Sotelo: New work at the Festival del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino
On 7 June the Contempoartensemble celebrates its 20th anniversary during the Festival del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. For this occasion Mauricio Sotelo has written Cripta – Música para Manuel de Falla for ensemble and electronics.
“Several years ago, my friend Mauro Ceccanti prompted
me to write a homage to Manuel de Falla. This work is dedicated to Ceccanti and
his family, also marking the 20th anniversary of the Contempoartensemble.
It is written for instruments grouped in three “choruses” (I: flute, harp, bass clarinet – II: violin, viola, cello, guitar – III: percussion, piano, contrabass and electronics).” Mauricio Sotelo
