La Lira de Pozuelo is a symphonic pasodoble commissioned by the Asociación Músico-Cultural La Lira of Pozuelo, in Madrid, for celebrating the XX anniversary of the establishment of this society. Although the piece has a very common structure (a first theme in F minor and a Trio in F major connected by a long transition) La Lira de Pozuelo is a very particular and personal pasodoble:  The composer explores armonic and tonal ways very unusual in the classical pasodobles but without distorting the genuine flavor that impregnates all the piece.
