Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “Surcos a la Tierra” (Grooves to the ground)

    It is a work for youth orchestra that was commissioned by Toccata Foundation in 2016 especially for Rancagua Youth Orchestra. This piece has a pedagogical nature and seeks to bring the young musicians closer to contemporary music and the new forms of writing, textures and harmonies according to the current composition. This work takes as inspiration the song El Arado by Víctor Jara. It is essential to clarify that it is not an orchestration or an arrangement of Victor Jara's song, but that it is merely an inspired work in this beautiful song that alludes to the Chilean worker. Musically, Surcos a la Tierra creates musical lines that will tour the work like the furrows of a plough and for a moment will make a nod to the song of Víctor Jara to get lost again in the textures of his plough.
