Sinfonía Córdoba

Córdoba Symphony

COMMISSIONED BY THE
SGAE FOUNDATION,
ON SPECIAL REQUEST OF
THE CÓRDOBA ORCHESTRA
    1. Paseo a la Mezquita  (Promenade to the Mezquita)
      In this movement, the composer offers a symbolic journey into the period in which, like a vision, appears impressively the mixture of races and cultures who forged and enriched this city. A voice sounding from far, accompanied by a guitar, is only a small stop along the way throughout centuries which still today defines and identifies us in the world.
    2. Nocturno en la ribera (Nocturne at the Riverside)
      The second movement exposes the delight and fascination inspired by this scenery of the city, which is more than a silhouette – or an illuminated excerpt in the dark -, of the river Guadalquivir on his way through Córdoba.
    3. Los patios en el mes de mayo (The „patios“ in the Month of May)
      This movement describes the incomparable charm, the fantasy, and creativity – unique in the world – of “The backyards in the month of May”. Without any doubt, extraordinary temples wherein every spring explode jubilant the joy of life, which begins to bloom.
