  • About the work

    The so-called Suite No. 1 Antigua by Leo Brouwer was written between the end of 1954 and the first months of 1955. It is one of the first works that Brouwer undertook with greater seriousness and in which some intonation and rhythmic turns are still very vaguely appreciated that later they will characterize their music

    "The old suite was a suite in the baroque style, with sarabanda, allemanda, well I'm not sure if they were real sarabandas or allemandas, I only know that he set a serious and difficult goal, and he solved it." (1)

    Isabelle Hernández, Leo Brouwer (Editora Musical de Cuba, 2000)
