One day he told me: ‘There are going to be some lunches that Mirtha is going to do. She made a set that is like something for a queen, an empress, it’s spectacular. I need music that is imperial.’”

“It has lower backgrounds and moments for the foreground. It is designed for curtain. I composed it at home, it must have taken me a week or less. I had so much work that I didn’t have much time. You got into it and until you got it out you didn’t stop. I was newly married, my children were little, they went to school. You had to work. I worked on that, on everything that comes,” he expressed while saying that the inspiration for “Emperatriz” was “the music of the time of Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi, in the classicism they made for the kings, because the Metals at that time were what attracted the most attention.
