Como una luna en el agua (2014)


The title of this piece comes from the seventh chapter of the novel Rayuela (Hopscotch), by the Argentine writer Julio Cortázar: "[…] And there is but one saliva and one flavor of ripe fruit, and I feel you tremble against me like a moon on the water". The idea of reflection suggested by the title plays an essential structural role in organizing several aspects at the macro and micro-levels of the musical form. Several passages of the work are based on the first seven notes of the piano part of Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire.
