I came across a wonderful project that Spanish virtuosa Andrea González Caballero has been immersed in recently. Proyecto Identidade is a project centered around women from diverse artistic and cultural backgrounds, united to create new works. Proyecto Identidade was founded by Andrea, flutist Amalia Tortajada, and Celia Ruiz Artacho as the producer. The project is premiering four new projects by internationally acclaimed composers, like Clarice Assad, Elisenda Fábregas, Johanny Navarro, among a total of eleven women. And, this week, Andrea and flutist, Amalia Tortajada Zanón, premiered a piece by Clarice Assad titled Triptych.
Besides the playing which is always world class when Andrea is involved, Clarice Assad’s new piece is a wonderful and serious contribution to the flute and guitar repertoire. Triptych is composed in three movements, I. Spirals, II. A Quiet Place, III. Rio, 1991. Flanked by a talented team of videographers, a stellar producer, and designers, the project so far has produced real and important new music for the world.
