Pinzellades Dalinianes was written in the summer of 2013 at the request of the magnificent trombonist Ximo Vicedo. The spectacularity of the metal instruments is so extraordinary that I decided to write a virtuoso work for the soloist but also very integrated within the ensemble. The quintet takes on a major role throughout the work. It is a solo concert “against” a powerful and very active ensemble. For reasons of color and contrast, I have found in Dalí’s creations my source of inspiration. The surreal visions of his paintings give rise to different interpretations and all kinds of sound combinations.
