When I was studying Journalism at the Universidad Católica de Chile, two of my classmates and friends were amateur musicians —Carmen Figueroa, a soprano, and Iván Valenzuela, a guitarist, tenor and composer himself—. As the three of us liked 'Altazor' by Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro, it came to me the idea of composing a piece with it. I chose the 'Canto VII' which is made of apparently meaningless, beautiful (euphonic) words. The work finally took the form of three movements: Nervioso; Intermezzo grazioso and Contemplativo, and it's written, of course, for soprano, guitar and piano but both the pianist and guitarist are asked to sing in the last bars of the Intermezzo. Although it may seem complex at the first sight, it is not a difficult work, at least technically speaking. I gave this 'Canto VII' to Carmen for her birthday and we made few rehearsals with Iván, but we never came to play it completely. The three movements are in the same file. I gave a little rest between them, so just wait some seconds. (For midi playing reasons I put cue notes in the parts where the singer makes long portamenti.)
