Variations on "That to Be Missed"

from by Nahuel Bronzini



This piece explores different sonorities from the 20th century, blended with a more personal search for a harmonic language. The more diatonic, we could say "familiar", sound of the main theme comes out of a guitar piece that I wrote back in 2012, during my first months living in San Francisco. While harmonic and textural planes seem to be creating a color painting, non-functional based music flow, actually, these structures and changes in tension are always evoking a tonal significance. This is, in a way, my homage to the masters of tonality. We would not be here without them. There is no need to mention who they are.
“That to be missed” is, in a way, a reminder that hints the necessity for nostalgia, to embrace those or those things that are important to us and that we long for. It is a call for a more sensitive world. Emotions are the motor of our life, and music happens because of life, not the other way around.
