Dello Scompiglio



Voice, Vocality and Singing


The title of the 2024 Dello Scompiglio musical season, Voice, Vocality and Singing is an example of a path that has the voice at its centre.

The chosen path does not pretend to exhaust such a vast and variegated theme, but aims to explore it through multiple facets; the voice, the sound-verse up to the word, monody and polyphony, the song of nature, voices in popular culture, and instrumental singing.

The first concert, featuring the ensemble “UT Insieme Vocale-Consonante “ directed by Lorenzo Donati, will be a journey through the history of vocality, from the enchantment of Renaissance polyphony of authors such as Monteverdi, De Victoria, Di Lasso, and Sisask, reimagined by Donati himself, to pieces by important modern composers such as Part, Riley, Glass and Cage.

In the second concert, "Il Canto Strumentale" (Instrumental Singing), Christian Schmitt’s refined and sensitive oboe, accompanied on the piano by Alessandra Gentile, will be the protagonist of a journey in which vocal calls permeate every note, revealing its affinity with the reverberations of the human voice. Similarly in Holliger’s virtuoso piece, in which a reference to the vocal technique of multiphonic singing can be heard.

"Dragon Fly" will transport us to a dimension of pure musical joy with Naomi Berril’s cello and Danusha Waskiewicz’s viola, instrumentalists and singers, who blend in a vortex of sounds and songs of different genres, celebrating the magic of making music together.

The final concert will be a real ode to nature. The pianist, Ciro Longobardi, presents a programme that includes, in addition to works by Robert Schumann and Claude Debussy, extracts from the Catalogue d'Oiseaux by Messiaen, inspired by the wonderful birdsong that the great French musician  considered to be the greatest musicians God had ever created on earth, capable of a wealth of articulation and expression often denied to human beings.

Concerts in autumn will continue this wonderful journey into the world of the voice and singing.

This eclectic programme for oboe and piano aims to celebrate the richness of singing through a  varied and engaging repertoire dedicated to the oboe, an instrument that more than any other resembles the vocal timbre.

"Poem" by Marina Dranishnikova is a work that enchants with its enveloping melodic lines, emphasising the intrinsic link between the oboe and singing, thus combining Russian tradition with a modern compositional sensitivity.

Clara Schumann’s "Romances", by their very title, lead us into a world of lyricism and expression, offering the audience an immersion into the heart of song through the sublime dialogue between oboe and piano.

In the virtuosity of Heinz Holliger’s compositions, one can hear a reference to the vocal technique of multiphonic singing, while the presence of a chorale towards the end adds depth and spirituality to the work.

Leone Sinigaglia’s "Variazioni", based on Schubert’s famous Lied, "Heidenröslein", are a delicate and eloquent tribute to the narrative capacity of the human voice, evoking the charm of musical poetry with grace and mastery.

"Tombeau de Couperin" by Maurice Ravel, with its timeless beauty, offers us not only a sublime musical experience, but also an opportunity to reflect on memory and its importance in the current historical context.

Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda’s "Morceau" is a true theatrical show, full of operatic stylistic features that capture the imagination of the listener and transport the audience into a world of drama and passion.

Finally, the pieces by Arnold Schönberg, as well as celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth, represent a high point of innovation and experimentation, inviting the audience to explore new sonic horizons and embrace the vitality of artistic creation.

In this programme, the oboe and the piano come together in a harmonious celebration of human vocality, taking the audience on an emotional journey through musical centuries and genres, and demonstrating once again the eternal power of singing in the art of music.
