Original Composition 2020 Monet's Water Triptych
Inspiration behind the piece Monet's Water Triptych
The creation of this piece was based on two formative experiences in my life: 1) my own performance of Franz Liszt’s Sposalizio and 2) my viewing of Claude Monet’s paintings Water Lilies (Apaganthus) at an exhibition. The theory of how WWI affected Monet’s paintings in addition to my readings of the painting that inspired Liszt’s Sposalizio, led me to do further research into other composers who were similarly inspired by paintings. Many of these works contained criticism to important events of their day and I, in a similar manner wanted to give a statement about our societies’ attitude towards water and climate change by writing a piece that celebrates the theme of water. It is my wish for this piece to add to the conversation through a positive attitude, that we must protect nature. This piece is dedicated to my hometown and to all environmentalists who successfully won a battle agains a foreign mining company that wanted to open a gold mine in my home state of San Carlos.
