Madrid-born Tomás Marco is a multi award-winning and prolific composer whose compact Symphony No 2 is a single ‘Espacio cerrado’ or ‘Closed Space’, expressed using a massive orchestra. As the subtitle ‘Gaia’s Dance’ suggests, the colourful and rhythmic Symphony No 8 borrows elements of dances from different parts of the world. Marco’s Symphony No 9 draws inspiration from the primeval sea spirit ‘Thalassa’, and combines studies in sonority with medieval music sources to create a work which unfolds in a single, extended breath.


Review By Frédéric Cardin,Musique pour tous,September 2012

Tomas Marco (né en 1942) est un compositeur originaire de Madrid. Il a étudié à Darmstadt avec Bruno Maderna, Stockhausen et Ligeti (entre autres). Sa musique, sans être facile, est très communicatrice grâce à une hyper-expressivité sonore qui crée dans certaines pièces un effet de saturation sonore pulsative (les Symphonies nos 2 et 9 par exemple).


Review By Germán Gan Quesada ,Scherzo,May 2012
