The Giuseppe Verdi Symphonic Orchestra of Milan, in collaboration with the Piccolo Teatro, will be performing in a two-concert review which examines some of the most important musical styles of recent centuries, from the father of dodecaphony Arnold Schönberg to the blending of contemporary sounds and traditional indigenous song.
The second concertis dedicated to the 21st century and will present the Concerto per violino by Gabriele Manca and the piece Where the whole Universe dwells by Giovanni Bonato, conductor Francesco Bossaglia, with Fulvio Luciani on the violin.
How is listening provoked? What do we listen to when we listen? At what moment does hearing become listening? These are some of the questions that the Concerto per violino by Gabriele Manca seeks to answer. It is a solo violin in this case which serves as the tracer which marks, or rather reveals, the coincidences and conditions that lead us from hearing to listening.
The voice plays a similar role in Where the whole universe dwells, guiding the hearer/listener on a journey through distant lands inhabited by Native Americans with their ancient traditional music and revealing the ties with the discordant sonority of contemporary music.
