Sequences for orchestra is Llanas’ first orchestral work, composed between 1985 and 1986. It won the “Premio Ciudad de Barcelona” in 1987, and demonstrates unmistakable maturity.
The four sequences form a global unity, not unlike a symphonic suite, although eventually they may be performed separately, given the autonomous nature of each of the four. Sequences for orchestra was premiered in Poznan (Poland) on November 25th, 1988 by the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by José Luis Temes. A recording of the rehearsals for this premiere was released on CD.
