Ascoltare i silenzi
Flute Masterclass by M° Matteo Cesari on the works for flute by Salvatore Sciarrino
With the gigantic catalog of his compositions, Salvatore Sciarrino has revolutionised the entire way of conceiving the musical universe, completely reinventing instrumental writing as well as the way of singing, proposing a new sensitivity in the intimate relationships and affections that move the musical discourse. In this context, the magical inventions that animate the work for solo flute occupy a decidedly prominent place. But understanding Sciarrino’s musical world is not an easy operation: it requires a particular way of listening, as well as an extremely profound way of interpreting it. Flute player Matteo Cesari, one of the reference interpreters of the Sicilian composer who recorded his whole flute production, will dedicate a 3-day masterclass to Sciarrino’s flute work for young performers, deepening the relationship between the techniques of instrumental gesture and music interpretation, between the practice of conscious listening and the reflection of the linguistic context.
The masterclass will take place in Bologna (Italy) from the 5th to the 7th of October. Participation to the masterclass is free of charge, after receiving an acceptance letter by the FontanaMIXensemble. There is no age limit for application. A final concert by the participants will be the conclusion to the masterclass.
