(1985 - )
I have known Mr. Coll’s music for several years and have from the start been impressed by his ear for timbre and his highly personal sense of musical structure. His music displays an original and powerful sense of drama, and his ideas about music proceed from a strikingly individual and unusual mind.
Meeting him for the first time made a huge impression on me: he was a young artist with a strong belief, determination and his intentions as a composer were absolutely clear. Since that day I have seen Mr. Coll Garcia working continuously to ensure a craftsmanship in projecting his musical ideas and visions on the orchestral forces. Mr. Coll Garcia has by now the craftsmanship which will enable him to go on and succeed with large scale projects.
