Catalog ref. : AA 17001
Massimiliano Messieri (1964) – Italian composer, conductor and music director of the Maskfest contemporay music festival – debuts on Amadeus Arte label with Zadig: 21 Capriccios for solo Cello and Ipercello (a Cello amplified and elaborated with a special app created for the project by Nicola Baroni who also wonderfully played).
Every Capriccio is a short and precise sound image related to each chapter of Voltaire’s philosophical novel “Zadig” realized through a distinctive technique and the use of hyper instruments based on the analysis/real-time monitoring of the Cello sound in terms of frequency, amplitude and timbre.
A compelling album completed by extended booklet and “Poetical Notes” by Marcello Fois.
