SALVATORE SCIARRINO. L'ECO DELLE VOCI

 

Milano Musica and Teatro alla Scala work side by side for this festival dedicated to Salvatore Sciarrino on the occasion of his new opera Ti vedo, ti sento, mi perdo. The opera is commissioned and produced by Teatro alla Scala and Berlin's Staatsoper Unter den Linden, and will have its world premiere on 14 of November 2017 at LaScala.

Within the festival, listeners will be able to explore four principal themes: Waiting for the wind, dedicated to the works for flute, opened by the world premiere of Un capitolo mancante; L’isola delle voci, a series based on vocal compositions; Spazi inversi, surveying the worlds of electronic music through authors like Luigi Nono;  Infinito nero, a meditation upon night and shadows.

Performances of works by Sciarrino, ranging from the 1980's to his most recent pieces, will be interspersed by composers from the past with whom he has entertained a significant dialogue: Monteverdi, Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók.

The program comprises the complete works for solo flute and for string quartet, as well as major symphonic compositions such as La nuova Euridice secondo Rilke, with soprano Anna Radziejewska and Filarmonica della Scala conducted by Tito Ceccherini; Morte di Borromini, a debut by Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai at La Scala, led by Cornelius Meister with actor Fabrizio Gifuni; the italian premiere Libro notturno delle voci with Orchestra Sinfonica G. Verdi di Milano conducted by Marco Angius with flautist Mario Caroli.

In keeping with Sciarrino's concept, focus will be on the listener. Performances will be held in venues offering the ideal acoustics for each music: from the vastness of Pirelli HangarBicocca for Studi per l’intonazione del mare to the refractive and reverberant Sala delle Cariatidi in Palazzo Reale for the ‘enchantments’ of the flute, or from the wordly setting of Teatro Gerolamo for the chamber pieces to the dark celestial dome of the Planetarium.

21 symphonic and chamber concerts, one exhibition, 4 in-depth discussions, 6 performances of Ti vedo, ti sento, mi perdo at the Teatro alla Scala. Seven world premieres, six Italian premieres, with five works commissioned by Milano Musica, including two new pieces by Salvatore Sciarrino.
