We will soon welcome two familiar names back from our opening concert to join us once again: Vittorio Montalti, composer in residence, and Beat Furrer. Both return to us with two pieces already performed by the Divertimento Ensemble; Nu descendant un escalier by Montalti and Linea dell’orizzonte by Furrer, which was featured in our opening concert of Rondò in 2015. In addition, the ensemble will reprise a performance of Kreuzspiel by Karlheinz Stockhausen, a classic from the first half of the past century played by Divertimento Ensemble a number of years ago. As with books, and literature in general, we do not have enough time and energy to dedicate to all worthy scores, of which there are many. To reread a book, to listen to a score you have listened to before, or to perform a score you have already performed may offer pleasant surprises, and maybe offer you even more than they did when you encountered them for the first time. In addition, Divertimento Ensemble will present three compositions we have never performed before; Limes I, for violin and piano by Raffaele Sargenti, Horizontal/Vertikal by Olga Neuwirth, both of which will be the Italian premier performances, and one new composition by Claudio Panariello, commissioned by Divertimento Ensemble to be performed in its world premier.
* world premier, commissioned by Divertimento Ensemble, composed by the winner of the composition competition AFAM 2017
