Esbozos fugaces by Kenichi Ikuno Sekiguchi – Saxophone/ Xavier Larsson Live recording September 2020

English/ Program notes

“Esbozos fugaces”, roughly translated as “Fleeting Sketches”, was written between August and September of 2019 as a commission from the Second International Saxophone Festival of Zacatecas “Saxofonissimo” for the First Panamerican Saxophone Competition “Roberto Benítez”. The piece is made up of many brief vignettes with contrasting moods going from solemnity to exuberance. The title alludes to the fragmentary nature of the different motifs that make up the piece. The motifs themselves reference many sources that come from popular music (such as Mexican indigenous music and Latin American rhythms) as well as from concert music (like Stravinsky’s “Three Pieces” for solo clarinet and Bartok’s “Sonata” for solo violin).

Español/ Notas al programa

“Esbozos fugaces” fue escrita entre agosto y septiembre del 2019 por encargo del Segundo Festival Internacional de Saxofones de Zacatecas “Saxofonissimo” para el Primer Concurso Panamericano de Saxofón “Roberto Benítez”. La obra está conformada de varias viñetas breves con estados anímicos contrastantes que van de la solemnidad a la exuberancia. El título alude a la naturaleza fragmentada de los distintos motivos musicales que componen la pieza. Estos motivos hacen referencia a varias fuentes tanto populares (como los llamados rituales indígenas mexicanos y los ritmos tradicionales latinoamericanos) como a fuentes de música de concierto (como a las “Tres piezas” para clarinete solo de Igor Stravinsky y la “Sonata” para violín solo de Béla Bartók).
