Item Number: CN.17520

Based on material from the first movement of Daughtrey's Concerto for Vibraphone, this piece is filled with beautiful and memorable melodies.

Encantada is based on harmonic material from the first movement of my Concerto for Vibraphone. The title (meaning "enchanted") is derived from the poem La Luz Encantada ("Enchanted Light") by Pablo Neruda, also used for the second movement of the vibraphone concerto. Ode to Enchanted Light by Pablo Neruda Under the trees light has dropped from the top of the sky, light like a green latticework of branches, shining on every leaf, drifting down like clean white sand. A cicada sends its sawing song high into the empty air. The world is a glass overflowing with water. While the piece is harmonically very chromatic, it is filled with beautiful, memorable melodies that attempt to capture the wonder of this poignant poem. The slow & rubato nature of Encantada is a very different representation of the poem than the vibe concerto, which is very bright & sparkling.
