This solo could have been titled “16 Caprices for cello.” As in Paganini’s Caprices, all the techniques and virtuosity of the classical tradition are used here, expanded and enriched by the sounds and research of the contemporary one. However, the approach to the instrument is physical and bodily characteristic of European free improvisation and jazz. But as in Tristan Honsinger, Leroy Jenkins or in Cage’s Freeman Etudes for violin the focus is always The Music, whose often hidden corners are uncovered. References to the many traditions encountered, to animals, ethnic sounds, the sound of other instruments, noises and the human voice, are many and are always addressed with a smile on the lips.

______________________________________

Questo solo avrebbe potuto intitolarsi “16 Capricci per violoncello”. Come nei Capricci di Paganini vengono qui utilizzate tutte le tecniche e i virtuosismi della tradizione classica, ampliata e arricchita dalle sonorità e dalle ricerche di quella contemporanea. L’approccio allo strumento è però quello fisico e corporeo caratteristico della libera improvvisazione europea e del jazz. Ma come in Tristan Honsinger, Leroy Jenkins o nei Freeman Etudes per violino di Cage l’obiettivo è sempre La Musica, di cui vengono scovati angoli spesso nascosti. I rimandi alle tante tradizioni incontrate, agli animali, ai suoni etnici, al suono di altri strumenti, ai rumori e alla voce umana, sono moltissimi e sono sempre affrontati col sorriso sulle labbra.
