Arts > Music and Opera

One of the features which may best define the career of Cuban-Spanish composer Eduardo Morales-Caso is his creative freedom; a cosmopolitan and heterogeneous liberty open to the most varied internal and external influences of cultural and human origin. Winner of prestigious musical awards, notably the First “José Asunción Flores” International Symphonic Music Composition Competition, Morales-Caso has, throughout his already long career, stood out as a master of the chamber repertoire, where he has produced many of his most brilliant scores. Some of these works form part of the program on this compact disc. Written between 2000 and 2009, they are notable for their maturity, especially evident in solo instrumental passages, and an intimate and evocative formal beauty whose style is akin to the Romantic language of Chopin and Debussy with echoes of the grandeur of Liszt at his most emotional and metaphysical.
