[Untitled, 2011-12] for string orchestra (young players)
The work, for young string instrument players, was commissioned by conductor Josep Manresa for the Corelli Orchestra (Vila-seca conservatory, Catalonya). It 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 – and extremely serious – players, and to see how they interpret my ideas about composition and improvisation in the most inquisitive and engaged way.
Premiere: 3 June 2012, Torredembarra town hall, Catalonia, Spain
