Wtymo uca Francesconi, born inhas emerged as one of the leading Italian composers of the generation after Berio and Nono.

Review This Title Share on Facebook. The biggest, most ambitious and most memorable of those is Etymo, which takes a collection of fragments from Baudelaire’s Fleurs du Mal, sets and atomises them for a soprano soloist and enmeshes the voice in teeming, febrile textures spun from an instrumental ensemble with real-time digital processing.

This is strong stuff for sure but ultimately quite rewarding. The piece certainly sounds terrific when heard as SACD. The composer has an anecdote concerning this work for guitar and ensemble. Etymo is the most substantial both in length and in content. Usually ships in 24 hours.

He is aided by brilliantly handled electronics. I was a bit unsure about the last work Animus for trombone and electronics; but I must now admit that I find this a fairly fascinating, if a tad too long work. Ensemble InterContemporain Number of Discs: When listening to this rather breath-taking – in both meanings of the words – piece one finds it hard to believe that there is just one francseconi player at work. It is not difficult to understand why.

Etymo – Barbara Hannigan

Notes and Editorial Reviews I doubt that these performances will ever be bettered. Featured Popular Ensembles Academy of St. A fuoco again unfolds in a series of contrasted episodes by turns dreamy, meditative and aggressive, the whole expressed in vivid instrumental colours and rhythms.

The etyno opens with an electronic drone of indeterminate sounds giving way to a brief outburst from the ensemble. His music is certainly complex and quite frsncesconi but it remains first and foremost strongly expressive and often quite beautiful. It is a brilliantly scored, colourful piece full of nice instrumental touches and lively rhythms, although it opens and ends francseconi a rather subdued manner.

At times these are enhanced by electronics. Luca Francesconi is one of the most prominent Italian composer of his generation with a substantial and varied output to his credit.

Francesconi: Etymo, Da Capo, A Fuoco, Animu

At times, too, song turns into plain speech, but song prevails. A pupil of Berio and Stockhausen, Francesconi is less well known in the UK than, for instance, Salvatore Sciarrino, who is nine years older, but as this collection of ensemble pieces shows, he has a genuinely distinctive musical personality, and the knack of creating sonorities of real immediacy and dramatic power. Animus is an electronics-based piece too, with a solo trombone caught in a sound web of its reflections, while A Fuoco pits a solo guitar against an ensemble in a study of musical memory.


I doubt that these performances will ever be bettered. I franxesconi still not quite sure whether I like it. The title, Etymo as in etymology is about the search for the origin and development of language. Inwhile studying with Berio in Tanglewood, Francesconi showed him a piece for guitar and ensemble that he was just writing. With the exception of Da Capo, for nine instruments, fromthe francesconu here date from the mids.

The climaxes are truly shattering, even when heard on simple stereo equipment.

The sounds are haunting, seductive, intensely vivid; it’s a shame that the accompanying notes don’t match the clarity of the music.

This piece is not unlike Etymo in that it, too, develops from raw breathing noises that will later metamorphose into dtymo.

The perfect gift for the classical music enthusiasts! The other works were all composed at about the Franxesconi more same time: The release under review provides a good idea of his output although all the works recorded here are already some ten or twenty years old.

From then on, the song will unfold in a big arch, This comprises a frsncesconi of contrasted episodes mostly characterised by an often dangerously exposed soprano part and vivid instrumental colours.
