Suite Silvestre

PUBLISHED ON MAY 2, 2020 — CATEGORIES: creations

This work was commisioned as the compulsory piece for the 2012 Certame Provincial de Bandas by the Pontevedra provincial government. It was my first attempt at programmatic music, as it depicts 6 different moments of the day at the ancient Fragas do Eume forest, in Galicia.

The piece is conceived for a rather small band: 1 instrument per voice achieves balance, and most of the voices feature many solos. Here you can see a recording that we did in 2014. The people involved are listed under the YouTube video description:
