I met composer Daniele Bravi in Roma, at the Villa Medici, when we were both participating in a one-week workshop with Pascal Dusapin. We had a great time there, sharing lively musical talks, and exploring instrumental possibilities on the clarinet that would match a spectral compositional approach.
Then, we spent a lot of time together when we were studying with Ivan Fedele at Strasbourg Conservatory.
I am delighted to bring to your attention a new monographic album with Daniele Bravi's music: Del veto e del falso - The True & The False.
You are going to discover beautiful piano colors in Lettere dal manicomio..., while Meditazione Quarta is full of very nice timbre combinations: Daniele has always been very attentive to the inner ligfe of the sounds in his works. Personally, I was thrilled to hear the bass clarinet solo Aris: clarinetist Roberta Gottardi plays beautifully, with delicate, refined multiphonic sounds. It reminded me the days we shared when we played together for Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Finally, the ensemble draws vibrant colors from Meditazione prima: this authentic musical meditation will take you to another place.
