Next Concert – Acht Brücken 2019

Excited to take part again in Acht Brücken Festival in Cologne. In this edition I have a premiere of a new piece for trio (Baritone Saxophone, Cello and Percussion) performed in a very special venue: a boat!

I am very thankful to Duoni Liu, curator of the project, to let me take part of such an adventure. My piece “algo sobre el gris” will be performed together with pieces from composers Jonah Haven, Pablo Garretón, Duoni Liu, Sergej Maingardt, Mazyar Kashian, Jakob Lorenz and Hannah Choi. Our great performers are Álvaro Arias (Sax.), Elio Herrera (Vc.) and Ramón Gardena (Perc.). We are all giving a different perspective to the Thema of this year’s festival: the city / Großstadt Polyphonie.

Beca a la Creació Artística ‘Ciutat de Vic’

vic_panoramica

I am very very happy to announce Alba Font Villar and I won the Prize “Beca a la Creació Artística ‘Ciutat de Vic'” with our project “Espai sense títol”.

Vic is the nearest city of my hometown, where I took High School and music studies. There I met Alba, with who I’ve collaborated in some projects like Untitled Shapes. Somehow, in Vic I also discovered I wanted to be a composer; I wrote there my first pieces, which were played by my friends and colleagues from the Music School.

So there are very good news for me to know I will be able to work there again with “Espai sense títol” in 2020. Right now I am willing to take the flight tomorrow and be there, visit kind of fast my family and receive the on Wednesday in Vic’s City hall.

 

Premiere in VANG!

Next Thursday the 28th my piece “intorno a due vermiglie” will be premiered in Madrid (Festival VANG) by Natasha López and Coro de Cámara de Madrid, conducted by Francisco Ríos.

This piece is based on a Madrigal by Monteverdi, under the same name, and it will be played in a concert called “presente pasado presente”, in which the audience will hear contemporary vocal pieces and barroque-renaissance choir music all together.

I would really like to come to Madrid, so go for me and enjoy this amazing concert!

Home for Christmas

Closing the year, waiting for the quietness of my town, I am flying today again to Spain (after this Deutsche Bahn trip hehe). 2018 was intense, REALLY intense! So it’s worthy to take now a break to fly again back with my energy bar full.
