Notes and Editorial Reviews Francfsconi doubt that these performances will ever be bettered. Luca Francesconi is one of the most prominent Italian composer of his generation with a substantial and varied output to his credit. The release under review provides a good idea of his output although all the works recorded here are already some ten or twenty years old.
It is not difficult etyo understand why. It is a brilliantly scored, colourful piece full of nice instrumental touches and lively rhythms, although it opens and ends in a rather subdued manner. The other works were all composed at about the Read more same time: They, too, display a considerable variety of means and moods.

Etymo is the most substantial both in length and in content. The title, Etymo as in etymology is about the search for the origin and development of language. The piece opens with an electronic drone of frsncesconi sounds giving way to a brief outburst from the ensemble. From then on, the song will unfold in a big arch, This comprises a succession of contrasted episodes mostly characterised by an often dangerously exposed soprano part and vivid instrumental colours.
At times these are enhanced by electronics. At times, too, song turns into plain speech, but song francesxoni.
The composer has an anecdote concerning this work for guitar and ensemble. Inwhile studying with Berio in Tanglewood, Francesconi showed him a piece for guitar and ensemble that he was just writing. Francescono fuoco again unfolds in a series of contrasted episodes by turns dreamy, meditative and aggressive, the whole expressed in vivid instrumental colours and rhythms.
I was a bit unsure about the last work Animus for trombone and electronics; but I must now admit that I find this a fairly fascinating, if a tad too long work.
I am still not quite sure whether I like it. This piece is not unlike Etymo in that it, too, develops from raw breathing noises that will later metamorphose into sounds. When listening to this rather breath-taking – in both meanings of the words – piece one finds it hard to believe that there is just one trombone player at work.
He is aided by brilliantly handled electronics. The piece certainly sounds terrific when heard as SACD.
The climaxes are truly shattering, even when heard on simple stereo equipment. His music is certainly complex and quite demanding but franceesconi remains first and foremost strongly expressive and often quite beautiful.
