Ofrena a Franz Schubert [Offering to Franz Schubert] is a work for string orchestra which was commissioned by the Camerata de la Schubertíada, with the intention of offering a surprise gift to Dr. Jordi Roch. The gift was presented at the end of a concert, without any prior knowledge on the part of Dr. Roch and with only a few words of introduction. Its presentation coincided with the 20th anniversary of the Schubertíada. 

The work is based on the three principal themes of the Allegro moderato of the “Unfinished Symphony” and along with them uses the same style of some of his quartets and makes allusions to them. Ofrena a Franz Schubert is a reflection of my profound study of Schubert’s music which has always had a very special place in my heart. The principal theme of the Unfinished Symphony opens the work, but in this case in a forte and cantabile passage. The music continues in my style—a mixture of Schubert and me—in a dialogue, with tempos and dynamics that constantly change, combining reflective moods with others that are uneasy.The final section is an episode divisi, ever more and more subtle, which is based on the murmur of the sixteenth notes that Schubert used at the beginning of the movement, following the very quiet presentation of the principal theme. Little by little, the music rises to the high register and the violins end the work with a tremolo in E Flat in the very highest register, which seems to become lost in space.
