Following his research-creation residency, IRCAM and Collegium Musicae commissioned a piece to be performed in 2016 at the Philharmonie de Paris as part of the Manifeste-2016 festival. That same year, he entrusted Alphonse Cemin with the direction of his first Opéra Bureau 470. In September 2017, as part of a project under the direction of Peter Eötvös and Pascal Dusapin supported by Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne and Ernst Von Siemens musikstiftung, Tomás Bordalejo created 2 operatic scenes at the Budapest Musical Center. In 2018, he created Fenêtrages 2 for Percussion and piano and Fétiches for solo violin for violinist Noëmi Schindler for Radio France’s “Création Mondiale” program.
In 2019, two pieces were premiered: Almafuerte at the request of the Maîtrise du CRR de Paris and the ensemble L’itinéraire, and Baguala for pianist David Kadouch. In August, a new production of the opera Bureau 470 was staged at the prestigious Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires.
2020 will see the premiere of the concerto for percussion and ensemble Les Heures, by Ensemble 2e2m conducted by Guillaume Bourgogne (commissioned by 2e2m and the Fondation Salabert), and the creation of Yeites, commissioned and premiered by Trio KDM. Several pieces from Tomás Bordalejo’s catalog will be revived in 2020, including Zapping 2 (Ensemble écoute), Fétiches (ISCM days New Zealand), Hauteurs (Festival de Cluny), Parkour (Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional Argentina, CCK), Bureau 470 (Teatro Colon, Argentina, revival of 2019 production).
