First prize in the Composition Contest of Pasodobles from the XXV Meaño Bands Festival 2016. First performance was given by Meaño Musical Union Wind Orchestra, conducted by Diego Javier Lorente at Ribadumia Municipal Concert Hall, Spain, February 21, 2016.
BUMM is a concert pasodoble (double-step) written for wind orchestra. The origin of this passionate form of music is disputed, although shares characteristics with the march form. The facts known about it – due to physical historical evidence – are that it was being written as early as the 18th century, since Spain has pasodoble scores dating back to 1780; that it was incorporated into comedies and adopted as a regulatory step for the Spanish infantry; do not being introduced into bullfights until the 19th century. Its most common structure is adjusted to the march form, that is: (Introduction) – AA – BB – (Bridge) – Trio – Bridge – Trio – (Coda). The sections between brackets are flexibles and sometimes the AA is repeated before the first trio (completing a ternary form).
BUMM is an acronym formed from the initials of the full name in Spanish of the institution who powered the contest, "Banda Unión Musical de Meaño" (Meaño Musical Union Wind Orchestra). Its original title was "Elena Rodríguez", the name of my mother and to whom this composition is affectionately dedicated, but the rules of the composition contest did not allow to keep it after have obtained the first prize. With BUMM I have closed my discrete incursion into this passionate musical form, as long as I feel that have nothing more to say or add to it. Therefore, this is the last piece of a trilogy I have started with "Enrique López" in 2012 and continued with "Prost!" in 2014, synthesizing both works into it and bringing a possible answer to them.
