The Global Music Awards from California has just granted a Silver Medal in the Best Album Category to the disc Sounds of the clarinet. Recorded by internationally acclaimed clarinetist JM Santandreu this Cd includes the work Tango Suite, Op.36a composed by Javier Pérez Garrido. This important American musical contest where competing many renowned musicians from around the world has decided to reward again the creative work of Javier Pérez Garrido, who already won the Gold and Bronze medals in the Composition Category (2014) with his symphonic works Fantasía, Op.14 and Fanfare, Op.50.
Tango Suite is a composition that groups five different tangoes. Through it, we will find nostalgic melodies as well as virtuoso passages. The spirit of tango grows as the rhythmic accents fight each other for breaking the strict molds of this gender or decreases while the pulse turns into a lovely musical line where rubato appears in order to give much more freedom to music. Javier Pérez Garrido premiered this composition in La Noche de los Museos Festival, Cartagena, Spain (2011).
