“KILLING THE CLASSICS” VITO RANUCCI LIVE CONCERT
“The word that first springs to mind while listening to Vito Ranucci’s
Killing the Classics is transfiguration. It is not about revisiting,
commemorating, transcribing, or alliterating. Ranucci starts with the
classics (Bach, Mozart, Chopin, Ravel) but he does not kill them! (…) You
get the sharp impression that the author is fully aware of the true sense of
traditio, that is, handing something over for reuse”
– Girolamo De Simone
The beauty of the classics is given back to us hybridized. “Killing the
Classics” is both a brand-new release and a live concert by one of the most
eclectic of today's contemporary musicians: Vito Ranucci.
Regarded as one of the greats in Italy, Vito Ranucci (Naples, 1973) is a
composer, arranger and saxophonist who creates music characterized by an
intricate network of biographical, literary and pictorial associations. The
compositional quality raises itself from the sphere of mere music to that of
poetry and philosophy.
Ranucci's music resists being labeled: acoustic, electronic and noise merge
into a unique color palette in which the tools are the parameters of
symphonic harmony, structure and dynamics. Tradition meets nu-jazz and
orchestral techniques are applied to dj-type settings. The sacred and the
profane intertwine, and the past and the future cease to be antipodes.
Outstanding works from Ranucci's discography include: Distanze/Distances
(Harmonia Mundi, 1998) with his own band Neroitalia explores the roots and
sets the sound of his music to come; Il Giardino delle Delizie/The Garden of
Delights (CNI, 2006) was inspired by the work of the Flemish painter
Hieronymus Bosch, represents an example of ‘program music’ with a modern,
urban slant, and was praised by critics for its innovative, visionary
quality; Dialects (EmmeKappa, 2012) focuses on globalization from an
unconventional perspective and is bursting with hypnotic charm and
Vito Ranucci is also an acclaimed composer for cinema, theater, museum
exhibitions, and Italian television (RAI). He has worked with, among others,
Mario Monicelli, Renato Giordano, Roberto De Simone, Pino De Vittorio, Lina
Wertmüller, and Renato Carpentieri.
