They will celebrate a royal composer

The program will include five works: A Dream. – Lancelot’s Land, Akasha, Regiomontano Universal, Life, Death and Resurrection and Centzontlatole Cen Cenmanca, in world premiere.
Originally from Monterrey, Martínez Leal completed his studies in architecture, but decided to orient himself fully towards music. In 1970 he began his formal musical studies at the UANL School of Music (today Faculty of Music), where he later obtained his Bachelor of Music with orientation in composition. He was a founding student of the Superior School of Music and Dance of Monterrey (September, 1977) where he studied composition, analysis and ethnomusicology.
He studied composition and electroacoustic music in Victoria, Canada; She earned her Ph.D. in composition from the University of Manchester in 2005. In 1978 he was the first composer from Monterrey to perform a concert in the state of Nuevo León dedicated entirely to electroacoustic music.
He founded in 1990 the Electroacoustic Music Laboratory of the Faculty of Music of the UANL, institution of which he is the holder. His important role as a teacher has led him to guide several generations of young composers, through various academic tasks that include teaching, evaluation and administration.
Martínez Leal said he was grateful because OSUANL has always been linked to his career and the dissemination of his music.
Without fear of being wrong, I am the royal composer whom this orchestra has performed the most. I am grateful that Maestro Diazmuñoz has a great virtue that is at the same time a great defect: he is in love with Mexican music, where he can and also where he cannot, he does everything possible to spread the music of Mexican composers, on this occasion mine ” .
Specifically about the work that will be premiered, the composer highlighted that it is a piece he wrote in 1989 and was 33 years waiting for its premiere. Centzontlatole Cen Cenmanca It is a Nahuatl text and has a large orchestration, as well as a choir.
On this occasion there will be the participation of the UANL School of Music Choir, directed by Maestro John David Flowers.
“(The title) means in our Spanish the eternal perpetuity of the one with the 400 songs. For the Nahuatl, saying 400 is like the thousand of the Spanish, something indeterminate to say many. In this case there are many voices and dense textures are created in which you do not distinguish any melody, but what is perceived is a texture, that is the intention, that represents those many songs, ”he explained.
The tribute concert was held on October 6 at the University Theater.
