[Untitled, 2011-12] for string orchestra
This work for youth string orchestra was commissioned by conductor Josep Manresa for the Corelli Orchestra (Vila-seca conservatory, Catalonya). This is a “didactic” composition, aimed to introduce 20th century instrumental techniques and improvisation for young musicians (ages 12-15). I had the amazing opportunity to work with these young musicians and to see how they interpret my ideas regarding composition and improvisation in the most inquisitive and engaged way.
Premiere: 3 June 2012, Torredembarra town hall, Catalonia, Spain
