Program Notes

José Miguel Fayos Jordan (b. 1980) was the winner of different composition prizes both for band symphonies and contemporary music for ensembles, including taking Second Prize at the SGAE Young Creators. The work Tribal Elements (2013) takes materials from tribal music from around the world, but mainly focused on Africa and New Zealand. Frenetic rhythms are combined with complex harmonic procedures to delve into the sound resources of the music band.

The score was commissioned and premiered by the Pinto Municipal Band, conducted by José R. Pascual-Vilaplana, at the National Music Auditorium in Madrid in June 2013.
