Our dear colleague, composer Benet Casablancas, recently celebrated his 60th birthday with a retrospective of his career in his hometown of Sabadell. The event at Teatre Principal included a round-table discussion moderated by conductor Santiago Serrate, followed by a monographic concert of works for large ensemble. The concert was recorded Catalunya Música for release (date TBD) on Columna Música.
Unsurprisingly for one of Spain’s most beloved composers, the occasion has received dozens of reviews and notices, in both local and national media, including an interview with Jesús Ruiz Mantilla for the prestigious daily El País.
Stay tuned for the release date of the concert recording. Until then, why not follow Casablancas on twitter?
