Retazos, colores y contrastes

Juan David Hoyos

The creation of this work is based simply on a “rescue and improvement” of musical pieces for chamber and symphonic band groups never released, many of these were inspired by characters that the composer knows or knew, so in some fragments of the work are written the motets of the people to whom they were dedicated at some time. The play has parts that were created today for the sole purpose of creating contrast between fragments The introduction of the work is titled “MARGARITA” and the protagonist is the clarinet in his first bars, he shows the main theme of this fragment, its counter-melodies and harmonies lead the audience to think that they are listening to a kind of “soundtrack” melancholic “that fortunately comforts the viewer with a grandiose major chord at the end of East. The fragment immediately following is a total contrast with what was going Developing previously, changing metrics, tonalities and orchestration, the melodies now they are interpreted by percussion and brass, a change that will awaken all kind of listener, either because he is of the sleepy type or who enjoys with every change of note, chord and melody. “LUX” is the title of the third fragment of the work, which again has a abrupt change, a slow one, which can be defined as an introduction or preparation of the melody that will be the main theme in the party bambuco that will come next and will have as the protagonist of his first bars to the oboe, the culmination of this fragment develops with a tutti from the orchestra. Linked to the above will come the fragment called “PAINFUL”, this one part of the work is developed exclusively with the string section of the orchestra and has no main theme since it is a “dialogue” that the composer has with himself trying to look a consolation, asking questions that never responds, lamenting the why of things and creating a resignation with a sinsabor that founds tares in his heart. The end of the work, called “LIZZ”, the composer decides to “open sales”, develops a melody interpreted by 2 oboes to voices that speaks of happy endings and wonderful things to come, shows all the colors of the orchestra, percussion, woods, bronzes, strings, and combines all the above to carry out 2 modulations without previous warning that prepare an end with a tutti in fortissimo of the whole orchestra including to the main melody ornaments and counter-melodies that generate the Ecstasy of the work and a grand finale.
