Text / Lyrics
Author of the Text José Saramago
Title of Poem or TextAos Deuses sem Fiéis
Writing music from a poem by Saramago is undoubtedly stimulating but at the same time it entails a great responsibility. In this composition I tried to ensure that the music does not overlap the poem. Instrumental writing emphasizes the creation of harmonies where the accordion plays a contrasting role with that of the string quartet. The saxophone appears as a melodic counterpoint to the voice. In general, the music intends to evoke an ethereal atmosphere, where time is slow and melancholic.
