Premier 15th February 2020 with Alberto Rosado, piano and the Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM conducted by Massimo Quarta.  It was written for the Spanish pianist Alberto Rosado with whom I have had the pleasure of collaborating on other projects. My intention was to explore his virtuosic abilities and his wide range of expression.
