Marc Rosen brings an individualistic sense of style to his poetry. With a no-holds-barred approach, he draws his reader in for a fresh perspective on life, whether he’s ranting at the... More > government or fighting for the rights of the disabled. Rosen digs beneath the labels we affix equally to people and objects to reveal the nature we often miss.

Dado que en ese año de 2009 coincidía la efemérides del centenario del fallecimiento de Isaac Albéniz, decidimos realizar un homenaje al compositor de Camprodón. Quizá su obra más importante y representativa sea su suite para piano “Iberia”, la cual hemos caricaturizado en referencia a las líneas aéreas españolas. Todo el material temático surge de cada una de las piezas de la “Iberia”, aunque se presenta reelaborado en forma de pequeñas miniaturas o “perlas”, donde los efectos realizados por la bandurria y la guitarra aportan su especial tímbrica contrastando con la flauta, el violín y el violoncello. El humor, ese aspecto casi desconocido en la música, es el centro de esta obra realizada con todo el respeto y admiración hacia la “Iberia” y su autor, Albéniz, enfocada desde una óptica “satieniana”.< Less
