Story behind the song
Each movement of the Quinteto is based on a poem by Cuban poet Carlos Pintado. "Denme la sombra" is based on Pintado's hymn-like "Escrito in 1988". This beautiful poem wishes for the full experience of life, to "see heaven and hell", but especially to have "love, light, sunsets". In the music, I balanced a chorale treatment of the words, as if the poem were sung, with a restless drama.
