Pulcinella//XXI - 2020


Pulcinella//XXI - 2020

Mimed musical action for flutes, cello, piano and dancer

Duration: 12’

Commission by Capodimonte Museum - 2019

The work was composed on occasion of exhibition “Napoli, Napoli. Di Lava, porcellana e musica”. It is the result of a research project about Pulcinella’s mask interpreted as ideal typical expression of otherness. On a formal level the opera consists of a game of metamorphic action-reaction between the musical gestures and the choreographic shapes punctuated by the cyclical return of Pergolesi’s theme of Flaminio – already used by Stravinskij in his Pulcinella (1920) – which in this action recurs as cell germ.
