“Mí Bailaora” is a saxophone concert in which each piece is preceded by a short film inspired by the piece that will be performed. Musicians often also provide brief explanations so that the audience can better comprehend the music played. In “Mí Bailaora,” due to the pieces’ characteristics – which have both experiential and emotional inspiration – we have created short films with a beautiful poetic touch to transport the audience to the creative state of the composer, who, in this concert, is also the performer, the saxophonist David Salleras.
The short films have been directed and filmed by Quim Paredes, with poems written by David Salleras himself; the talented Eduard Paredes is the main actor.
The compositions of David Salleras travel between tango and flamenco music; they are very passionate as well as technically demanding and brilliant works. These pieces utilize a simple staging that complements a concert that is intimate, innovative and surprising.
