Un abismo encendido de miradas
ISMN : 979-0-2325-3384-1
un abismo encendido de miradas/an abyss ignited with glances
for soprano or counter tenor, flute, cello, violin and percussion.
This piece is based on "Pien d'amoroso affetto" by Giulio Caccini (1546-1618) in the performance by Alfred Deller. I worked with a meticulous understanding of the particularities of his performance in order to develop extended instrumental techniques connected with particular expressive needs.
The piece is focusing on a reflection concerning musical language and different types of connection with poetic expression. It engaged with early western music and its spirituality and sense of poetic melancholy _sometimes also of joy_ viewed from a contemporary perspective.
Commissioned by Ceibo International Composer Meeting.
