La rivière sans socle

José Río-Pareja

Trío Arbós

Arts > Music and Opera

With a solid, cosmopolitan musical training in some of the world’s most outstanding centres (Stanford University, 2004-2007) and a catalogue of works of extraordinary quality, José Río-Pareja, the young maestro from Barcelona, is currently one of the most substantial figures in the panorama of Spanish composers. A musician of exceptional sensitivity and refined language in structural forms which are almost impossible to materialise, Río-Pareja offers on this CD an overview of some of his most recent and brilliant pages. Of particular note for their scale and quality are the work which gives the album its title, ‘La rivière sans socle, a superb composition written in 2009 on commission from Fundació Caixa Catalunya, and the very recent ‘Carácter, from 2010, for bass clarinet, violin, cello and piano, and most especially ‘Entheos, dated 2011 and dedicated to José Miguel Gómez, a vast poem exhaustively, intimately and almost mystically exploring the cello’s sonorous possibilities.
