Pedro José Bernárdez Sarría

Composer-Performer

I'm a composer interested in creating objectively great works- works that are masterful in construction and move the mind- works that shimmer and extoll all that is great about the human condition. As such I continue to study and think about the objectively great in music- and to create appropriately.
