Cinco Miniaturas (2009) was commissioned and dedicated to Carmen Borregales and Carlos Escalona, members of the “Dúo Contemporáneo de Caracas” and former students of the composer. The piece was composed in 2009 and premiered in 2011 at the “X Festival de Jóvenes Clarinetistas Venezolanos.” The piece reflects a more abstract approach by the composer, where he experiments with different ways of writing for these two instruments. Some of the miniatures (introducción, valse, and intermezzo) start with a series of chords in different registers and dynamics. The chords are abstract, but their tonal centers serve to set the harmonic and melodic layout of the following sections.
