This is first monographic album from Tritó devoted to the music of composer Jesús Rueda (1961). The composer from Madrid won the 2004 National Music Prize from the Ministry of Culture in recognition of the overall quality of his music, with special mention being made of his recently premiered symphonic and chamber works.
Featuring the 2004 Spanish national music prize winner, Jesús Rueda, this sensationally expressive album showcases his first and second symphonies as well as "Viaje imaginario". Skirting the edge of tonality and outpouring with vivid orchestral color and textural command, Rueda converses with the underbelly of the imagination, calling up distinctive and lasting imagery. While his language ranges from explosive to delicate, from start to finish, the album is thoroughly dynamic- his approach is daring and assured yet there is certainly no lack of nuance and care taken with these giagantic works. A brilliant, noteworthy contemporary orchestral album.
