REVIEWS

“Three Tales needs, first of all, a strict and complex coordination of its different components, something that Nacho de Paz carried out with the full rigor and implication that characterize his work, in a new demonstration of an exemplary trajectory, characterized by a special commitment to contemporary creation. Not only did he ensure a precise synchronization of the projections with the musical course, something very complex in a work of this nature, but he also allowed the conjunction of electroacoustics with the voices of the wonderful Synergy Vocals ensemble, a true specialist in this repertoire, and with the peculiar instrumental device (string quartet, percussion and two pianos), shaping an especially implacable sound decline. Although the Spanish premiere of Three Tales was delayed, as the work was composed in 2002,  the result of the co-production between Teatro Real and Naves del Español was absolutely necessary.”
