First performances of chamber music in Italy and Argentina

On November 10 at the Festival di Nuova Consonanza in Rome there will be the first performance of Hacia el umbral del aire, for bayan and electronics, commissioned by Germano Scurti and the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte in Messico.



On this piece Javier Torres Maldonado writes: “While I was planning the piece, thinking about the idea of “language regression” appearing in some of Berio’s electronic pieces, I thought that as well as the fusion of vocal sounds with that of the bayan, as I was specifically requested, it would be very interesting to have a human sound as the base with a strong expressive content, a sound that would constitute the gestural and gravitation from which to derive each musical gesture or idea and most of the electronic sounds: the sigh, the human sigh, but also the one we find in some of the madrigals of Monteverdi and Gesualdo”
