Que aquest Nadal estigui ple de música!

Aquest any les tradicions, les festes… es viuen diferent, i el Nadal no se n’escapa. Caldrà ser imaginatius per poder-lo celebrar, i la música en serà un element clau.

Us presentem diferents propostes nadalenques, tant per a formacions instrumentals, per a orquestra, cobla, com també per a cor infantil, cor mixt…

El cant dels ocells és potser una de les melodies més conegudes del repertori tradicional i que, més enllà de ser una nadala, s’interpreta en molts altres àmbits. La podreu trobar en l’harmonització que Salvador Brotons ha fet per a guitarra, així com la versió de Pascual Martínez per a instrument melòdic i piano.

Les Nadales catalanes, Op.76 de Salvador Brotons és una de les suites nadalenques més interpretades durant aquestes dates, la trobareu amb diverses versions per a orquestra, banda simfònica, cor mixt i orquestra (o piano), cor infantil i orquestra (o piano) o fins i tot per a tenora (trompeta o clarinet) i orgue.

Per a cor mixt, cal destacar les 2 obres del director i compositor Xavier García Cardona, la seva harmonització amb aires de jazz de El desembre congelat i el seu preciós O Magnum Mysterium.

Per a cor infantil, podeu triar i remenar dins els cançoners de nadales dels compositors catalans Josep Marimón i Agustí Cohí Grau, amb harmonitzacions i composicions per a una, dues o tres veus, així com també la suite de Nadales catalanes de Salvador Brotons.

Dins el repertori per a cobla us presentem la Rapsòdia de Nadal, de Fèlix Martínez Comín i la sardana Estels de Nadal de la seva esposa Pepita Llunell.

May this Christmas season have lot of music

This year the traditions, the festivities… are lived differently,  and it seems to be the same for Christmas. We have to be imaginative to be able to celebrate it and music will be a key element.

We present different Christmas proposals, for instrumental formations, for orchestra, cobla, as well as for children’s choir, mixed choir …

The Song of the birds (Cant dels ocells) is perhaps one of the most well-known melodies in the traditional repertoire and it is performed in many ocasions, although it is a carol. You can find it in the harmonization that Salvador Brotons has made for guitar, as well as Pascual Martínez’s version for melodic instrument and piano.

Nadales catalanes (Catalan Christmas Carols), Op.76 by Salvador Brotons is one of the most performed Christmas suites during this season, you will find it in various versions for orchestra, symphonic band, mixed choir and orchestra (or piano), children’s choir and orchestra (or piano) or even for tenor (trumpet or clarinet) and organ.

For mixed choir, it is necessary to emphasize the 2 works of the director and composer Xavier García Cardona, its harmonization with airs of jazz of “El Desembre congelat” (Frozen December) and its beautiful “O Magnum Mysterium”.

For children’s choirs, you can choose and mix the carol songs of the Catalan composers Josep Marimón and Agustí Cohí Grau, with harmonizations and compositions for one, two or three voices, as well as the suite “Nadales catalanes” by Salvador Brotons.

In the cobla repertoire we present the “Rapsòdia de Nadal”, by Fèlix Martínez Comín and the sardana “Estels de Nadal” by his wife Pepita Llunell.

During this Christmas season, we want to give a little present to our friends, a song for voice and piano “The day of the Biblical Magi” from 1946 by the Catalan composer Josep Marimón. There is a a download in Spanish and in Catalan language.
