Mythology of the Waters

SKU: 3E35

This Sonata is an imaginary walk through the mythical Amazon of Alejo Carpentier's Los pasos perdidos, the lake of the Mayas and so many waterfalls and enormous waterfalls: Tequendama, Iguazú, El Ángel.... The cascades of sounds that characterise my music since Elogio de la danza (1964) or Per suonare a due (1972) have nothing to do with this vision of the waters; I have never liked to imitate nature in sound - inimitable in itself - but the analogies are the choice of the public, if they find them.
