Spanish Music for Voice, Violin & Guitar
Secretos Quiero Descubrir - Spanish music for voice, violin & guitar
Secretos Quiero Descubrir, our first recording as a trio, is a very personal project for us, born from our love of Spanish music with its rich and diverse cultural heritage and of these pieces in particular, some of which we have been performing for many years. It has grown from our many personal and musical experiences together, and from our close relationship with contemporary composers – John Barber, Agustín Castilla-Ávila and Eduardo Morales Caso – whose pieces are recorded here for the first time.
Some of the melodies in this recording date as far as back as the 15th century but we still hear and understand the stories and the feelings they express today. We still feel the need to dream, to love, to unlove, and to explore and uncover the secrets of our souls and of our lives. Every day and every night, some women still put their babies to sleep feeling blissful and fulfilled as in Duerme Tesoro, while others sing them lullabies feeling betrayed and hurt as in Aurtxo Txikia or Nani Nani.
As musicians, we seek to reveal the secrets hidden behind the characters and their stories. In doing so, we try to look deep inside ourselves and those close to us – and share with others what we explored in the hope that it may shed some light on our common human experiences and, if possible, bring some comfort and joy. We hope this music helps you, as it has helped us, grow closer to discovering some of the secrets of your soul.
