The Music of Salvatore Quasimodo

The ensemble perform the poetry of Salvatore Quasimodo (1901-1968) through a song cycle with commentaries, reflections and abstractions featuring works from throughout his life. Composition and improvisation sit side by side echoing the symbiosis of Quasimodos own work wherein objects become images without losing their identity, and speak with their own voices.

Lore Lixenberg mezzo-soprano
Michael Moore alt sax, klarinet, bas klarinet
Salvoandrea Lucifora trombone
Alex Maguire piano, orgel
Ernst Glerum bas
Yusuf Ahmed slagwerk en percussie

Although Salvatore Quasimodo (1901-1968) is still widely known and studied in Italy, his memory has somewhat faded in the rest of the world. This year, the 50th anniversary of his death, seems a good point at which to revisit and rehear his unique voice. Initially grouped with the Hermetic School of poetry (together with Ungaretti and Montale) Quasimodo nevertheless remained something of an outsider, not being a literary man, but rather a Sicilian, the poor boy who ran away at night / in a skimpy coat with a few lines / of poetry in his pocket. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1959, Quasimodo is concerned with oracle, prayer, myth, exile, childhood, death and solitude, against a background of skies, lands, waters and people. In his poetry the general becomes personal.
The songs and interludes in this piece present the poet in his original Italian with commentaries, reflections and abstractions, and features works from throughout his life. Composition and improvisation sit side by side echoing the symbiosis echoing Quasimodos own work wherein objects become images without losing their identity, and speak with their own voices.
