“Consummate artist and refined teacher, Salvatore Sciarrino is universally recognised as one of the most original and influential voices of our time” – so reads the motivation for the award pronounced by Ivan Fedele, Director of the Venice Biennale, who goes on: “Sciarrino has dedicated his existence to the art of composing with a spirit of incessant inquiry and invention that have led him to uncover an extraordinary world of sound thereby giving a decisive impulse to the renewal of contemporary music and demonstrating how music, in order for it to be renewed and rediscovered, has to step outside its historicised form and become a listening experience in which the spectator is at the centre of mysterious and almost ancestral phenomena”.

Luigi Dallapiccola: Ballet version of Canti di prigionia in Toulouse
Premiere on April 13 in Toulouse.
Choreographer Kader Belarbi has created a ballet based on Luigi Dallapiccola’s I Canti di prigionia called Mur Mur. It will be premiered on April 13 at the Eglise Saint-Pierre des Cuisines in Toulouse. The ballet ensemble consists of male dancers from the Ballet du Capitole, of which Kader Belarbi has been director since 2012.
The choreographer considers I Canti di Prigionia as a powerful, expressive and lyrically rich piece of music, like a lament that reflects the human condition. In his choreography, the tortuous movements of the dancers express the secret truths of the imprisoned memories.

On 4 March at the 2016 Biennale Musiques en scène in Lyon the Orchestre National de Lyon will perform the world premiere of Daniele Ghisi’s Any Road. Written for orchestra, electronics and video, the work will be conducted by Olari Elts. The electronics have been realised by GRAME (Centre National de Création Musicale). The video, conceived by Boris Labbé, begins with a projection of the old videogame Pong. The sounds of the bouncing ball and those of the animation are broadcast by two loudspeakers placed on each side of the orchestra. The orchestra itself, at the beginning an unwelcome guest, gains more and more the sonic space in the course of the composition until it eventually takes the main sonic role. Any Road, is, as Daniele Ghisi says, a playful piece, a diary of a journey, a divertissement. The work is a join commission GRAME-French Ministry of Culture. On 5 March, in Paris (Centre Pompidou), the French premiere of  An Experiment with Time, for ensemble, video and electronics, will be performed by the Divertimento Ensemble conducted by Sandro Gorli. An Experiment with Time was commissioned by Ircam-Centre Pompidou and the Divertimento Ensemble in collaboration with Ulysses European Network.

Since its first performance in 1981, Giorgio Battistelli’s Experimentum Mundi for actor, 16 artisans, a chorus of female voices, and one percussionist has been performed more than 200 times by major festivals and theatres in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and North America. In 2008 the composer wrote SINFONIA da Experimentum Mundi in which an ensemble of 16 instruments was added to the original instrumentation. Now the composer has realized a new version of SINFONIA for 30 musicians which replaces the ensemble one. It will be premiered on February 9, 2016 at the KlangZeit Festival in Münster for the first time.
The performers include an actor (who recites texts drawn from Diderot and d’Alembert’s Enciclopédie), 16 artisans (knife grinders, pastry makers, builders, blacksmiths, stone masons, carpenters, cobblers, and coopers), a chorus of female voices, one percussionist and an orchestra of 30 musicians. For this premiere, actor Hannes Demming with the Münster Symphony Orchestra and local artisans will be conducted by Fabrizio Ventura.
