(Complete set)  --  This work is the fruit of an commission made by the soloists of the Orquestra de Cambra Catalana –conducted by Joan Pàmies—, for a concert that took place in October 2003 at the Centre de Cultura Contemporánea of Barcelona (CCCB). Càntic is constructed from the development of two themes, which produce two sections, the first of which reappears modifications, giving rise to a ternary structure. The first theme is characterized by the dynamic and rhythmic contrast (emphasized by the alternation of the simple binary and composed binary compasses). The second theme provides an expressive more lyrical, and totally new character. Written in a single movement, the work begins with a daring dialogue with a syncopated rhythm between the violin and the cello in double strings, playing with the colours of the different harmonies created, while the clarinet adds brief melodic motives. The central part contrasts with the first section in the tempo, a lot calmer, and in the lyrical character of the melody developed by the clarinet. The violin and the cello create an accompaniment that provides a new tone, a series of harmonies that lead very discretely toward a climax. Here the initial theme appears again, but this time it provides a progressive dramatic tension that builds up until it explodes at the cadence.

Càntic is a work that requires a great rapport among the players in the making of the different textures that arise, in order to accentuate the sections where rhythmic, dynamic and harmonic contrasts have a vital role.
