Francisco Guerrero

The music of Francisco Guerrero claims our attention, above all, for its inner strength and for a personal energy that reflects the independent stance maintained by the composer throughout his life. Firmly convinced that art embodies the capacity for strong, organic expression, Guerrero undertook a type of research in which compositional rigour walked hand in hand with the demands of a passionate spirit.

The music of Francisco Guerrero claims our attention, above all, for its inner strength and for a personal energy that reflects the independent stance maintained by the composer throughout his life. Firmly convinced that art embodies the capacity for strong, organic expression, Guerrero undertook a type of research in which compositional rigour walked hand in hand with the demands of a passionate spirit. His was a passion for knowledge, experimentation and exploration of sound to its ultimate consequences. From these stimuli arose the need for profound contact with the various disciplines of knowledge (including mathematics, architecture, physics and computer science, among others), which led him to seek compositional unity on increasingly subtle planes and to consider the sound event in a “global” framework, with a new control over the building blocks of sound.

Equally comfortable with orchestral and chamber, instrumental and vocal music, Guerrero left a small but widely varied catalogue. Our only cause for regret might be the absence of an opera: Morte della Papessa Giovanna - a project Guerrero nurtured throughout his life but never found the opportunity to bring to fruition. His style was clearly defined from the outset. « hide
