O magnum mysterium

The mystery of an infinite God who becomes so small that he finds refuge in the womb of a young woman, the joy of discovering that Heaven has come to dwell, in silence, on earth: all this is O magnum mysterium.

First snow

The piece describes contrasting feelings arising from the sight of the first snow of the year. First Snow is full of imagery and movement: herons flying toward warmer lands express the need for escape; the sky at sunset turning pale yellow like a withered marigold describes instead the need to surrender to winter; and the dance of reflections on the frozen pond represents the inevitable loss of the self in the contemplation of nature, which brings peace at last to the human heart.

 

The piece is performed by Kammerchor Manila, conducted by

sir Anthony Go Villanueva.

Secret talks between two lonely hearts

(Emperor Xuanzong dreams of meeting Yang Guifei)

I started composing this piece after I discovered the wonderful tell of the Emperor Xuanzong and Yang Guifei, from chinese history. I was very impressed by the strenght of the feeling between two people so distant because of age and of the social class, a feeling that still remain even after the death (a death unfair and cruel).

I imagined - with a lot a fantasy and letting myself be carried away by my personal feelings - what would be the power of the Emperor's love, expressed by the music he composed for Yang Guifei, a music we can't know still today.

I wanted they can meet again, in a wonderful dream, where their painful hearts could love each to other.

The piece is performed by Alexandra Burch and Matthew Curtis.

Will there really be a morning?

This piece for SSAATTBB is inspired to the wonderful poem by Emily Dickinson.

I have chosen the first stanza, that contains - in my opinion - all the "desperate hope"

of the poetress, a feeling very close to the one I often feel.

You will find a language full of dissonances, hard and sweet at the same time, with several climax, until a peaceful ending.

The piece is performed by Alexandra Burch and Matthew Curtis.

She, my nostalgia

Can love be synonymous with nostalgia? Yes, if it represents the will to be at home, in the source and close to the roots of the feelings you feel towards a person.

I dedicate to my wife every single note of this song. She, my nostalgia.
