Music is a complex subject. How can we understand it fully without studying it professionally? I’m talking about classical music, of course, or as they call it in Latin-American countries, “serious music”. Of course, the more you know, the easier it will be for you to relate to this type of music, particularly to the contemporary brand of it; however, I think that we can communicate better about it and thus achieve a better understanding if we relate to music though the use of dichotomies. I mentioned this in my last blog post, almost a year ago, but I didn’t get to develop the concept. I intend to do so now. Paragraph by paragraph I will endeavor to post regularly until the basic terms and parameters are defined and then I intend to talk about the music of our times.

I am a composer that was born in Mexico City. I came to Los Angeles to Study piano with Mario Feninger and then studied composition with him, too. I compose classical music: choral, symphonic band, wind ensemble, orchestral, chamber and piano music. I have received awards: My first piano concerto was selected to be included in the series Masterpieces of the New Era, I was selected McKnight Visiting Composer by the American Composers Forum in 2019. I have 3 CDs out and I am currently in my Opus 35. My works include 2 piano concertos, 2 oratorios (one to be released soon), art songs, choral works, piano works, a string quartet, a wind trio and many works for the piano. View all posts by admin »
