Background
Celestí Sadurní i Gurguí (1863-1910) was a Catalan composer and conductor who studied at the Conservatori del Liceu, and worked as a professor for various music schools in Barcelona, Spain during the 1880s. In 1886 he established the Municipal Orchestra and Municipal Music School of Barcelona with fellow composer Josep Rodoreda. In 1887 he became the assistant conductor of the Municipal Orchestra, and its director in 1897. In addition to the orchestra, Sadurní conducted a number of choral groups, operas, and other groups in Spain and France. Sadurní also composed a number of works, both religious and secular, although most of his works were unpublished.
