2015 is the twentieth anniversary of the death of Ovidi Montllor. Sad anniversary that has led Toti Soler to the creation of a new poetic / musical setting to revive the artistic and moral legacy of the one who made trembling with so much tenderness, so hard, with so much hope and so much bitterness. And so, over twenty-five years of mutual admiration, with mutual delivery, of mutual marvels for the voice and the fingers of music, they make the recital L’Ovidi, an unfinished poem, a metaphorical reference to the title of the poem of Salvat-Papasseit to whom Ovid and Toti put together music and voice together and separately: a life and a work that is unfinished prematurely; an artist who left us too soon. Once again, Toti Soler is the transparent and indispensable echo of the one that linked letters and roses and offered the kings and the aces of the most frank and loyal artistic and personal alliance. The poet, actor and singer of Alcoy’s friend, who now revives through the words of actor Joan Massotkleiner and the voice of the singer Gemma Humet, wrapped in both of the sensitivity learned and embedded in verses of poets transformed into perennial songs and punyent word.
