Consolación / Consolation

For French Horn and Piano

Download score


Consolación (Consolation) was born from a request by the duo formed by Miriam Gómez Morán and Javier Bonet to be part of a CD with works composed for them by various Spanish composers.
Composed between the months of June and July 2018, it is a piece in a single movement in which a series of strongly contrasting sections alternate, intended to highlight the multiple resources of the French horn-piano duo, ranging from lyrical to the violent, going through the rhythmic and through passages of an openly scherzante character. In the central part, as well as in the closing section, there is a fleeting quote from a fragment of Franz Liszt's Consolation No. 2, first in a minor mode and finally in its original form in B major.

A work of great difficulty, in keeping with the technical capabilities of the performers, Consolación was premiered at the Palau de la Música in Valencia on March 27, 2019 by Miriam Gómez Morán and Javier Bonet, to whom it is dedicated.
In June 2021, the IBS Classical label published the CD "New Paths", which includes the recording of ConsolaciĆ³n, performed by its dedicates along with the other works commissioned for this project.
