Les set edats is the result of the joint concert project by the Orfeó Badaloní and the Banda Simfònica de Badalona.
However, the origin of the score lies long in the composer’s youth – a Shakespeare monologue recited at the theatre hall where English Literature courses took place in the Valencia University. Certainly, the circle of life was rich enough a pretext for a cantata – from the tenderness of the newborn, through the innocence of the child, the later teenage foolishness, the sense of invincibility of the youth, the complexity of maturity, and to the positive old age of most of the Orfeó members. Last, death is looked upon from a quiet, neutral stand. The situation assessed, one understands it is but one more stage in the circle of life.
