La musica delle forme - Concerto in diretta web con il pianista Antonio Artese

antonioartese concertostreaming3.12.20

The works of artist, Marino Marini, exerted a very strong impression upon me from the first moment I ventured into the eponymous Museum in Florence. Here, the force of the materials and the effects of history are present in every corner of the former Church of San Pancrazio, where the collection resides. Recently, during a tranquil visit, I observed these works of art once again. They are imposing in their purity and in the dynamism of the medium shaped by Marini. I listened, trying to connect the forms and the space they occupied to a sense of time and an impression of sound. The culmination of my journey is a suite of 7 pieces: a prelude, a postlude, and five compositions inspired by as many sculptures. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to record this concert in the thirteenth century crypt of the museum itself, an austere and somber place. Alongside the piano there is another work by Marini, entitled “Composizione Ideale” Ideal Composition (1971). With her friendly presence, and serendipitous title, she helped me to unravel the inner thread of my introspection and transform it into music. - Antonio Artese
