Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carlos Baguer is one of the most outstanding Catalan composers from the last decades of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th. He was born, lived and died in Barcelona. For twenty two years of his life he worked as organist of the Barcelona Cathedral. He first obtained the post as a substitute in 1768, at the request of his uncle, Francesc Mariner, the official organist. Four years later, when his uncle died, he received the permanent appointment without having to take an examination. Like the vast majority of his fellow musicians at the time, Baguer lived and worked in a religious atmosphere, a fact that did not appear to excessively influence his musical output; contrary to what usually occurred with the remaining Catalan Read more composers living between the 18th and 19th centuries, this composer evidenced a considerable preference for and devotion to instrumental music. In the area of vocal music (almost always with orchestral accompaniment) Baguer also ventured into the field of opera, producing La princesa filosofa (The Philosopher Princess) in Barcelona in 1798, although his production was much more extensive in the field of religious and liturgical works.
