Paroxismo

"This work shows us the diversity of ways of listening to music, of feeling art..."

Fernando M. Cueto

Paroxismo.

For chamber orchestra

Mexico City, Theater of Arts, June 21, 2019

Paroxysm is a piece that uses a contemporary orchestration where long harmonies and tenutos contrast with sudden interventions of dynamics and agogics,


The initial chord designates the process of the piece that culminates in a Viola Cadenza that progressively returns to an initial presentation of the first chord transformed to end with a great orchestral tutti.
