Concert in La Ràpita: June 6th, 2021

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!

Women Composers

Some time ago, I found the picture above on the twitter account of the Hartford Women Composers Fest (Connecticut, USA) and it made me think, first, about still existing gender differences in the music world as well as in our society (a fact that I find unacceptable in current times) and that programming music by women composers be normal and …
