Work created to incorporate it in my first record work as a music producer: Tanae.

The piece represents two squirrels looking for food and climbing and descending the trees in a nervous and lively way, as these animals so characteristic of our forests are.

Also, a rondeau is a musical form that is based on a musical idea repeating itself, while between repetition and repetition new musical ideas arise. In this case I created a free-form rondeau, with an introduction and a coda that completes the piece. But both the introduction, the themes that pivot on the main theme, like the coda, have a motivational relation between them, so that they seem to have arisen from the same inspiring focus.

A vital and at the same time tender piece that tries to make a musical view of the nervous and living movements of these animals.
