Best Documentary Award! Another success for us. “Looking For A Friend” by Karma Gava and Alvise Morato and music by Emiliano Imondi and Daniele Furlan wins the 1st prize at ‘Cortisonici Film Festival’ | ‘DocumentaMy 2014′ . A great chance to enjoy the short film format (fiction or documentary) in this third edition for the festival‘s short documentary created within project GenerAzioni, supported by ‘Fondazione Cariplo’, and combined with ‘Cortisonici’, the short film festival born eleven years ago from ‘Filmstudio 90′.
In Tokyo several agencies procure persons who, under payment, become friends, cousins for birthdays, extras for funeral, spouses. ”Looking For A Friend” combines the originality and the trasversal nature of the subject. Solitude is the key, declined in the social, economic and emotional side that reveals a human disarming question: “You ask me if I have a real friend. But first tell me what it is”.
Great satisfaction today! Finally, after a year of work and study, here is the certificate for the course of “Music and Technology on Films”. It was organized by the Forum Academy in collaboration with IITM and MidiWare. It was held at the prestigious Forum Music Village Recording Studios in Rome, Italy … Thanks to Silvio Relandini, all other teachers and all the studio staff…
Last week I’ve got the chance to be in Lisbon to assist at the performance of a work of mine, a Suite in three movements (Lento, Allegro moderato, Con moto) for violin and double-bass I wrote for Duo ‘Contrasti’, a project founded in 1994 by the violinist Diana Tzonkova and the double bassist Ercole De Conca, both Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra members.
I followed this couple of musicians for three dates, from 30 october till 1 November, in different places in Lisbon as ‘Pacos de Coelho’ in the City Hall, ‘El corte Ingles’ where the concert was smartly introduced by Alexandre Delgado, a famous violist and composer himself , and at ‘Salao Azul da Casa Mora’ in Montijo.
Furthermore was played a sonata by a portuguese composer, Frederico de Freitas. The original manuscript was for Violin and Cello and this transcription for double-bass is an example how this amazing ensemble works. Indeed ‘some times I felt like I had to change octave on some of the bass phrases’ said Ercole ‘so that the two melodic lines didn’t overlap in a confusing way’. An impressive result that proves the perfect fusion of two sounds able to create a unique sonority resulting from two extremes of the string family so apparently different in range and timber.
‘Frederico de Freitas is one of the most representative composer in the XX century Portuguese scene’ said Ercole ‘this sonata, written in 1923, is the first example of polytonality in the Iberic peninsula […] A photocopy of the manuscript was kept in the library of the Metropolitan Orchestra and it was for years on the list of things I wanted to read. On a summer afternoon I had an inspiration and I started to read it. Immediately I became aware of the validity of this composition in spite of the poor state of the manuscript. This gave me the urge to make a transcription also because it isn’t been published yet. A real buried treasure!
At last, the concerts ended with a charming encore, the first movement of the Concert Duo by E. Meyer.
Duo ‘Contrasti’ will revisit Nino Rota absolute music in a series of three concerts shortly announced on their web site. Mr Rota music is well known to the large audience for its legacy with music track. Although less popular, his absolute music production (music not related to movies) is not less interesting. The double bass Divertimento concertante, the d minor violin Sonata altogether with Mr Rota Trio will be presented in the upcoming concerts featuring Mrs Anna Thomasik on the piano.

Recently, we had the pleasure to attend the premiere of a reduced edition of W. A. Mozart’s “Le nozze di Figaro”, the first collaboration of a successful series, as you know, between the great composer and the librettist Da Ponte.

Everybody knows the conditions of the music in Italy nowadays, for example the farewell of Riccardo Muti from Rome’s Opera, in a surrounding of economical difficulties and of public institutions indifference. This experience has been produced and organized by “Accademia degli Invaghiti” and named “Vi racconto l’opera”; it is one of many small but important realities fighting against the current situation, trying to create interest among the people, it demonstrates how it is possible to realize excellent products despite a low budget, also thank to the union of experts in the field.
We hope to see new works soon.
The show will play again Sunday, November 23th, 2014 at ‘Teatro degli Invaghiti’ in Rome.

Yesterday, Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 at the ‘Licinio Refice’ Conservatory in Frosinone, took place the performance by Erato Alakiozidou, greek pianist from Thessaloniki, actively involved in the promotion of works by composers of his native land between 20th and 21st centuries.
Title of the concert ‘Pictures in blue and white’ , that gave us the opportunity to listen to the works of Yannis Konstandinidis, Nikos Skalkottas, Yannis Papaioannou, Nikos Astrinidis, Manos Hatzidakis, Theodore Antoniou, Georges Couroupos, Calliope Tsoupaki and Giorgos Koumendakis.
An interesting journey through the Mediterranean sounds, ethnic rhythmic dances, lyrical and aphoristic episodes; a kind of music that combines features of the current music with the traditional folk heritage in a coherent and skillfull manner. Very nice.
