Having read and reread, countless times, the poems of Federico García Lorca, in 2002, during a break while he was writing La Passió de Jesucrist, l'etern vivent, Ferrer started composing Amparo, about which he remarks: I did it in a single afternoon, I just couldnt stop, something that's never happened to me before with any of my other compositions. He composed La Lola, Balcón and Casida de la Muchacha Dorada over the next two years. Originally they were intended for voice and piano, and immediately afterwards a version for chamber orchestra was written (Ref. E709). In 2011, Ferrer was invited to conduct a concert of his works with the Symphonic Orchestra of Sofia (Bulgaria) which resulted in a third version of the songs, for voice and symphony orchestra: the version that was finally premiered.
Although in principle the composer had not conceived the songs as a set, we recommend that for the best end result they are performed in the form of a series and in the same order that we have published them.
Their unison stems from their common features: cadences and melodic turns that appear at different moments. Enric Ferrer has managed to maintain a perfect equilibrium and achieve the ideal symbiosis by adapting the music to the poem it represents.
