My Music

Commissioned by Ida Rubinstein to create "a ballet of a Spanish character." An ostinato in C major and an obsessive melody that maintains a rhythm and tempo that never changes, it is constantly repeated, varying the elements of orchestration that produce a crescendo. Today it is one of the most performed musical works in the world.

Solo tenor or sopranino saxophone and 6 instruments. It could be called a work of "Imaginary Jazz", very well structured with very inventive rhythms, where the idea of ​​improvisation is fused with the techniques of repetition and manipulation. It begins with a familiar jazz combo, before the rest of the instruments emerge, covering each other's melodies and creating a highly charged atmosphere.
