Almost 25 years ago, Joan Guinjoan's Fanfàrria inaugurated L'Auditori. In commemoration of this anniversary, the conductor Ludovic Morlot has chosen it to open this season, which revolves around the motto "power or revolt".
«Another of the greats of Spanish music, Luis de Pablo, defined him as “a spontaneous and free musical nature”, and José Manuel López López added him to the list of those 36 wise and upright men who justify the world, according to Borges’ imagination»
«A reference author of Spanish music since the mid-20th century»
«He is a figure on a par with great figures such as Manuel de Falla and Robert Gerhard»
«As in Tàpies’ painting, Guinjoan’s music, the music of contemporary abstraction, tends to the essential. But Guinjoan is a vitalist, a sensual Mediterranean, although in love with Schoenberg. Less cerebral than this dodecaphonist, than Messiaen or Boulez, Guinjoan is a solar musician, always brilliant in his combinatory art, and always playful, always sardonic»
«His repertoire, clearly vitalist, is a synthesis of languages coordinated by a personal style where rhythm and tone determine his Mediterranean origin»
«His work is vital and original and will always be a reference for future generations. He is, without a doubt, an enormous ambassador of our contemporary culture throughout the world»
