La Alborada de la Esperanza (The Dawn of Hope)

Duration: 4 minutes

The inspiration for this composition is the journey from darkness to light that happens when someone faces a challenging situation and is able to turn around and focus on a more positive future to come. Even though there is some struggle and melancholy in this journey, it gets transformed into hope. The result is a surprisingly luminous composition. It's a very tonal and lyrical and it is dedicated to French cellist Sébastien Hurtaud. The piano and cello version was premiered by Sébastien Hurtaud and Pamela Hurtado as part of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11th, 2018. The version for cello and string orchestra was premiered during the World Youth Days in Panama on January 24th, 2019.

Princesa de Hadas (Fairy Tale Princess)

Duration: 3-4 minutes

Princesa de Hadas was commissioned by Argentine poet Patricio Méndez in 1996. The orchestral version was created for Şefika Kutluer, who has championed it around the world. The title of this piece refers to a verse from a poem by Méndez, where he describes his beloved as a “fairy tale princess.” The musical material is deliberately simple, tonal, and lyrical, in an attempt to evoke the innocence and romanticism of the world created by the poet for his fairy tale princess. 

The piece consists of alternating sections in minor and major modes. The former more nostalgic and evocative of romantic longing, the latter happier and playful. In the minor sections, the ¾ meter is offset just a touch, with melodic and harmonic ideas frequently coming in on the off-beat, giving the piece a rhythmic rocking quality. The melody in these sections is made out of small motives that seem almost hesitant. The trills in the flute help to paint the magical, almost mysterious setting. In the major sections, the rhythm is regular and steady in the background, which allows the melody to be more expansive, lyrical and romantic.

Set me as a seal upon thine heart

(Grábame como un sello en tu corazón)

Duration: 6 minutes

 

Originally written for organ, French horn and baritone, the piece is based on a biblical text from King Solomon’s “Song of Songs”, and was written on occasion of a wedding. The musical inspiration for the composition came from Mendelssohn’s choral piece, “Verleih uns Frieden”, and from the magnificent sound of the pipe organ in Trinity Church in Boston, which was eventually used for the premiere of this piece.
