Obertura festiva by Benet Casablancas was written for the Münchener Kammerorchester and its conductor Alexander Liebreich. The German orchestra performed the world premiere of the piece on March 7, at Palau de la Música in Barcelona as part of the 29th Season of Ibercàmera.

The music press has written wonderful reviews about the work:
"It is a work full of rhythm, of surrounding beginning and rich counterpoint play in the woodwind, with a poetic central part." Jorge de Persia – La Vanguardia
"With a pleasant and meditative central part – maybe the best of the work – surrounded by vivid and lively first and last sections, with an elaborated and sophisticated writing centred on the counterpoint."

Xavier Pujol – Revista Musical Catalana

"Interesting work of luminous sound"

Javier Velaza - AudioClásica
