I would like to say all the happiness I've had while writing a piece for a full symphonic orchestra. Creation in the field of music is often summoned by small instrumental formations or 15/20 instruments sets. To write for more than 70 musicians allows to blow up the sound space with which we are usually confronted and to realize on a large scale our own musical experiments, while working in the memory of our symphonic music repertory.
AntePrima is built on a simple shape and bases himself on a structure of increase. The initial gesture which crosses the registers from the grave to the treble will be amplified throughout the score, and that in all the elements which characterizes it: rhythmic cell, harmonic structure, bellows dynamics, alloys of the instrumental timbres.
The work is short, I thus called her AntePrima ("before the first one") in the idea I shall write very soon for the same formation other music pages which will succeed this part.
The score is dedicated to Valerio Sannicandro, composer associated with the new project of Philharmonisches Orchester of Cottbus.
