Na Floresta

Nacho Duato

Na Floresta a magnificent triptych praising the beauty of the Amazonian rain forest, draws the very essence of its splendour from folklore. A passionate energy circulates within this work made up of sequences full of both substance and fluidity. Its success at its 1990 premiere was phenomenal. A plotless work to Villa-Lobos music intended to communicate an intimacy and a feeling for nature that is greater than our contact with other beings. "Nacho Duato has that rare quality that consists of being able to express things through the voices of simplicity, restraint and circumspection when it comes to expressing emotion".
