Format:Audio CD
Francisco Goya's famous series of prints Los Desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War) were created between 1810 and 1820, though not actually published until 35 years after Goya's death, in 1863. There are 82 prints in all, each highly critical of both Spanish and French rulers during the conflicts between the two countries in the early 19th century, and they are shockingly graphic: realistic depictions of mutilated corpses in the aftermath of battle and the effects of famine, and gross mockeries of the ruling classes and the clergy. They are less high art and more a sort of proto-photojournalism.

Martin Bresnick's Caprichos Enfáticos: Los Desastres de la Guerra, an 8-movement concerto for pianist Lisa Moore and Sō Percussion, begins with, of all things, a farandole/farándula--a popular, jaunty 6/8 chain dance. In live performance, Lisa Moore plays the opening line of the farandúla on xylophone, alone on stage. A percussionist enters behind her and seamlessly takes over the line, and Moore continues to the second line. A second percussionist enters, taking over the first line, and the first percussionist moves to the second line, and Moore moves to the next layer, etc. It's torturous to try and describe the effect in words, especially since it's been three years since I saw it live at the 2008 Canberra International Music Festival in Australia, but it really does look and feel like a musical chain dance. It's also just really cool to watch Lisa Moore play toms.

Eventually, of course, she does end up at the piano. Farándula De Charlatanes, No Saben El Camino (Farandole Of Charlatans - They Don't Know The Way) alternates between harsh dissonance and strange timbres (flexatone!) and a kind of offbeat march.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very dramatic new work evokes its inspiration November 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The artwork of Francisco Goya is bold, stark and frequently very sombre. The artist had to live through the atrocities of the nineteenth century and Napoleonic conquest and, like Picasso's "Guernica". his art is often a reflection of the brutality of wartimes. Goya's sketchbook, "Los Desastres de la Guerra" (the Disasters of War)" provides the imagery that composer Martin Bresnick used for this new work for piano and percussion and the resulting music is dramatic, bold and a bit disturbing, as is the source material. Each of the movements to this eight movement concerto, Caprichos Enfaticos (Emphatic Capriccios)" is titled after one of the sketches in the Goya collection. Bresnick uses the provincial Spanish dance, the farandole, as the form for six of the movements. The farandole is typically in 6/8 meter and ranges in tempo from an accented moderato to a highly propulsive allegro. As conceived by Bresnick, this work is intended to be performed in a mutli-media way, with projections of sketches by Johanna Bresnick, the composer's wife, inspired by the Goya originals. I imagine that seeing the visuals projected during performance helps the symbolism and imagery intended by the music, however, Bresnick's score stands very well on its own as a very powerful listening experience. The music is wonderfully written to run a range of emotion from the darkly mysterious (as in mvt. 7 "Strange Devotion") to the violent and chaotic (as in mvt. 2 "Farandole of the charlatans - they don't know the way").

Cantaloupe Music has done it again. This CD label, created by the founders of the 'Bang on a Can' series that was such a presence and center of contemporary classical and experimental music in the 20th Century, doesn't disappoint. It challenges for sure, yet I think that our ears, much like that of our ancestors hearing Beethoven, Bach or Brahms for the first time, have evolved over time as well. Caprichos Enfaticos, composed by Martin Bresnick, and performed by pianist Lisa Moore and percussion quartet So Percussion, is a journey through the darkness of Goyas artwork - specifically his book of etchings that are Los Destastres de la Guerra, The Disasters of War. In more than 80 plates/etchings Goya captures the horror of war informed by Spain's War of Independence against Napoleon's forces.

According to art currator Peter Blum, "The original set of 85 etchings was most likely completed by Goya between 1810 and 1820, and entitled Fatales consequencias de la sangrienta guerra en España con Buonaparte. Y otros caprichos enfáticos. (Fatal consequences of Spain's bloody war with Buonaparte. And other emphatic caprices). The set of proofs was bound and given to his friend Juan Agustín Ceán Bermúdez to review, and is currently located in the British Museum. The prints were not published in Goya's lifetime. In 1863, the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando published the first edition of 80 etchings as Los Desastres de la Guerra, bound as a book."

Ironically, Goya was likely deaf by the time he completed these etchings, yet the testiment to his work is made in this powerfully dark, introspective musical work of Martin Bresnick.
