Héctor Parra in Strasbourg and Berlin
Under the direction of Pascal Rophé – debuting as musical director of the Orchestre Philarmonique de Liège – this 7 October at 8pm at the Palais des Fêtes the Festival Musica de Strasbourg closes with concert featuring works by Héctor Parra, Stockhausen and Schöllhorn.
Parra, a young Catalan composer whose works are published by the Tritó, was commissioned to write a piece for the festival. The result is Karst - Chroma II, according to the festival organizers, 'an exploration of geo-harmonic strata, in which homogeneous matter is dissolved by infiltrations in the form of instrumental stridencies'.
In other news, this 25 November the Akademie der Künste (Academy of Arts) in Berlin will be the scene of the world premiere of String Trio or Nouvelle Pièce pour trio à cordes et dispositif électronique by Héctor Parra (Barcelona 1976), performed by Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin.
Publication of two orchestra scores by José María Sánchez-Verdú
Tritó announces the publication of Abyad-Kamoon and Istikhbar, the final two parts of Kitab Al-Alwan (Book of Colours) by the young composer José M. Sánchez Verdú (Algeciras, 1968), winner of the 2003 Spanish National Music Prize and one of Spain's most internationally prestigious contemporary composers.
Tritó, in conjunction with the regional government of Andalusia, also published the two first scores from this series, Taqsim and Ahmar-Aswad. Both were premiered in 2005.
Tritó has two CDs featuring music by this composer: Arquitecturas de la ausencia and Música de cámara actual, with works by other contemporary composers.
