Sobre los Otros (About the Others)

2013

Chamber ensemble (Fl, Cl, Ob, Vln, Vc, Pn, Perc)

Premiered by Mizzou New Music Ensemble, check this link.

Closely related to “About Oneself” this piece is second part of a main idea idea. This movement is then the counterpart, where I took music from others to create my own. I exist because they exist and they exist through me, might be a simple summary of this piece. Music by Jolivet, Messiaen, Debussy, Cage, and Druckman passed through my filter. Should you recognize them? I don’t know. Are they present? Absolutely! Citations in classical music is a huge topic, Berio’s Symphony is a master piece. Recently I listen to Cuban Leo Brouwer fourth String quartet and got really excited when I discovered Mozart and Stravinsky in it. Sometime we all need a little bit of help from the past.
