“PRIMAVERA ROTA” for Classical Guitar

A work for solo guitar inspired by two similar stories. The first one is Benedetti’s novel “Primavera con una esquina rota”, where the author portraits the effects of political ideas and situations on personal relationships. Themes such as dictatorship, exodus and imprisonment are presented in the book. The second one is the life of Nancy Ospina, a schoolteacher in Colombia whose life story shares many of the themes with the novel. The present work “Primavera Rota” exhibits the contrast between an enjoyable and tranquil life and the suffering from living and fighting a political regime.
