Alejandro Vivas’ music (“La conjura de El Escorial”, 2008) develops with restraint through the sensitivity and elegance of his own handwriting. For  e Chess Player (Luis Oliveros), Alejandro composes a suggestive tableau showing the emotion under- lying the protagonist’s movements: Diego Padilla, a Spanish chess champion, who gets entangled in fate’s knitting and ends up thrown in a SS prison, accused of espionage. Again, it is man against the machine. Creativity (emotion, sensitivity, tenderness) op- posed to the regime’s coldness, personi ed in Colonel Maier, a strange playmate to the survival of the main character in hostile surroundings. Alejandro tenderly trans- forms, through a delicate orchestration, movements in emotions.  e strategy consists in a near pious chat overlapping the skin, the same way the 32 pieces hide behind the mystifying thoughts of the chess players. Flute, piano and cello (the most human of in- struments) are the tools which Alejandro uses to draw on the pentagram his peculiar strategy, a talented musician’s scheme permeating drama into a story swelled in emo- tion. Flute, piano and cello are rocked by the subtle winds of the string, walking along with the chess player in his epic journey; winds (elegante ma non tropo) going across the chess board, jumping from square to square to reach the  nal stance...checkmate! With this framework there is no chance of a tie. Either you win the game or you lose your life, that’s it. But behind Alejandro’s heartfelt melodies lie an aura of hope (held by the chess board) keeping stretched the emotions that the music lends to the story.  e melody carries out the most complicated movement of them all, the one that al- lows the pieces to move over the board with a regal personality, leaving behind them emotion’s stamp, Alejandro Vivas’ genuine and mystifying strategy.
