Listen to “Espacio Ritual” performed by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France
Espacio Ritual received its Parisian premiere at the Festival Presences.
“A synthesis of ritual and popular African-Dominican music collides in this powerful piece for large orchestra. Expressive textures captured from the musical diversity of this caribbean island (palos, gaga, salves, congos) culminate in the sonic recreation of a Dominican ritual festivity”.
Listen to “Concerto for Violin, Strings and Percussion” performed by Robert Davidovici
The Violin Concerto received its premiere at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center in Miami.
“It celebrates our Dominican folkloric music (Hispanic and African), but this time with a very special sense of gratitude to my alma mater: the Florida International University School of Music. There I had some of my best musical years and started a life time artistic collaboration with maestro Robert Davidovici, who deeply motivated me to compose this piece”.
Listen to “Redescubrimiento: A Dominican in St. Louis” performed by CPSL
Commissioned by Chamber Project St. Louis, for Flute, Bassoon, Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass.
“This piece has an incessant rhythm in triads inspired in the Sarandunga, which accompanies a brief melody composed with dissonant and consonant motives. A sense of flexibility in the work is felt by numerous changes in tempo, motion, silences, cadences and solos, creating a great interaction between the instruments”.
