chamber music & VOCAL WORKS
La Notte Oscura dell'Anima, Op. 9
for string quartet, piano, piccolo flute, clarinet, tam-tam & triangle
“La Notte Oscura dell'Anima” translates to ‘the dark night of the soul’ and is a chamber piece written for a small ensemble of strings, piano, piccolo flute, clarinet, tam-tam and triangle. It treats the death of the old for the birth of the new, leaning on a concept of intense spiritual struggle in the peak of monastic life and a necessary step towards Theosis. Its duration is about 8 minutes.
Vetera Et Nova, Op. 8
for carillon, violin and electronics
"Vetera Et Nova" was commissioned by the City Carillonneur of Enschede, Esther Schopman. It is a piece in concert length which is written specifically for the City Carillon of Enschede, a solo violin and electronics (2 modular synthesizers, 2 tape machines, 2 digital synth setups). The première took place on the 04.06.2023 in Enschede.
As the title suggests, the piece is opposing the old and the new, putting the very old instrument of the carillon in a contemporary context and featuring a sonic development from simplicity to dystopia by manipulating the traditional instruments more and more through the electronics.
Uncreated Light, Op. 7
