Repertoire

KAREL HUSA: Smetana fanfare (1984) 4 '
ANDRÉS VALERO-CASTELLS: Cardiofonía (2010) 20 '
MANUEL DE FALLA: El amor brujo (Love by witchcraft) (1915) 24 '

Witchcraft and mystery, gypsies muttering spells, dances around the fire. El amor brujo is a story of passion that crosses the frontier of the afterlife, a ballet-pantomime starring a young couple, Candelas and Carmelo, and a former lover of the girl who manifests herself in the form of a ghost and torment. Spells, sorcery and traditional Andalusian music form a very special attraction to this work. The "Ritual Dance of Fire" or "Song of Fatuous Fire" have become icons of twentieth-century music.

When we are in love, the heart speeds up, the beats betray us. Andrés Valero-Castells proposes to Caridiofonía a sound experience from the rhythm of this organ, in the first and third movements literally. The second, more poetic, starts from a quote by García Lorca, and the last closes the work with a theme by rock musician Luis Campuzano "Sherpa". The concert is completed with Smetana fanfare, by Karel Husa, on the centenary of the birth of this Czech composer.
