Description:
Program note (English): The musical and visual imagery behind 'una Cicala innamorata' was conceived listening to the sounds in a summer field in Akiyoshidai, Japan. The perfect orchestration of rhythm, tone color and melodic motive was disturbed only by the listener. The soundscape evoked echos of Arcadia, the pastoral paradise of escape and (oft unconsummated) desire, conceived and recreated throughout European history. The god Pan is a central figure in Arcadia, spending his time chasing after nymphs, playing his pipes and lording over shepherds, driving them to bouts of pendemonium from time to time. The instrumentation of the Nieuw Ensemble seemed ideal for music on this subject. The scene is set in a static ambiance, out of which small episodes of interaction follow between various combinations of instruments, using two melodic modes in a free manner. The rhythmic musical material is a translation of insect sounds heard in Akiyoshidai and is based on the numeric relations in symmetrical,
mathematical squares. - CHRISTINA VIOLA OOREBEEK
