From the composer: “I first played music by Morton Feldman in 1959 with David Tudor. What fascinated me most about Feldman was his sensitive, gentle way of handling pitches. I found that again in Marino Formenti’s love of the meditative side of this music, and in November 2010 I wrote a piece for him which could also be seen as an homage to Feldman. The world it depicts – introverted, sensitive and focused on itself alone – is disrupted again and again by hectic, brutal events. That reflects the need I have to avoid absolutizing that world and to refrain from celebrating mere submersion.” For advanced players.
