Notes on this piece

Piece composed for the "Chevillion-Bonnaud Prize" in the 13th Concours International de Piano d'Orléans.

The title Natura viva con glissandi [living nature/life with glissandos] comes from a typically title in painting, for paintings depicting fruits and flowers, rooted out and separated from their plant or the ground, or dead animals: Still life (with...). 
Contrary to that, the "depicted" sounds in a music score have a potentially infinite life, revived and materialized every time they are transformed into vibrations by interpreters.

This piece is the continuation of a cycle of three duo pieces for strings (violin, viola, cello) and piano. The original core is a musical and instrumental gesture: the glissando. 
In this work I directed my attention to the concrete dimension of the sound, from the double point of view of the production and the perception of it. I focused on the inner nature of the piano, as a means to generate sounds and, consequently, on the nature of the actions employed on this instrument.
Specifically, I tried to obtain the perception of the continuity in the change of a pitch, as sliding from a pitch to another without the natural discontinuity in the piano because of the discrete subdivision by the keys of its pitch range.

I went deep in the physical dimension of the instrument, to reinvent and modulat the way of production of the sound. For that, I was guided continuously by an idea of temporal development of the sound, that is an idea of "life" of the sound.


Live performance of the world premiere on 10th March 2018 in the Auditorium of the Conservatory of Orléans by the composer.
