Next Friday 3 December, at 12:30, will see the presentation of two monographic CDs: Elapsed Memories, by Agustí Charles, and Complete String Quartets and Trio, by Benet Casablancas. The act will be held at the Club Social of the headquarters of the Sgae Group in Catalonia (Passeig Colom, 6).

Ramon Muntaner, Llorenç Caballero, director of Tritó Edicions, and the composers themselves, Benet Casablancas and Agustí Charles, will speak at the presentation.

The work of the composer and musicologist Casablancas was recorded in the chamber music hall of the Auditori de Girona on 27, 28 and 29 July 2009 with the collaboration of the SGAE and the Fundació Autor, and consists of five pieces of music: Five interludes -quasi variazioni- (1983), String quartet no. 2 (1991), String trio (1992), Encore for Arditti (2004) and String quartet no. 3 -Raging in the Dark- (2009).

On the other hand, in September 2009 at the Auditori de Barcelona, the OBC under the baton of Jaime Martín recorded three orchestral works by the composer Agustí Charles: Elapsed Memories (2006), Double Variations (1994) and Effigies II (1998).

Tritó has just released two works by Joan Guinjoan, the fantasia for cobla Arrels (roots) and String Quartet No. 1. The two formations, cobla and string quartet, represent new ground in Guijoan’s prolific career.

Structured in three movements, Arrels evokes musical moments with deep ties to the composer’s childhood. Quartet de corda núm. 1 is a complex work of vast instrumental brilliance, with the demanding character typical of Guinjoan’s oeuvre.

Tritó offers specialized books on string instruments

Posted by Marcel Soleda on September 30, 2005  |  Leave a comment

Tritó has always striven for excellence and completeness not only in sheet music and CDs but in specialized literature as well, as seen in our catalogue of books on string instruments. Among the titles we offer is The Vihuela De Mano And The Spanish Guitar, the best study ever undertaken on the builders of the “vihuela” and Spanish guitars. Equally interesting and important is La chitarra di liuteria, by Stefano Grondona and Luca Waldner, which explores the construction of the guitar during the 19th and 20th centuries, and which includes a CD with selected pieces by Llobet, Tàrrega, Ponce and others. Finally, one of the few books ever written about Spanish luthiery is Los luthiers españoles, by Ramón Pinto i Comas, which you will also find in our catalogue.
