"Sunpoems" are inspired by an idealization of the Sun and of the other heavenly bodies.
It is a musical journey, disclosing and enriching the hidden landscapes of human heart.
It starts from the description of sensible visions, either verisimilar or filtered by oneiric and surrealistic suggestions.
"Sunpoems", "Impossible landscapes" and "Musical Prism" are the very incarnation of the principles of the Prismatic Music.
Such principles, developed by me through the years, leads to a sophisticated elaboration of harmonies and melodies: the enunciated themes are conducted this way, through prismatic refractions, to the full conquest of their potentialities.
A single light, when refracted by an iridescent prism, now reveals his hidden essence. Now do the musical themes, refracted by the prismatic elaboration, colourfully shine in their shimmering beauty.
The relations between melody and harmony is dynamic and flowing, gradually changing through shading variations.
The Prismatic Music independently outshines every program possible, as a pure iridescent musical technique.
Both program music and absolute music can now vibrantly pass through the colourful prism of a new musical process.
A-Sunpoem N°6 "06:30 a.m. Up there, on the other side of the clouds" (12 August 2011, for orchestra).
The Sunpoem n°6 "06:30 a.m. Up there, on the other side of the clouds" is an oneiric and allegorical musical tale.
It is subdivided into three parts:
Part I “Vertical wind”
Part II “Covered with clouds”
Part III “Birth of the beauty”.
In the first part, “Vertical wind”, our sensations are rushed by the music through the sky, while a hurling wind blows vertically.
In the second part, “Covered with clouds”, we are suspended in the clouds, where moist vapours continuously draw and modify their forms.
In the third part, “Birth of the beauty”, lulled by a very sweet theme, we fly across the last veils of vapour and we are flooded with sunbeams.
A blazing prismatic repeat of the initial theme symbolizes the birth of the concept of beauty.
The following metamorphoses drive us to the brightest point of the sun, which we can't perceive through our sense of sight, but which we have in the deepest part of our soul.
B-Sunpoem n°1 "04:00 a.m. The Sun is mirroring in the moon" (23 February 2010, for piano).
In Sunpoem n°1 "04:00 a.m. The Sun is mirroring in the moon" the sun itself, represented as a pure idea, is depicted as a streaming light reflected in the Moon.
A nostalgic lunar atmosphere prepares a sophisticated interweaving of the theme of the moon with that of the sun.
The dawn of a new day is awaited in a vibrant air full of expectations.
C-Sunpoem n°2 "06:00 a.m. Soft nightdazzles fade out in the light" (26 October 2010, for piano).
In Sunpoem n°2 "06:00 a.m. Soft nightdazzles fade out in the light" the advancing transition from the darkness of the night to the shining sunlight awakens the senses and the emotions.
The tender last nightdazzles of the stars softly prepares a series of restless thematic metamorphoses depicting the struggle of the light in the effort of regaining the vault of the skies.
A long rest now divides the hours of the night from the time of daylight.
A mysterious journey through the bass register of the piano eventually culminates in an epic theme that ignites a great virtuoso radiant finale.
D-Impossible landscape N°2 "Suspended leaves in the air" (11 November 2011, for wind ensemble and percussions).
Impossible landscapes is a collection inspired by surrealistic situations or views.
The N°2 "Suspended leaves in the air" is like a snapshot of leaves already fallen from a tree, yet suspended in the air.
Thus this piece evokes a world where time has frozen up.
Music is movement, a rythmical movement which shatters the still moment of rotation of the leaves.
The rhythm this way marks the whole musical development, being its waving like the leaves in the air.
The progressive stop of the rhythm suggests an image of temporal suspension.
E-Musical Prism n°1 "Prisma concerto" (23 November 2011, for piano and orchestra).
The Musical Prism n°1 "Prisma concerto" for piano and orchestra is based on the interweaving of the two main themes, treated as subtle threads subject to the principles of Prismatic Music.
The Musical Prism is divided in seven main parts.
A vigorous and energetic initial movement is followed by meditative segments.
In the final section the musical density culminates in a grandioso finale through the luminous radiation of a gigantic forest of immense chords.
The piano part is difficult and very virtuoso, yet fully integrated with the orchestral sound,in an unusual mixture of timbres.
