https://soundcloud.com/julio-e-quinones-composer/mosaico A mosaic is an artistic work that’s made up of small pieces of colored glass, stones and other material used in combination to create an image or any kind of design. In this piece, I tried to use the same kind of concept, using a persistent rhythmic theme that appears all though out the work, but used in conjunction with other elements inspired by Caribbean rhythms and Puerto Rican folk music, as well as traditional and contemporary harmonic practices. All this said, I conceived the work to be a challenging piece demonstrating technical proficiency and showcasing the clarinet’s rich timbre in all the ensemble’s parts.
