Carles M. Eroles - El Arbol Gris for Flute, Clarinet, Trombone, Piano, Violin and Cello.
"The title of the piece is taken from a picture by Piet Mondrian. Like the artwork, the instrumentation is very expressive: two woodwind, two brass, and two string instruments, all mixed by a deep, expressive, and some times inexorable, piano. Like the tree, which has three parts, the work refers to the number three: ternary time, three main intervals (second minor, third minor and seventh major), three main sections, a long beginning with three instruments. . . The piece presents a long way between the very low beginning to the very high climax, at the middle of the piece, to walk again to the very low, deep and expressive finale, in a similar way as the opening and closing of life."
