Shakespeare's Winks

for
piccolo
(or any other melodic instrument)

These pieces are related to different Shakespeare's characters:

- Puck is a great major character from Midsummer Night's Dream. There are allusions to Shakespeare's lines hidden in the score. As example: "Merry, shrewd and knavish" (the performance indication in Puck's Pranks) is how Shakespeare describes Puck in Midsummer Night's Dream, act 2 scene 1. ("I am that merry wanderer of the night."; "Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite"). I can confess that since 1993 at the latest, and perhaps before, I want to compose something related to Puck.

- Cesario is actually Viola disguised as a man in Twelfth Night. The trap is that she cannot get out of that character that she invented and get trapped in the fiction (but there is a happy end). "I am not what I am." This quote is included in the score of Cesario's Trap.

- Mercutio is an important secondary character in Romeo and Juliet, he is a friend of Romeo who permanently makes puns, word plays. For instance "Dreamers often lie", in the double sense of "not saying the truth" and "being horizontally in bed".

The musical language is decididely tonal. This album, which can be filed under the genre
contemporary classical, offers an accessible avant-garde sound with a transparent "melocentric" approach.
Shakespeare's Winks
(Guiños de Shakespeare)

para
piccolo
(u otro instrumento melódico solo)

Estas piezas están relacionadas a diferentes personajes de William Shakespeare:

- Puck es un grandioso personaje clave de la comedia Sueño de una noche de verano. A veces se traduce su nombre como "Robín" (un duende bueno pero bastante pícaro). Hay alusiones a versos de Shakespeare ocultas en la partitura. Por ejemplo: "Merry, shrewd and knavish" ("Alegre, bribón y travieso", la indicación de carácter de Puck's Pranks) es tal como Shakespeare describe a Puck en Midsummer Night's Dream, acto 2 escena 1: "I am that merry wanderer of the night" (Soy ese alegre andarín de la noche); y "Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite" (Tú eres ese espíritu bribón y travieso). Puedo confesar que, como muy tarde desde 1993, y acaso antes, quiero componer algo relacionado con Puck.

- Cesario es en realidad Viola disfrazada de hombre, en la comedia Twelfth Night (La duodécima noche, o Noche de reyes). La trampa es que no puede salir de ese personaje que ella misma se inventó, y se queda entrampada en esa ficción (pero hay final feliz). "I am not what I am" (No soy lo que soy), esta cita está incluida en la partitura de Cesario's Trap.

- Mercutio es un importante personaje secundario en la tragedia Romeo y Julieta. Es un amigo de Romeo que se la pasa haciendo constantemente juegos de palabras. Por ejemplo "Dreamers often lie", en el doble sentido de estar acostado y mentir. Y todo así.

El lenguaje musical es decididamente tonal. Este álbum, que puede clasificarse en el género clásico contemporáneo, ofrece un sonido moderno accesible mediante una aproximación transparente y "melocéntrica".
