TitleHomenaje a Joaquín Sorolla (Cuadros Sinfónicos): An Analysis of Bernardo Adam Ferrero’s Musical Interpretation of the Programmatic Themes in the Paintings of Joaquín Sorolla

Abstract: In 1988 Bernardo Adam Ferrero's wind band composition Homenaje a Joaquín Sorolla was premiered at the International Wind Band Contest in Valencia, Spain. This relatively unknown wind band composition combines the elements of visual art and music to create a contemporary work for wind band using oil-canvas paintings of Valencian artist Joaquín Sorolla as the source of inspiration. In this document, the author discusses pertinent biographical information about the composer and the artist, and examines the wind band composition and the paintings through musical and visual analysis to evaluate Ferrero's musical interpretation of programmatic themes of the paintings. Through analysis of the craftsmanship of this composition and its connection to the visual arts, the author advocates for Homenaje a Joaquín Sorolla’s inclusion in the core wind band repertoire.
