Granitio y Arco Iris (1999)
Concertino da cámera para bandoneón y nueve instumentos
’Granite and Rainbow’ is an expression, which the author Virginia Woolf has used about what she wanted to capture in her novels.
I have chosen this surprising juxtaposition of two wellknown and natural and separately fascinating phenomenons as the title of my concertino, not because the music has much ideal resemblance with Virginia Woolf’s universe, but because of the many references - for instance of musical nature - which this broad metaphor invites to. Particularly two of those inspired me in my musical ideas during my work: The tangible hard and inviolable (the stone) and the intangible and refracted (the light) - the objectivity of the structure and the spectre of nuances of the sensation.
