Item Number: NX.GB5196-2

David Fontanesi here presents five polished orchestral works that range from a small string ensemble with the addition of concertante instruments, to the forces of a full orchestra. In adopting a prevalently neo-tonal idiom, dense with thematic elaboration and subtleties of timbre, the composer once again reasserts his distance both from post-Webernism (involving what he himself calls "pointilliste, spectral or structuralist metastases") and from the excessive simplification of the minimalists and neo-romantics that, all too often, verges on sloppiness. Italian composer David Fontanesi holds a degree in Medieval Philosophy from the University of Padua and Composition from the Accademia Musicale Chigiana of Siena where he studied with Azio Corghi. He also studied music at the Academy Romanini in Brescia. He has written a variety of works for multiple instrumentations, in addition to publishing multiple academic papers and a novel.
