Catalogue Number: 02L097
Description: Both versions of the 1977 Glosses are heard here; the rewritten one is the one for orchestra, turning it into a veritable "concerto for orchestra". It uses themes by Casals the composer in three of its five movements, Catalan dance motifs in another while its finale is a riotous evocation of the spirit of Catalonia. Gisèle Ben-Dor (conductor). Original 1995 Koch International Classics release.
