SOLLIMA Giovanni

(Palermo, 1962)

Africa per orchestra d'archi
00h 19' 00" String

Orchestral material con rental. The final chord of a Schubert string quintet is the only recollection in this piece to the European musical culture. Sollima uses ancient Arabic scales and an unrelenting rhythm, which 'assumes a physical presence, the dramatic component of which translates into dance, into theatricality'.

Composed in: 1994
