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!!

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 …
