SOLLIMA Giovanni

(Palermo, 1962)

The Songlines per violoncello
00h 19' 00" Chamber

On sale (3023)

Inspired by Bruce Chatwin's novel of the same name, this piece grates against any sort of constraint to formal composition. As the author refers to the songs of the Aboriginal Africans, so too does Sollima seek to 'rediscover other modes of song rooted into the Sicilian earth that intertwine, mix, and confound ancient and stunning ruins'.

Composed in: 1993
