German premiere: 22.10.2020
Luca Sanzò, viola
In the context of the conference „listening/hearing“
organised by Carsten Seiffarth for the Beethovenstiftung
Requiem for solo viola, is a dense and reiterative piece recalling the counterpoint of the “Grosse Fuge” by Beethoven. Four real and virtual lines are pressed together in the reduced space of the ambitus of the viola. A non-stop search of impossible simultaneities.
Requiem is dedicated to Michele Sanzò, brother of the extraordinary violist and historical friend Luca Sanzò.
