Canciones sobre poemas de Eduardo Hurtado: Globo, Luciérnagas, Faro
Songs on poems by Eduardo Hurtado
female voice (mezzo or soprano) and piano
Premiered in October 1992 at Festival Cervantino, Guanajuato, Mexico by Adriana Díaz de León, mezzo soprano and Francisco Nunez, piano.
I have found setting poetry to music a very enriching and enlighten experience, which always sparks off my imagination into directions I don’t necessarily go towards when I write instrumental music.
From the very first time I heard Eduardo Hurtado reading his poems in Mexico city in the early 90’s, I realised that in his poetry there was an invitation to create a world of sound. So I wrote this song cycle in 92, at a time when I was living in Mexico.
