These Two fantasies for guitar were composed to be included in a CD performed by the guitarist Joan Carles Martínez, with whom the composer had previously collaborated when Joan Carles Martínez recorded the Concerto for guitar and strings on CD.
The pieces of Catalan folk tradition chosen were La presó de Lleida (the prison of Lleida) and L’Hereu Riera (the heir Riera.) As mentioned in the libretto of the CD Guitar and Tradition the two fantasies commissioned by this record edition move within the context of tonal music with a great harmonic and rhythmic variety and often pointing out signs of modality.
