Year of composition
“El Viatge de Kira i Jan” (Kira and Jan’s trip) was written by petition of the project Cantània of the Consorci de l’Auditori i l’Orquestra, The objective of this project is to bring music to children by getting them involved in singing. The piece is conceived for a big children’s choir and an instrumental ensemble of nine players (string quintet, piano, flute, clarinet, and percussion). The singing part is often written as a single voice (unison) in order to make the choir part easier and to make it accessible to everybody with the work and assistance of the school music teachers. The instrumental parts, however, are thought out to be performed by professional musicians.
