Rewritings for solo violin
This unique work by Alessandro Cazzato gives us a glimpse of interesting contemporary authors whose work for solo violin have roots that lie deep in the musical tradition, from Gregorian chant to Bach and the Italian eighteenth century. A past that leaves its traces in new sounds, a revisited past with new signs and gestures, a new type of music, deeply influenced by the past: this is the theme of this project, focused on “rewriting”. This rewriting is intended to signify the will – and need – to reproduce the characters of traditional music with the addition of new musical ideas, as well as the attempt to recover patterns from the past. This might also entail reproducing them (even in a distorted manner) within a postmodernist experimental perspective, or as a new, unique interpretation.
