This recording is a fascinating and anthological journey with songs written by Moisès Bertran between 1990 and 2010. It includes most of his compositions and begins with Escrito está en mi alma (written in my soul), a song imbued with the same intense expression as the text by Garcilaso, a blend of passion and solitude that is inevitably captivating. Right in the middle of a still silence, the very essence of any artistic expression, the composer is showing us glimpses of a sound sometimes barely a whisper. Others however are intense... he seems to reveal to us note by note Mi alma te ha cortado a su medida (my soul has moulded you to measure) while we discover each of his songs. Behind these verses is the profound sensibility of a composer, the technical knowledge of an excellent pianist, and a reflection of a rootlessness that turned eventually into adoption as he crossed the Atlantic, after his initial training in Mataró and Barcelona. He continued his studies in the United States and, has been, since July 2001, unfolding a professional career at various universities in Colombia. Missing from this recording are titles such as "The Duck", a humorous piece for a high voice, trumpet, violin, viola, cello and percussion, from 1994, or Sobre fábulas y verdades (On tales and truths), a future cycle of songs for soprano, bass and piano, inspired by texts from the Colombian writer Rafael Pombo (1833-1912), of which only La niña curiosa (the curious girl) has been premiered on the 5th July 2011.
