Josep Pi Collection (TomP)

Collection made up of 476 compositions of which 467 are the work of Josep Pi while the other nine are arrangements of works by Alonso, Mercadante and Torroba, among others. This collection is evidence of the influence of Indian music in the late 19th century, especially in terms of folkloric dance music, as well as the influence of the zarzuela, in the form of works by F. Alonso and F. Torroba. The repertory of compositions in the Pi Collection also includes concert music for a type of folk orchestra characteristic of the first third of the 20th century. The printed version of the catalogue was published in March 2009.1
