After yesterday’s concert with the Plataforma 28 composers, here some final thanks. Most of all to two of the foremost Colombian composers of the day, Jorge Pinzon and Gustavo Parra. Jorge for sharing his thoughts on Colombian composition in our pre-concert talk and for contributing his “Reflejos Sinfonicos” to open the concert. And to Gustavo for going through all the submitted scores and drawing up a shortlist.
Big thanks, too, to the OSNC for getting their teeth into the music of their own composers and for their support of the project.
But most of all, many congratulations and thanks to the participating composers. I hope our Plataforma 28 project will help them on their way, and will help to create a meaningful Colombian repertoire for the 21st century.
