English comments:
Dos movimientos for orchestra and violin was written in 1965 and it is my second work in this genre, after Burlesca Iberica (1963). Dos moviments comprises an Andante and an Allegro-Studio and my main concern was to bring together the special characteristics of string instruments and the expressive quality of the musical ideas. The Andante is built around a bipartite repetition of a statement developed by harmonies which create an almost chiaroscuro nostalgic atmosphere. The Allegro-Studio takes its inspiration from exercises for learners of bow instruments, the exercises designed by the teacher and violinist Otokar Sevcik. It is divided into three sections in which the initial design (the driving force behind the whole movement) is expressed by different moods. The repetition of rhythms in the first section is interrupted in the second part, giving rise to a nostalgic passage which evokes the first movement. After a brief suspensive cadence, it goes back to the main design, which is now more forceful and cheerful. This reflects the piece's real nature: a study. After this statement, the atmosphere changes suddenly and the music slowly fades out. Dos movimientos is published by Editorial de Musica Boileau and in recorded on compact disc by the German company "Col legno" from a live concert held in 1988 in Leningrad and performed by the Moscow Virtuosi. --Jordi Cervello

Comentarios del Espanol:
Dos movimientos para orquesta de cuerda data de 1965 y es mi segunda obra en este genero. Posteriormente escribi una version para orquesta de cuerda. Consta de dos movimientos, un Andante y un Allegro-Studio. El Andante esta construido sobre una forma bipartita reexpositiva desarrollandose por medio de armonias que tienden a un claroscuro de atmosfera nostalgica. El Allegro-Studio esta inspirado en ejercicios tipicos de los instrumentos de arco, concretamente de los ejercicios de mecanismo creados por el pedagogo y violinista Otokar Sevcik. Se divide en tres secciones a traves de las cuales el diseno inicial (motor de todo el movimiento) se desenvuelve expresando diversos estados de animo. La insistencia ritmica de la primera seccion se interrumpe en la segunda, dejando paso un fragmento nostalgico que evoca el primer movimiento. Tras una breve cadenza suspensiva vuelve el diseno principal, esta vez decidido y alegre, concretandose en su autentico caracter de estudio. Tras esta afirmacion, la atmosfera cambia repentinamente y la musica se diluye con lentitud hasta extinguirse. Dos movimientos esta editada por Editorial de Musica Boileau y registrada en disco compacto por la firma alemana "Col legno" a partir de un concierto en directo celebrado el ano 1988 en Leningrado e interpretada por los Virtuosos de Moscu. Otra grabacion es de la discografica "Ensayo" (ENY-2003), interpretada por el Hermitage Orchestra-Camerata St. Petersburg y dirigida por Alexis Soriano. --Jordi Cervello.
