Voyage en Italie

The shade of Luigi Nono hovers. This key composer left his mark on a Stefano Bulfon, completely open to the unexpected, and trained a Martino Traversa in composition, also encouraging him to found and direct the Ensemble Edgar Varèse.
Another champion on the cutting-edge of electro-acoustic research, the alchemist in sound Mauro Lanza has no equal for combining, superimposing and removing, in search of ever-more fluid writing... without ever abandoning mischievous incursions into the world of childhood.
Giuliano D’Angiolini, musicologist and ethnomusicologist, with his keen interest in musical computing and fascinated by music of the Middle Ages and folk music, prompted the great composer Gérard Pesson to say: ’He is absolutely singular in the musical landscape’.
But all four of them are Italian, heirs to so many brilliant artists who shaped our western culture, and Claudio Monteverdi, the eldest by more than four centuries, naturally invited himself to this concert.
