English comments:
The Doble 5 Suite was composed in 1962 and first performed in 1974 by the Orquesta del Conservatorio Superior Municipal de Musica de Barcelona (Orchestra of the Municipal Higher Conservatory of Music of Barcelona) at the Palau de la Musica in the same city. The suite consists of five movements, entitled Pastoral, Infantil, Burlesca, Elegiaca and Festiva, which are written in the fresh and elaborate style that characterises the composer's work. Due to his eagerness to experiment with different instrumental combinations, Oltra tackles the challenge of uniting two quintets from different families, namely strings and woodwind, in this work. He takes advantage of the range of textures provided by both groups and develops a thematic composition that, in his own words, "has no pretence other than that of reflecting the suggestions of my inspiration in the score at all times".

Comentarios del Espanol:
La Doble 5 Suite fue compuesta en el ano 1962 y estrenada en el ano 1974 por la Orquesta del Conservatorio Superior Municipal de Musica de Barcelona en el Palau de la Musica de la misma ciudad. La forman cinco movimientos, titulados Pastoral, Infantil, Burlesca, Elegiaca y Festiva, escritos en el estilo fresco y a la vez elaborado que caracteriza la obra del compositor. Oltra, en su afan de experimentar con las diferentes combinaciones instrumentales, afronta en esta obra el reto de unir dos quintetos de familias diferentes, cuerda y viento madera, aprovechando el juego de texturas que ofrecen ambas formaciones y desarrollando un material tematico que, segun las propias palabras del autor, "no tiene mas pretension que la de reflejar en la partitura lo que la inspiracion me sugiere en cada momento.".
