Project San Quirico d’Orcia
I’m very flattered to have been chosen to be part of the ensemble, which will consist of six excellent musicians from Lugano and Basel and five composers who will write music specifically for this ensemble. At the same time this will be a masterclass for composers, organized so they can get to know all the possibilities and techniques of selected instruments. After the preparation of new compositions, the official premiere will be performed at the same location where it is organized and prepared – San Quirico d’Orcia – Tuscany, Italy.
After the official release, the concerts will be held in Lugano in early October, in Basel, the 30th of October, and then in Sardinia. We will be performing premieres of compositions by five composers: Luca Valli, Alberto Barberis, Sandro Mungianu, Giovanni Santini, Andreas Frank.
I’m very glad I got the chance to also be the editor of the compositions, so I will be responsible for giving advice on all types of accordion techniques. Coordinator of the whole project is an eminent Swiss composer Nadir Vassena, with whom I had a chance to work for several years, composing for me and working together on similar projects.Website of the organization in San Quirico d’Orcia: www.musicaneglihorti.it
