Nocturno for clarinet, violin, cello and piano
written for Kommas Ensemble
commissioned by Festival Mixtur
Victor Ibarra’s style draws on the most varied resources that outline a genuine language. Every part is immersed in micro-tonality, with a precise harmonic structure that becomes, many times intertwined and obsessive. Accented by the rhythmic energy that becomes an essential component of his speech or use of instrumental virtuosity, as a tool to create spaces and dimensions. The influence of the French-spectralism helps him to work with a coloristic and timbral intention, although not exclusively, and a dialogue interdisciplinary which, usually set with the plastic arts, prints a personal mark on his work that is approached from clarity, in compositional instincts and ideals.
