Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in A Minor. Composed in 1946. Length: 28 '.

  • «Allegro energico»
  • «Moderato assai»
  • «Rondó: allegretto-Finale risoluto»

It was first performed on 3 March 1950 in the 3rd Winter Concert by Maria Canals and the Orquesta Municipal conducted by Eduard Toldrà. It was performed again on 15-16 March 1997 to mark the composer’s centenary year, by the Orquesta Sinfónica de Barcelona y Nacional de Catalunya under the baton of F. P. Decker with Emili Brugalla at the piano.

«As regards his first piano concerto, one senses that there is a greater degree of expressive control in this new composition, which makes for a quieter feeling. The adjective Iberian can be justified on the basis of its central motifs, which, in terms of their melodic length and rhythmic profile, seem to emerge from a genuinely popular feeling. Whilst the second and third movements are predominantly Catalan in tone, the first, by contrast, has a more southern feel to it.
From the formal point of view, the first movement is in classical sonata form, the second –the most lyrical- is in lied form and the third –a rondo- is more typical of ballet. In this work the piano is the solo instrument, but despite this, the orchestra does not merely accompany or reply to the piano; it maintains a lively dialogue with it and plays a substantial part in the composition as a whole.»
