“Rapsodia Bocairentina” is a tribute to the melodies of a folklore dance tradition from Bocairent (Spain), my birth place. For generations these melodies are played by a duet of “Dulzaina” and “Tabal” (an archaic double reed traditional instrument and a wooden traditional drum).
The work is written in a post-romantic style, orchestrating the monodic melodies and making them construct a small story. It is a game of tradition clashes, the Classical Orchestal world with it’s glamour and popmposity towards the apparent simplicity of traditional folklore.
