Nymphéas Noirs

Nymphéas Noirs (2020)

For for french horn, tenor saxophone, bass clarinet, baritone saxophone, contrabass, piano

First performed by Taller de Música Contemporánea Ensemble and conducted by Óscar Musso at the Auditorium of Science Park on 16 June 2019 in Granada, Spain.

The starting point of this work (in English, black water lilies) is found in a letter written in 1886 by Claude Monet. In it, the artist himself conceives his work as “only repetitions of the same motive”. Equally important is the French spectralist music, which acquires a great aesthetic weight of Nymphéas Noirs, developed as a mass that evolves towards diluted melodies that lead back to the repetition and compulsive obsession of a reason that repeats eternally.
