Variazioni

The score work around the famous theme La donna è mobile from Verdi’s Rigoletto.

It was a commission for Festival di Bellagio 2011 edition: a only one variation from various composers.

I wrote the first variation very close to original score in melody and harmony.

In a second time I had the idea to go on with harmony and strumentation progressively away from the original score and a final ricapitolation in the forth and last variation.

....an amazing energy, funding and collecting works is needed to organize and realize an orchestra such as SCO and all these wonderful concerts, you make the quality of music rise in every musical work and there are not a lot of you out there.
