Adagio Lamentoso

 

This definitely is one of my most emotional works, specially because I was paying a tribute to my favorite composer: Gustav Mahler.

Mahler’s symphonies always had a strong impact on me, the slow movements of his symphonies are, in my opinion, of the most beautiful and touching works in music history.

With this work I wanted to evoke the musical atmosphere created by Mahler in those slow movements, particularly in terms of harmonies and orchestation, but at the same time, keeping a style of my own.
It’s was a complex process resulting in a work that is divided in three sections in a variation of the sonata form, with an elaborated orchestration where the many divisi on the strings carry weight to the piece.
