Libro d’inverno Libro d’inverno ↓↑→↓←↑↓ General Infos flute 2007 14′ texts by Stefano Lappa Babelscores Notes Libro d’inverno (Winter Book) represents the first chapter within a larger cycle dedicated to seasons. I already concluded Libro d’estate (Summer Book, 2009-2016), Libro d’Aprile (April Book, 2012), while Capronata (2012) is somehow a rough sketch of the last chapter about autumn Generally, these pieces aren’t meant to describe anything (no Vivaldi renaissance here, sorry): every part is instead a sort of private journal, inspired by the reading of some literary works. Libro d’Inverno contains two references: Orhan Pamuk’s novel Kar (Snow), and a very short english verse by Stefano Lappa, that I hired as a musical material. The piece’s dramaturgy moves along the creation of an illusory, crystallized polyphony, made through the proliferation of two notes; this process is accompanied and commented by a parallel path, in which the flutist’s breathing takes eventually shape in a few spoken fragments of Lappa’s poem. The piece is dedicated to Marta Suarez-Canal further infos premiere: 30 Octobre 2008, Festival Variazioni di Pressione, Sala Maffeiana, Verona.
