Year of composition
“Somnis” (Dreams) for bassoon and piano was written in 1996 after my first journey to New York, a wonderful city characterized by its cultural diversity, which produces a great variety of sensations that are perceived step by step, in every one of its streets. This work is an allegory of the American culture and of the rich variety of rhythms and melodies, which mix and merge together to become the true American identity. In other words, the mixture of cultures, together with the respect for the American identity, as expressed ultimately in the American national anthem, is present throughout the entire work in different guises.
