Program Notes

This work was originally written, based on the initial idea of expansion elements throughout the speech.

In the first movement some of these elements are latent in constant evolution and expansion in all the register. Subsequently, this initial idea gives rise to a small motif that assumes the main center of evolution in all the musical speech. The second movement presents the central motif in a clear manner, associated to the woodwinds, followed by several developments throughout this process.

In the third movement, in spite of the new materials, there are constantly small allusions to the main motif, and the development of the speech culminates in the motif in its original form. This one is followed by a last expansion, until the tutti orchestra appears in a gesture that is reminiscent of the first movement, thus closing the cycle of events and announcing the end of the Work. Before the end appears a full distension that refers to the end of the first movement, but now, in a sudden gesture, the work ends with a tutti fortissimo.
