LORENZO PALOMO (b.1938): Arabescos for Violin and Orchestra, Caribiana, Humoresca for Double Bass and Orchestra.
Catalogue Number: 04T008
Description: These three recent works again reveal the vivid themes and colors of Palomo’s music and the richness of his orchestration. Arabescos evokes Spain’s Moorish past in episodes linked together with rhapsodic freedom and fluidity, while Humoresca features the double bass as its protagonist in writing as witty as it is virtuosic. The extended choreographic poem Caribiana is sensuously atmospheric and has a wealth of exuberant rhythms and melodies. Alexandre Da Costa (violin), Joaquín Clemente (double bass), Castile and León Symphony Orchestra; Jesús López Cobos.
