« LA TORRE DEL ORO»
Gloria Isabel Ramos Triano
Composer and conductor
« Nobody could have imagined that, behind this emblematic andalusian title "La torre del oro" , such an abstract composition would come to life. Composer and conductor Ramos Triano describes her music just as "eclectic", but, the present she has done to the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla with this score, of much more carats we could have ever expected, is an example of the actual moment of musical creation, in a free atonality, with suggestiv percussionist licenses, which quietly remember to the world of typical spanish sounds of Rodrigo and Manuel de Falla"
Ismael G. Cabral, für «El correo de Andalucía”, 25. September 2010
« ... this work connects directly with the approach of almost every other european contemporary composition, but letting recognize discrete winks to the music of Manuel de Falla, like andalusian scales in the left hand of the piano, soft tremoli in the strings, the trumpet sounds with sordino, bells…»
C. Tarín, für ABC Sevilla, 25. September 2010
