Ombra sonante, by Joan Magrané (1988)

Literary evocation is a constant theme in the output of Joan Magrané, who often resorts to extra-musical elements in his creations and doesn’t relinquish the use of madrigalisms. In the case of Ombra sonante, two poems by Giambattista Marino and Robert Blair serve as a pretext to evoke the “oracle of the forest”, an “audible shadow”, a “bell” and an “invisible image” using musical means.
