Words of Josep Lagares about Clàssics Enderrock
Executive President of Metalquimia
In the autumn of 2007, in the Sant Pere Monastery of Besalú, the foundation was laid for what would become, one year later, the Cobla and String Symphony Orchestra of Catalonia (SCCC).
Seven years later, in the autumn of 2015, that Catalan Symphony Orchestra we had envisioned presented to all its fans, and to those who had not yet heard of it, a compilation of the most emblematic works from its first 6 albums… I am referring to SCCC THE VERY BEST.
Today, in mid-autumn of the year 2019, and with quite a successful and consolidated trajectory, the SCCC presents its second compilation album ENDERROCK CLASSICS, a compilation of the most captivating moments from its last 3 albums TOSSUDAMENT LLACH, CANÇÓ D’AMOR I DE GUERRA and the opera LLULL, all winners of the Enderrock Award for Best Classical Record in the popular voting category in the years 2017, 2018 y 2019 respectively… a singular and unprecedented success that confirms a virtuous triangle of the best Catalan Music (Nova Cançó, Zarzuela and Opera); a work that reflects the values of our land and is capable of conveying the essence of Catalonia, the Mediterranean, our people, our History and our Culture to different peoples around the world and to future generations.
Today, at such a complicated time for our Country, when freedoms and our most fundamental rights are being questioned, more than ever, ENDERROCK CLASSICS aims to be our humble tribute to all those who, from prison or exile, have fought for Catalonia and have put their country before their own welfare and self-interest. On behalf of the business family I have the honor to represent, I hope with all my heart that you will enjoy the beauty and emotion of this music that reminds us today of our deepest cultural and spiritual roots, as well as our legitimate desire for Freedom and Progress.
