Josep FÓbrega (?-1791)
The work of Josep FÓbrega is important within the context of
catalan music as FÓbrega is the most prolific of the first generation
of catalan composers writing symphonies, a group of musicians who,
around 1760 or even before, assimilated the style of classicism and
began writing overtures and symphonies. Their symphonic style fits
perfectly within the italian roots of the classicism: works in three
movements, şthe second frecuently in a minor keyş, a gallant style,
omnipresence of sonata scheme in the fast movements and use of the
binay form in the central parts.
