Anatomia de um suspiro
Premiered June 5, 2013
Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa
The fragments that accompany the score are paratextual; they constitute a long epigraph that unfolds temporally. They occupy a transition zone between the music itself and its context, and have the function of alluding to the theme and suggesting keys for its apprehension. They must inform the performer’s work without, however, the interpreter feeling necessary to recite them or dwell on them during the performance.
