Jose Angel Valente’s work provides an essential reference to comprehend the actual literary fact in Spain. Not only his poetry and essays, but also his thought and his sthetic definition, occupy a very relevant place, in a wider artistic sense. As a result of a large and close relationship -in a musical and personal field- this poet gets also an important presence in the composition of Mauricio Sotelo. In this short text, I seek to overview the way in which the verse of Jose Angel Valente and his poetic and sthetic notions are revealed in Mauricio Sotelo’s compositions. This will lead us to identify also the most important features -like a deep convergence of interdisciplinary references- that define Sotelo’s music.
