The “Passion according to St. Baqueta” for snare drum, was composed for the international contemporary music festival "Two Days & Two Nights of New Music" in August 2009 in Odessa, Ukraine. Dedicate to my composition teacher Professor Karmella Tsepkolenko.
This work describes the psychological moment that Jesus could have lived before and during the Via Crucis: the anxiety of his destiny, the feeling of abandonment of his Father, and resignation of the expected and his death.
The snare drum is interpreted in all its possible resources evoking a contemporary air that enters in context with the religious atmosphere and humanly tragic.
