The Event

Listen to some ‘Menu’:

The music of Pellicer transcends the merely programmatic and explores new sonorities infrequent in band music. This gives it an undeniable originality and great dynamism in the discourse.

Ramon Garcia i Soler Composer and Conductor

Ho avuto modo di ascoltare e di apprezzare le composizioni di Carlos Pellicer nelle quali mostra talento e idee musicali molto interessante.

Lorenzo Pusceddu Composer and Conductor

The music of Carlos catches you, describes perfectly feelings, strength, colors and characters. It perfectly uses the control over the instruments by taking what is required of them at all times. THANKS FOR YOUR MUSIC!

The music composed by Carlos Pellicer denotes wisdom and control of the orchestration for symphonic band, own of the great masters in this specialty.

Roque Baños Composer and Conductor

The emotion and sentiment expressed in Omaira by the Carlos Pellicer constitutes one of the most beautiful and sublime representations, enaltening with his music this sad tragedy, giving him the dignity he deserves.

Pacho Flores International Trumpet Soloist Deutsche Grammophon Artist

The music of Carlos Pellicer is coming directly from the heart. It is full with beautiful emotional melodic and rhythmical intense material in a catchy style of today and orchestrated so beautifully. I simple love it!

Ben Van Dijk Bass Trombonist Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

The music of Carlos Pellicer looks for the infinite beauty from the perfect work polished for the detail and from the huge variety of colours that join the harmony and the orchestration. And all of this because of a firm and regular creative search.

The Idea
It is an original and new initiative: the world ‘premiere in chain’ of a composition for band. The idea is born of the composer himself: ‘For some time now I have been thinking of being able to carry out a project of this kind, to be able to make a chain debut of one of my works. A premiere in each country. Only one premiere in each country. In this way the whole world will have access to it. ‘
The Chain

The first premiere of Menu will be in Spain, of course, on April 27 of this year by the Banda Municipal de Bilbao with the Maestro José Rafael Pascual-Vilaplana. The following releases in other countries may be between April 28 and December 30. Any day! No problem with this! It is to facilitate to the directors. You can include Menu in any concert that you have scheduled during those dates.

Only until December 30. Why? Because the work will come out in the catalog of Molenaar Edition this year. Until that date, December 30, can only be reserved, can not be sold to be able to develop this project ‘premiere in chain.’

About 'Menu'

Level of the work: C.

Total duration: 11:20 approx.

It is a work divided into three movements which are related to the development and ‘tasting’ of a good gastronomic menu. The titles of these movements (L’Apéritif, La spécialité du Chef and ‘American pie’, le grand finale) are related to the content, character and rhythm of each dish prepared for this original menu: a short but intense starter, a main dish with different textures but very consistent, and a good dessert with a lot of flavor and a lot of rhythm.
