Francisco Llácer Pla (Valencia, 1918 - Valencia, 2002) was a Spanish composer and choral conductor. He was one of the first Valencian composers who assimilated the postwar avantgarde approaches, combining it with lyricism and echoes of the Valencian folklore. Tomás Marco wrote: Llácer Pla offers a new, suggestive vision of a form of musical nationalism from a new, progressive perspective.[1] A professor at the Valencia Conservatory, several of his progressive works are based in his harmonic investigations, such as his concept of heptafonism and his theory of the "balanced chord", based on the double sense of the sonorous bodies' resonance.[2]

On October 7, 2005 he was named Valencia's favorite son.[3][4]

Quotes[edit]

  • I work on a preliminary design of the material, but not just at an harmonic level. On the base of the dodecaphonic series I first construct a linear design, which usually has consequences in the verticality of the music, since my balanced chords are usually intimately bounded with the linear design. Sometimes two balanced chords generate the dodecaphonic range which I use as a sonorous background from where I extract the thematic material. I believe that maybe, in my preconscious, though in an unclear way, there's always an explorative eagerness."[5]
