COMMENTS

After having written the other two sardanes "revessa" for the "Associació Sardanista de Sabadell" Toldrà was asked the next year to write another one for the Dance Competition Festival in Olot. Written for a sardana Contest held in the Plaça de toros de Olot, on September 11 of that year. Cobla "La Principal de la Bisbal". Toldrà should be noted that, having agreed three times to the composition of paths sardanas "revesses" for competitions, decided not to give more to such requirements, not interested in the genre. The need to give the composition a structure that could qualify as hieroglyphic to hinder "the account and the cast" to the contestants, forced him to limit excessive innate lyricism. It is therefore a curiosity to offer hearing of his three sardanas "revesses".
