PROGRAM NOTES


In this piece the author uses, in a personal way, the material derived from three popular Catalan children's songs. These songs (“sol solet”, “cargol treu banya” i “el gegant del pi”), very well known among the Catalan children, serve as a starting point for the realization of a particular sound world that goes from the enlarged hue to atonal elements passing through more shocking timbre effects. The first and third movements are written in a mocking tone, while the second is more intimate and collected. As a whole they form three small pieces, the intention of which is none other than the simple desire to have a good time.
