Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Guarda i lumi - 5 migrating sound images for violin and piano
    The starting point for this composition is the examination of the theme of migration. The
    musical composition is structured in five parts. Each of the five parts is intended to be a
    sound picture. The entire composition, however, is conceived as a unit, i.e. without
    pauses. The title refers to the lights in daily life, an allusion to the search for beauty,
    warmth and peace in the tragedy of the lives of migrating people.
    The titles of the 5 sound patterns are: Profondo oscuro (scorrevole), Luminoso cantando
    (grave con tenerezza), Fusion sfuggendo (ritmico leggero e funky), Sofferenza incerta
    (canto recitativo), Tra lirico e fuocoso (presto).
