Year of composition
Homenatge a Puig Antich was originally composed under the title Tots amb un, for expanded cobla and narrator during the winter of 2006-2007. Three years later, the author orchestrated the work for symphonic band.
Based on the poem Dos de març de 1974 by Segimon Serrallonga, the work expresses and narrates the feelings of Salvador Puig Antich before his unjust murder with a vile stick by the authorities of the Franco dictatorship.
Conceived in a single uninterrupted movement, it is a composition that delves into the dramatic and expressive capabilities of the band. The narrator explains the distressing situations of Puig Antich and the music deepens the narration with strength and drama. There are sections of mystery, anguish, aggression and anger, culminating the work with the tragic outcome of the murder of the vile stick.
