Música ciudadana is a collage made out of fragments of characteristic rhythms, turns of phrase and sonorities drawn from the vernacular music of Buenos Aires (tango, milonga, bolero …); the music that envelops its streets on summer evenings, filtering through half-closed blinds, echoing in patios, defiantly pouring out of radios or hummed by intimate voices. Constantly changing textures and figures contribute to a kaleidoscopic surface, unified by a sense of tonal direction.

Premiered by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra / Odaline de la Martinez, City Halls, Glasgow, 6 April 1995.
