“El viaje de Frère Jacques por la música" consists in a series of variations which represents the evolution of western classical music. The original idea is to create a whole piece with just a single theme, in this case, the Frère Jacques theme. With this material, the composer tries to recreate 12 different music styles in a didactic way so as the public can understand the main characteristics of every music style just by looking at how the theme changes and evolves in different ways.
It will be represented soon again. Meanwhile, you can watch here a didactic video of the last representation which shows how the piece works. Enjoy it!!!
