"...And the pleasure blooms to die"
This piece is based in the novel "Vista desde una acera", written by Fernando Molano. Which tells the history of two young Colombian men that were infected with HIV at the end of the decade of the 80's. "...And the pleasure blooms to die" starts with a monologue of the Saxophone, similar to a sorrow, followed by a childlike tune in the piano.
