“A work out of the box, contemporary, a true melting pot in which classical symphonic music meets jazz, pop, the techno […] suitable for everyone but, above all, for the youngest, for the message it leaves behind, for the mix of musical and performative genres that brings to the forefront, for the courage with which it was written and wants to travel the world, and because above all at 20 years it is poised between great fears and immense dreams…”
The masquerade orchestra
The whole orchestra is a storyteller, not only with music language but also with its movements and costumes. The show is freely inspired by the homonymous 1939 novel by Tommaso Landolfi. “La pietra lunare (The lunar stone)” opens on a grotesque and almost hallucinatory «scene of provincial life». «From the bottom of darkness» the protagonist feels looked at by «two black eyes, dilated and wild» that throw him in awe and terror. And at the same time he cannot help catching «a pale face, of brown hair, a dazzling breast discovered by half». Thus appears to us Gurù, the girl-goat…
LP project: the first studio album
LP is a synergic project, collected in a CD, that comes alive out of the emotions, passions, visions, fantasies and thoughts of a composer, of a conductor and of many musicians, each one with his own desires and background, but all united by a joyous openness to experience the diversity of the “Otherness” and to build a personal sound. LP is a synthesis of my musical journey, started back in 2011 with Lorenzo Passerini and Orchestra Vivaldi.
LP is also an instrumental acoustic research project where a deep recollection for the classics blends with a limitless time of its own. Every track was composed with and for musicians: LP is mostly made of pieces, all of which were written between 2011 and 2015 and then rivisited and extended for the recorded version, for a solo instrument with a string orchestra accompaniment. Many are the detectable influencies, that together contribuite to create pieces in which the only actual generating principle is variation itself. The basic concepts of the composing structure are unmistakably traceable in the typical codes of western music, but their practical realization takes a dialogic turn, always able to weave suggestions and to make itself recognizable. Our hope is to satisfy the expectations of a curious listener and to show that sometimes the new can take a form that at first look might not seem new at all.
