This concert will be special to me for many reasons.
I am going to entirely present my solo project SUITES, by playing three Suites of different styles of music: a suite for cello solo by Johann-Sebastian Bach, a suite for solo saxophone by Fernando Lerman and the “Suite Mixtur”, a compilation of short original works for baritone saxophone composed by some of the participants at the Composition and Sound Experimentation Workshop of the Barcelona Mixtur Festival 2018.
Although I have plans to write a post about “Suite Mixtur” later, let me tell you that I will premiere two of the five pieces included in this suite: “Quasi uno Specchio” by Isabel Benito and “A Study in Distortion” by Hakki Cengiz Eren (I already premiered the other pieces: “Traç 1” by Daniel Muñoz-Osorio, “Mélancolie 1” by Demián Rudel and “Miniature” by Florent Caron Darras, at Mixtur Festival in April 2018). Furthermore, this will be the first time I play this compilation as a Suite.
I am really excited to play in my hometown: there is no place like home!
