Three wind band pieces - 2015

wind band +  traditional voices choir
Commissioned by the Municipal Band of Santiago de Compostela. Premiere at October 25th, 2015 and conducted by Miguel Romero Llopis. This work is based on four Galician traditional tunes that shape the three separate movements, all written so that a traditional choir with two voices plays the folk melodies and in the last movement the work culminates with a final ostinato, where the choir shows two very representative melodies.
