VII. Allegro.

Inspired by the concision and essence-like quality of this literary Japanese poetic form, these pieces have allowed the composer to contrast this type of work to other formally more ambitious works in a more concentrated discursive way. The continuity and expressive intensity of what is written almost in a single stroke, like the gesture of a painter, is being held in a brief and enclosed time frame. The different pieces have a contrasted character and are of a diverse register – some of them serene, playful, lyric, rhythmic, brilliant or festive – but we also find other of a more energetic, dramatic or sad character, as in the very particular case of the sixth Haiku In Memoriam Maria del Carme Casablancas.
