In May 2020, I had the pleasure of meeting Venezuelan violinist Johan Chapellín who together with Costarrican pianist Rebeca Ordóñez (Jacaranda duet) gave the world premiere of my work “Healing.”
From the day I met Johan, he gave me important feedback about writing for the violin and participated in multiple projects involving my music. I wanted to write a little piece as a gift for him and this is the result.
While waking up one morning, I saw beautiful patterns of light coming through the window and the curtain. One specific pattern caught my attention and gave me peace of mind. I had the idea of writing a lullaby as a tribute to that experience. It is a simple and lyrical piece that requires skillful performers to achieve its goal, a mix between delicacy and rich tones.
