Martínez's inspiration when creating this piece came from a deep previous study of Scarlatti and Soler’s musical score. As in a sonata, the choreographic phrases repeat themselves, altering and evolving as they do so to the tempo of the musical structure. It could be taken as an "exercise in style", just as Balanchine exercised with style in some of his pieces in his day. Every dancer represents a musical instrument of the sonata's orchestral version, performing his or her own choreographic score. The result is a cohesive and harmonious set.
Costumes made by: Carmen Granell
