Riccardo Nova’s Wav Alif Ha Da 

World premiere of Riccardo Nova’s new piece.

On March 26 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, as part of the concert series Contemporanea, the world premiere of Riccardo Nova’s Wav Alif Ha Da for guitar, percussion, and tape will be performed by Luca Nostro and Flavio Tanzi.
Nova's title, Wav Alif Ha Da, spells out the Arabic word Wahid (one of the 99 names of Allah) which refers to the singularity - the oneness - of God.
In the Abjad order of the Arabic alphabet each letter had a corresponding numeric value. Wahid's value is 19 and, indeed, appears 19 times in the Koran. Nova's piece points to this impossible mathematical equivalence which his work (by using a rhythmic formule of 19 unity) is based on.

I funerali dell’anarchico Acciarito in Brussels

In 1897 Pietro Acciarito, a Florentine anarchist, attempted to stab King Umberto I. He was arrested, put on trial, and condemned to a life of imprisonment. Later, after being put in solitary confinement, he went mad and ended his days in a prison mental asylum. When, in 2009, the Venice Biennale commissioned a new work from Mauro Lanza, the composer drew inspiration from the figure of Acciarito, creating the piece I funerali dell’anarchico Acciarito for intonarumori (experimental musical instruments invented by Luigi Russolo) and sound objects. The piece will be revived on March 3 at the Kaitheater in Brussels with a performance, in Belgian premiere, by the percussionists of Ensemble Ictus under the direction of Georges-Elie Octors.
I funerali dell’anarchico Acciarito has also been performed several times since October 2014 as part of a tour of Ballet Mekanique, a choreographed ballet conceived by Tom Pauwels (Ensemble Ictus’s guitarist) together with the dancer and choreographer Inga Hákonardóttir.  As of February 2015, the ballet has been performed in Lisbon, Antwerp, Brussels, Gent and Lille.

On February 8, Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists will perform the world premiere of Silvia Colasanti’s Preludio, Presto e Lamento in Foligno, Italy. The piece was commissioned by the Amici della Musica di Foligno and dedicated to the ensemble by the composer. Colasanti writes that the ‘work, written for the viola - an instrument whose dark and warm colour has always fascinated me - rests on a three-part structure: a Preludio, rich in contrasts, a Presto, characterised by a relentless rhythm, and a final Lamento, in which the viola traces a long arabesque on a carpet of veiled archaic harmonies.’  Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists will present a second performance of Preludio, Presto e Lamento in Milan on February 9 in the Sala Verdi at the Milan Conservatory as part of the Serate Musicali.
