Romanesco is a Symphonic Poem of an epic narrative depicting the medieval fights between the Christians and Moors. It begins with the plain-chant of the monks, inside the walls of the monastery who are then interrupted by the arrival of the Moors entering the walls disguised as jongleurs, and thereby provoking a battle. The central section is a Adagio Elegiaco, where our hero travels all over the village and laments all the destruction. Relying strongly on the main themes, the last section develops into the glorious final battle. This work is predominantly based around the environment modal and the polyrhythmic characteristics of medieval music. Conducted by the composer with his own band in the Ateneu Vilafranquense International Wind Band Contest, Romanesco achieved the biggest applause and the highest recognition of the public and the international jury.
