Carles Cases is not just a musician, but somebody who lives for music. Music is at
the center of his existence and will do whatever it takes to complete a composition.
He needs solitude to work, therefore for more than a decade he lives in a reformed
Romanesque chapel in the heart of Ca-talonia. In this privileged setting everything
revolves around music composition. Only occasionally, will he offer chamber music
concerts for a reduced (and privileged) audience.

Until recently Cases worked with ruled paper, pencil and eraser; now the computer
wins. He does not use the piano, or any other instrument, while composing. His head
is his tool, and from this tool flows all the music and all orchestrations of his musical
scores. Often, his scores will sound for the first time in the recording studio or in
concert hall. This does not mean that he dislikes the pia-no, on the contrary. In spite
that his studies at the conservatory were centered on the cello (a choice made by his
family; other brothers were assigned different instruments) the piano is his favorite.
Proof of his love for the piano is the fourth disc in this box containing exclusively
piano performances.

Cases was born in Sallent de Llobregat, Barcelona in 1958. He is an ecletic musician
who very young played jazz in the Scandinavian countries. A few years later he became
the pianist and arranger for Lluis Llach (one of the best known Catalan singersongwriter).
After working together for a decade they wrote the musical score for the
film El rio que nos lleva (adaptation of the novel of Jose Luis Sampedro) directed by
Antonio del Real. From this point on composing for the cinema has be-come a mayor
focus of Cases carrier.

He has had worked with many directors: Antoni Verdaguer, Jaime Chávarri, Antonio
del Re-al, Jaume Balagueró, Ventura Pons, Gonzalo Suárez y Jesús Garay. The scores
of the films of the last three directors are the ones in this exclusive box that Rossetta
is proud to present. Several of works are available for the first time. Some, like Oviedo
Express (2007) had a limited edition that is no longer available. This box means that
music lovers can now recover an important title from this composer, together with
others previously unpublished, of great value and interest.

This special box contains 4 CDs with the original soundtracks of MIL CRETINS,
OVIEDO EXPRESS y DES DEL BALCÓ, and a selection of duets and piano solos of
several Cases’ sound-tracks.
