World Premiere • Consolati & De Luca • Rodríguez’ In Tenebris
As part of The Juilliard School’s Composition Concert, Iván Enrique Rodríguez’ sonata for flute and piano In Tenebris will be performed by the remarkable Italian duo: Giorgio Consolati one the Flute and Christian De Luca on the Piano. The concert will also include works by Matthew Liu, Marc Migó, Jasper Brey, Zachary Derrick, Robert Volkman and Chen Yihan. The concert will take place in Morse Recital Hall, one of the five main performance spaces in The Juilliard School in Lincoln Center, New York City.
In Tenebris, sonata for flute and piano, is an abstract work that, although it does not attempt to narrate anything in particular in a programmatic way, it carries with it intense allegories and emotional attributes. Having as genesis the reflection of the darkness in a mirror, In Tenebris describes a human painting of emotions, anxieties, doubts, pain, war and fears, but also of passions, longings and hope. Based on a single musical motif, the work sketches an eternal instant in front of the mirror embraced by the nocturnal penumbra, home of so many fears, alcove of the ethereal rest and motherland of dreams.
