My Latest Recordings in 2020

In 2020, I did some home recordings, especially during my lockdown because of the covid-19. If you remember, I created a playlist on my Soundcloud account with all those recordings last spring.

Despite, I decide to close this year with some professional recordings and, so, the 23rd of December 2020 I met Antonio Velasco at his studio INS Records to record some works that I was recently played in a concert in Reus (Catalonia).

I premiered DREAMLOVER by Luxembourgish composer, Albena Petrovic-Vratchanska, at the Baritone Institute held during the Andorra Sax-Fest in April 2017. After having played it later some times (Catalonia, Portugal, Luxembourg, etc.) and having shaped it, by adding and retouching some things, I though that then was the moment to record it and to present it in my final version.

I have played the SUITE n. 4 for cello solo by Johann-Sebastian Bach in some concerts since 2017. I tried it because I think that it is the more suitable for the baritone saxophone (it is ideal for a melodic instrument because it only has a few chords). After many years of study and maturity and realizing that to play this transcendental music is a true challenge, here is now my humble version.

Have a happy and healthy 2021!!

SUITES. A tribute to Bach’s cello suites (ENG)

Cover design by Jesús Llungueras “SUITES. A tribute to Bach’s Cello Suites” is the result of a period of six years (2017-2023) taking this music to the stage. I thought that this recording would also be the best way to pay tribute to Johann-Sebastian Bach and his solo cello Suites. Although during my solo career I have been focused on …

This Is Not A Fad!

Music should not always produce a calming effect on us. Sometimes, it must shake and provoke in order to activate our senses and mind. With this in mind, composer and sound artist Joan Bagés i Rubí and I created Morphosis Duo for a concert for the Associació Catalana de Compositors Actuals (Current Catalan Composers Association) in Barcelona in 2016. There, …
