BORDERLINE (Al límite) :
FOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, PIANO SOLOIST AND BATUCADA
In Borderline (Al límite), the composer Ricardo Llorca and pianist Rosa Torres-Pardo propose the incorporation of urban music in contemporary music. The interest in bringing elements of popular culture to concert halls has been a concern expressed in the career of the composer from Alicante living in New York and a professor at The Juilliard School. Moreover, Rosa Torres-Pardo raised, in numerous works,an approach to popular music through dance, poetry and theater to contribute to an greater expression and sense of classical music, bringing a fresh vision with more direct and understandable language aimed at a more diverse audience. Both artists have worked successfully in various projects presented at the Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School (New York) and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Hall.
