Year of composition
In 2011 I started a series of compositions for different instruments which I named Cantiga. I try to evoke songs from the past from my native land Galicia. They are songs of Galicians; songs of foreigners; they express loneliness, hope, tenderness, love or abandonment… but they are always Songs!
Cantiga, for melodic instrument and piano (2011)
Cantiga 2, for violin and piano (2012)
Cantiga-Filipense, for solo piano (2012)
Cantiga IV, for French horn or saxophone and piano (2013)
Cantar Xemendo – Cantiga 5 (Sing Moaning – Cantiga 5), for double bass or violoncello (2013)
This work is inspired by one of the poems in the book Cantares Gallegos (Castellanos de Castilla) by the Galician writer Rosalía de Castro.
