New Composition: Eliseo Fresquet-Serret, "Meditació"
Hear Me play Meditació by Eliseo Fresquet-Serret
Eliseo Fresquet-Serret is one of my favorite contemporary composers. His music is reminiscent of the greatest Spanish composers of all times and he is contributing some astonishing works for the Classical Guitar Repertoire.
"Meditació", Prayer, is a gorgeous preludes that brings to mind the sobriety of Bach, the colorfulness of Barrios and the melancholy of Torroba. I cannot but reminisce Bach Well Tempered Clavier Prelude 1 and Barrios'Cm Prelude and "an Impressionistic touch" in the style of Vila-Lobos...all in one if that is even possible. Well, Eliseo pulled it off ! He adds some amazing closures to each arpeggio sequence and when you think that the arpeggio will resolve around the tonic, Eliseo takes you one or 2 steps deeper into his soul. This great Spanish composer can take marvelous routes and is constantly surprising the listener and he achieves it without transgressing the listener highest expectations. Eliseo's dissonances and changing accents make the music ever so engaging. I was lucky enough to have several of Eliseo's work dedicated to me: Somnis de Joventuta marvelous work I recorded and teach online the mangore.com pages is but one of several of his works that I intend to promote and premiere on mangore.com.I am honored to be able to play this stunning work by an equally stunning Spanish composer: Eliseo Fresquet-Serret...
