Program Notes

This is a masterwork for band composed by one of the most honored musicians in Venezuela, Maestro Gonzalo Castellanos Yumar. It is a fantasy, a free form based on eight themes that are overlapped and transformed using different processes like rhythmic augmentation and diminution, melody’s shifting and other methods. The harmony is developed from the note contents in each theme and processed through polytonal techniques.

"Antruejo" is a carnival occurring three days before Lent.

This Venezuelan masterpiece was premiered on September 7, 2014 by the Banda Sinfónica del Estado de São Paulo (BSESP), Brazil, with Rosa Briceño as guest conductor.
