Product Details

An exciting piece for clarinet quartet and wind band, commissioned by Barcelona Clarinet Players. They commissioned this piece with the hope that the number 4 was used somehow in the creative process. It is then when a wordplay came about using the famous piece The Four Seasons by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi who wrote this group of four concertos for violin and strings in 1721. Unlike Vivaldi’s inspiration, Rubén used the fact that in countries like his, seasons do not happen. However, a person living in a tropical country like Colombia, can experience a variety of weathers depending on the place this person is in. In that way, an individual in Colombia can feel the intense heat in many places in the Caribbean or in the Pacific coasts, the spring-like weather in places like the Santa Elena region in Antioquia, or the extreme cold and perennial snow in mountains like Nevado del Ruiz or Nevado del Tolima. In a similar way, the main themes in this piece travel throughout different colors, harmonies, rhythms, and textures that show the variety of climates people can feel in a diverse country such as Colombia.
