GLOSA SOBRE UM TEMA DE TERESA (1997) – Guitar
This piece marks the beginning of the post-modernist phase. The metric complexity is disguised by the rhythm simplicity. I wrote it after listening to a children song by my wife (Teresa). The memories in this theme –notes, rythms, intervals, general environment, generated a modal song with variations without an explicit theme. The original song is stylized to a point that it will not be easily recognised in the final work. This work is at a Music School level of the 4th, 5th degree, and it was composed for the student’s final examination, of the Conservatório D. Dinis - Odivelas, as an obligatory piece.
