    Scherzo on a popular theme (La filadora, or the Spinner) was the first significant work for orchestra of Joan Lamote de Grignon. It was composed in 1897 and, according to the original manuscript of the score, it was revised and re-orchestrated in 1910. Between 1916 and 1920 it was performed seven times within the programme of the Symphonic Orchestra of Barcelona, alongside works by the great composers. He later went on to transcribe the piece for bands.
    In his book Joan Lamote de Grignon, no.8 of the Catalan Composers collection (Ed. Proa, Barcelona, 1998), musicologist Francesc Bonastre i Bertran states that from the melody of La filadora (The spinner) “comes the main theme, which glides over the whole piece, whether in its original form or with slight variations on the motif. The general structure of the Scherzo is very balanced, breaking with the stratification of the classical scherzo yet maintaining the playful spirit and confident nature that created it.”
    This edition that Clivis has undertaken is the first since the work was composed.
