Additional information about Gudari
Gudari (‘warrior’ in vasque language) is a three movement piece composed for Alberto Urretxo, Bilbao Symphony Orchestra’s principal trombone.
The piece introduces three moods of a Gudari who decides to begin a new retrospective journey in his life looking for new horizons: first, The Gudari begins his path captures a feeling of hope for the future and the wish to meet new challenges; in Under the Celestial Firmament, our protagonist faces his own fears and the solitude that reality itself carries with it; finally, in The Eternal New Horizon, the Gudari realizes one never stops learning from life and the challenges within.
