Work introduction

The knowledge that this piece would be premiered at the Italian Chapel and my vivid memories of visiting there a few years ago guided me during the composition of rosewood. Without wishing to somehow create a musical evocation of the place, notions of calm, reflection, open spaces, echoes and resonances permeate the music.

The title refers to the type of wood often used in the construction of the fingerboard of the guitar. It has a distinct aroma and when I smell it I am immediately and vividly reminded of the once close relationship I had with that instrument.
