Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Peripeteia III (2014), for sinfonietta

    This greek word alludes to a radical change in the development of a literary or dramatic plot.
    The composition starts from the idea of bisbigliando. The initial and diachronic pedal is going to
    be distorted and transformed into a synchronic chord. Hence, an acoustic illusion helps build the
    aforementioned radical change: every part of the blocks that seemingly go down, are actually
    lines that go up through the harmonic register. The metaphor of the work is a single note
    observed with a magnifying glass, gradually revealing the hidden components of its nature.
