Intimate Letters is a tribute to György Kurtág. The project was born from Costellazione K, which represents the theatrical mise en scéne, created together with the director Pietro Babina on August 20th 2016, at the Teatro dei Rozzi in Siena, for the Chigiana Music Week. Of course Intimate Letters evokes Leoš Janáček, but at the same time it marks a path in György Kurtág's human nature. His voice, in fact, stolen through a quick telephone conversation, caught during a lesson or, again, recorded during a rehearsal with Claudio Abbado, suggests, signs, invokes, screams, jams, flies and travels. Fast, of course, and always struggling to keep up with his super-mobile way of thinking. An uncompromising, radical, coherent, lucid, destabilizing thought. A whole world caught in the moment. Kurtág's voice unravels through music, dispenses pearls of wisdom, marks the time of our musical journey around him. Together with his music you will listen to pieces commissioned to composers as a tribute for this event that intended to celebrate, in 2016, his ninetieth birthday. In order of appearance: Toshio Hosokawa, Lukás Ligeti, Alessio Elia, Howard Skempton, Peter Ablinger, Peter Eötvös and László Sáry. Together with them, music from the past by authors dear to him: Robert Schumann, Johann Sebastian Bach. A floral tribute, therefore, where the flowers take on a metaphorical guise, as in his music. Those flowers that represent the delicacy and transience of our existence. Those hands that intertwine on the piano and create sonic garlands, arabesques, meetings, quarrels.

Piccola Macchina del Tempo, recital​

Piccola Macchina del Tempo è un orologio impazzito. 

Un gioco di rimandi tra ciò che è vicino e ciò che è lontano. 

Il vecchio come nuovo. 

Il nuovo come eco storica. 

Per pensare, per lasciarsi andare, per sorprendere. 

Saltando a piè pari tutto quello che sta in mezzo, in un batter d’aria. 

Dieci anni sono passati da quando Stefano ci ha lasciati. 

Per questo vorrei ricordarlo con una dedica affettuosa. 

Attraverso la sua musica, che non ci lascerà mai.

The music of Laurence Crane and Pauline Oliveros

Pauline Oliveros - Trio for flute, piano and page turner
Pauline Oliveros - Portrait of Manuel Zurria
Laurence Crane - Piano Piece no.23

Laurence Crane - Gli Anni Prog

with Mark Knoop (piano)

Music by Laurence Crane and Pauline Oliveros is featured on the soundtracks of the two new films by Beatrice Gibson. This concert presents pieces by both composers; some sharing similar aesthetic and structural characteristics with Gibson's output and also with the work of Gertrude Stein, on whose screenplay Gibson bases 'Deux Soeurs Qui Ne Sont Pas Soeurs'. Exploring aspects of portraiture, repetition and duplication - exact and inexact - the music seems in many ways closely aligned to the notion of 'the copy' that fascinates Gibson. Manuel Zurria worked with Oliveros on his realisation of 'Portrait', which he subsequently released on CD; Mark Knoop and Zurria have both been involved with the performance of Crane's music for several years now.
