Notes

    Todo Mezclado (Everthing mixed)
    Commissioned by Radio France for the Philharmonics Orchestra, Todo Mezclado is a cycle
    of 5 songs for soprano and orchestra, based on the poem Song 8 from the Cuban poet
    Nicolas Guíllen.
    This is my first work where traditional music connects with my personal techniques. In Todo
    Mezclado, it is the world of the Traditional Rumbas Cubanas (Yuambú, Guaguanco and
    Columbia) that is explored, a diverse and complex model of musicals forms and structures,
    along with the characteristics of Nicolas Guillen’s text. After listening and analyzing, I extract
    some concepts from the language of rumbas, such as harmonies, melodies, textures,
    orchestrations, or simply instrumentation, all elements that come out and invade my musical
    universe.
    In some same, this idea is also the central concept of the text – Song 8. In his poem, Nicolas
    Guillén talks about « mestisage », to be together, mixed (todo Mezclado - everything
    together).
