Notes & Reviews:

The three symphonic compositions by Joan Guinjoan featured on this recording represent the great Catalan composer's creative maturity.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Joan Guinjoan's orchestral music is characterized by constant activity and energy. Each instrumental family usually works as one in a rapidly developing theme that climaxes before ceding to another. There is evidence of Guinjoan's appetite for extended techniques and creative orchestration. The exception is the violin concerto (Vol.1), which necessitates a more nuanced orchestrational balance to accommodate the soloist. Here there is more intrigue, more variation, and more of a formal contour to the work.
