Concerto Grosso is a septet composed especially for tonight's concert. Its title alludes to a musical form typical of baroque music, in which a group of soloists enter into a dialogue throughout the concert, establishing not only a dialogue between the “solo” and the orchestra but also between two groups which establish two distinct sounds, namely the chamber music ensemble and the orchestra. This confrontation between the solo, the chamber and the illusion of a gigantic sound mass that dialogues with the soloists is the source of my inspiration for the piece that will be premiered today.
