Albert Llanas Rich: Compositions, awards, biography and more about the catalan composer


Despite having been written to commemorate the new millennium it was not released until 2018 by the excellent flutist Eduard Sánchez. A few years before its composition I became aware of the use of the Tongue-Ram technique in rapid consecutive repetitions through the flutist Roberto Fabricciani for whom Salvatore Sciarrino had written a piece using this resource. After listening to Fabricciani I was fascinated and after a dinner in Barcelona with him I decided that I would write a piece using this resource later. This is the origin of Complimenti 2000, a work that shows the expressive capabilities of the flute from the purest lyricism to the most contemporary resources such as pizzicati, percuded sounds of keys, tongue-ram and some multiphonic sound.
