MANDATORY PIECE: «THE WITCHER»
Descriptive Poem composed for Wind Orchestra
The Witcher is a programmatic piece that contains a single movement split into fragments that interweave unnoticeably without any interruption. The lack of relation between its episodes mean it becomes the formal principle, distancing it from any defined structure. It thus acquires an independent and stand-alone form, as is typical in Symphonic Poems. Each episode is endowed with an independent thematic exhibition, which aims to accurately reproduce diverse moments and moods experienced by the character, the main characteristic of Programmatic Music.
