distinctively Catalan character. In many respects it is eclectic in style, drawing on neoclassicism, impressionism, and a free use of serial technique.
