Quick Overview

Although very different from the "Tango en skai", this piece has also brought me a certain measure of fame as a composer, and has been recorded dozens of times. It was originally written for guitar, double bass and percussion, following a major operation I underwent in the early 1980s. Its three movements are an explicit portrayal of that very particular period of my life: first the chaotic "India" (before the operation), then the "Largo" (during it) and finally the "Fuoco", in which the unrestrained rhythms depict a veritable incarnation of my return to life (and several guitarists often play this last movement as an independent piece). I can but be grateful for the success of the "Libra Sonatine", a triptych which has familiar sounds for today's youth at the crossroads of this new and changing century. (R.D.)
