Description:
To write a concerto for his friend Arno Bornkamp was one of Guillermo Lago’s great wishes. ‘Leyendas’ (Legends) is his gift to his lifelong friend. In 2015 he wrote a smaller piece for alto saxophone and string quartet (or string orchestra) ‘Consecuencias’, also (co-)dedicated to Bornkamp, but ‘Leyendas’ is very obiously a solo concerto where Consecuencias is rather a chamber music work.
The title ‘Leyendas’ refers to the famous ‘Rimas y Leyendas’ by Gustavo Adolfo Becquér (1836 - 1870). In 2016 Lago wrote 5 Rimas for soprano saxophone and choir (a series to be expanded soon) and ‘Leyendas’ is inspired on the atmosphere and mood of these legends narrated by Becquér, although not connected to a specific ‘Leyenda’.
