Program note (ENG)
In summer 2010 I wrote Tra gli alberi, a piece for two children playing violin. The piece was created working together with the children and was an exploration of their interactions through sound and a discovery of their own instruments.
Last winter, working with the Nieuw Ensemble, I tried to bring some aspects of this previous particular experience in a different context and to keep them in my writing. I am grateful for this opportunity. Sempre hai occhi segreti gave rise to aspects of my music that were often hidden and unvoiced and brought me new thoughts: to see a landscape as it is when I am not there; the idea of a music that doesn’t know that here outside somebody is listening.
