Ifigenia en

By Wilfredo Terrazas

Program Notes

Ifigenia en is loosely inspired by the Greek myth of Iphigenia, and, more specifically, by the fact that she never got to make one single decision her entire life. In this piece, the performers/improvisers get to decide almost everything. In fact, the only thing I decided for sure was the title. The piece can be played as a solo or in any ensemble combination and it was written for Ensamble Chamizo, who gave the premiere in Mexico City in 2013. — W.T.
