Alejandro Román is one of Spain’s most eclectic and versatile composers. He has been influenced by jazz and popular music, and this disc charts many facets of his unique compositional style. The sonically alluring Diégesis incorporates melodic motifs from ancient Greece in a theatrical context. Trois Tableaux Français owes its inspiration to Debussy and Impressionism, whilst Homenaje a Bartók uses a Hungarian scale in Román’s tribute to another of his favourite composers. In its repetitive movement, the suite Zootropías evokes early cinematic devices.
