Work dedicated to my good friend Josep Maria Angelats.

First incursion into this musical genre as classic as the symphony, one of the most popular genres among music lovers throughout the history of music of the last 200 years, while the most discredited for today's composers in day.

My particular relationship with the symphony was born precisely at the beginning of my passion for music, since the first work that impressed me deeply in my life was the symphony No. 6 "Pastoral" by Ludwig van Beethoven. But then they came in this order: Héctor Berlioz's Fantastic Symphony, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor, and Antonin Dvorak's "New World" Symphony No. 8. So the symphonies have been from the beginning of my dedication to music one of my favorite genres.

Throughout the following years, I have always enjoyed this musical genre with the masterpieces of the repertoire of irreplaceable authors such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bruckner, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Prokofiev or Nielsen, but also with authors like Britten, Berwald, Elgar, Franck, Stravinsky, Messiaen, Rautavaara, Part and many other authors that I do not mention but that I know and I have studied them in his day. For all that these authors have written throughout history, I have a great respect to the genre symphony.

So you understand that I have waited more than 25 years for a musical career, and more than 260 works in my catalog to enter this genre, and although I still have a lot to learn, I have felt the strength to try.

A classical symphony with four movements, and a lively and vital character, like many of the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart, or Prokofiev's extraordinary first symphony "Classical Symphony".

A total of 21 minutes of joyful and serene musical inventiveness, this is my first symphony.
