The RTVE Symphony Orchestra premieres “Enjambres”, by Nuria Núñez Hierro, winner of the XXXIX Reina Sofia Prize in Music Composition
Last Friday, October 14th, we attended the annual awarding of the Reina Sofia Prize in Music Composition. The RTVE Symphony Orchestra premiered “Enjambres”, by Nuria Núñez Hierro, winner of the XXXIX edition.
This work of timbric exploration, evoking and hinting at very clear poetic images, represents, in the composer’s words, “a first approach to the poetics of the swarm, understood as a superorganism integrated by individual entities that cooperate with each other in search of collective survival”.
Under the baton of Pablo González, recognized as one of the most versatile and passionate conductors of his generation, the work premiered at the Teatro Monumental, in Madrid, and was broadcast on La 2 of the Spanish Television. As every year, Her Majesty Queen Sofia and the president of the Ferrer-Salat Music Foundation, Sergi Ferrer-Salat, attended the event to present this prestigious award worth €100,000, the biggest cash prize in Europe.
