Human’s Music

New Saturday, new movie to watch. For all. HUMAN’s Musics – A film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand / Composed by Armand Amar. I quote:

“I am deeply taken with traditional music, it moves me, it connects you to emotion. The idea with HUMAN was to create songs that would reflect the same emotion generated by the interviews. I wanted things to open up, to open up one’s heart, to let the sadness be without any restraint. HUMAN has been one of these rare moments in my life as a film composer during which I could express all these different cultures at the same time : either working on minimalist songs or meeting with these singers and musicians coming from all around the world. Which note did I first produce ? I had more like a global vision in mind, an atmosphere that would merge into the film and that would bring people together, this was my starting point. The part I created for the Mongolian sequence might be the best summary of the atmosphere I wanted the film to have. Yann has given me a particular role as a film composer that is very diffrent from the one other directors usually give me. There is a strong friendship between us, an intimate relationship. He’s generous. You follow him because of his fantastic instinct, I can advise on the artistic process being in a way the first audience.” Armand Amard, composer of the HUMAN music.

Servizio Pubblico

La Rai ha trasmesso sul primo canale la diretta dalla Scala di Milano. Un po’ di anni chiesi all’allora direttore di RaiUno quando avremmo visto un’opera in prima serata. Mi rispose piccato “Mai! Finché sarò io il direttore della rete”. Per fortuna che non ci sei più. Cara Rai, visto che prendi i soldi degli italiani continua a fare servizio pubblico. Programma opera, concerti e prosa in prima serata sulla prima delle reti. Piano piano potresti perfino alzare il pietoso livello culturale del nostro Paese

Auguri Luigi Pirandello (e grazie Accademia Filarmonica Romana)

Esattamente 150 anni fa nasceva Luigi Pirandello. Cosa resta oggi della sua opera? Su questo lascio la parola ad altri ma ricordo l’omaggio che ieri sera ha voluto dedicargli l’Accademia Filarmonica Romana. Alla Sala Casella abbiamo assistito ai Dialoghi tra il gran me e il piccolo me: in scena quattro attori (Simone Borrelli, Giovanni Maria Briganti, Cecilia D’Amico, Maria Scorza) e due musicisti (Alice Cortegiani ai clarinetti e Samuele Telari alla fisarmonica). Il testo sdoppia ciascuno di noi in essenza e apparenza e ci regala uno squarcio della modernità pirandelliana. Ad arricchire la serata cinque prime assolute (Fabrizio De Rossi Re Interludio pirandelliano, Marcello Filotei Specchio, Marcello Panni Nocturne 3, Enrico Marocchini Le due anime,  e Albino Taggeo Akragantos). A chiusura della serata Paolo Bonacelli ha magistralmente letto il testamento spirituale del grande letterato.

What a Model for this Portrait
