This evening at 19:30, the Spanish chamber ensemble Vertixe Sonora presents in the auditorium of CentroCentro, in Madrid, and within the programme of the sixth edition of the cycle VANG Músicas en vanguardia, a programme formed by four works for instrumental and electronic ensemble by four current Spanish composers.

The concert, titled Another Twist of the Screw, will begin with wq.132 à creux perdu (2017), for prepared and amplified tenor saxophone, by José Luis Torá (Madrid, 1966), and will be followed by (neo)liberal systems #2 “crescendo” (2019), for oboe, saxophone, viola, piano and live electronics, by Alberto Bernal (Madrid, 1978). The concert will end with the world premieres of two pieces composed this very year by two young female composers under the age of thirty: Despertar en llamas, for oboe, saxophone, viola, piano and live electronics, by Esther Calderón (Onteniente, 1996) and Ya no siento el deslizamiento, los roces del tiempo, for flickering lights, two radios, tape, viola and piano, by Pilar Miralles (Almería, 1997).
