Synopsis

Album Description
The Italian composer's 12 Madrigali, performed at the 2008 Salzburg Festival, explored the finely structured landscapes of sound and delicately shimmering moods of nature on the "continent Sciarrino." Seventeenth-century haikus by Japanese poet Matsuo Basho waft toward the 21st century, whispering voices transform lyrical contemplations into musical matter, and onomatopoeia imitating nature sounds provides the rhythmic priming. This recording of the premiere is yet another gem in Col legno's series of releases documenting New Music performances at the Salzburg Festival.
