MAGNIFICAT – ONDANOMALA SUITE for bicycle and Orchestra – VIVALDI. IN MEMORIAM

– Brilliant Classic, 2015
– Orchestre Lyrique et Symphonique de Nancy
– Flavio Emilio Scogna, conductor
– Carlo Guaitoli, piano

Cristian Carrara (born in 1977) is a highly successful Italian composer, writing in an eclectic post modernist style. Inspired by the minimalist movement, the new spirituality of Pärt and orientalism he created his own personal musical language in which his Italian feeling for harmoniously flowing melodies is mostly apparent.
This new recording contains the Magnificat for pedal piano and orchestra, In Memoriam Vivaldi (its solemn and mysterious atmosphere inspired by Vivaldi’s Sinfonia al Santo Sepulcro), and the Suite per bicicletta and orchestra, written for the 2013 UCI Road World Championships, in which the kinetics of cyclists are captured in a strong pattern of changing rhythms and tempi.
Excellent performances conducted by Flavio Emilio Scogna.

Faust Bojan, also called Faustus, is the protagonist of a German folk tale that has been used as the basis for numerous works of fantasy. Faustus, scholar eager for knowledge, unable to settle for the academic knowledge, makes a pact with the demon Mephistopheles: absolute knowledge and the services of Lucifer’s emissary at the price of his soul. Maria Cristina Giambruno makes ad adaptation of Faust from the work of the Bohemian Guidus Bonnesck, that inserts in the history Kasper, traditional character of puppetry in central and Northern Europe. He, shrewd Faustus’s servant, will succeed where his master will instead have failed: cheat the devil.

“The musics for this Faust have little of gloomy, demonic. They are quite a journey, with different colors, in the universe of man. That Faust that it often resembles us, suggested me to write the music very close to each of us. Musics that I hope create closeness, sometimes identification with the characters that follow one another on stage. Because, after all, the story of Faust speaks of man in general, and of all its weaknesses. So this music. All characters have their own musical theme. Except Mephistopheles. That has no face. Or rather, it has many faces. And for this he hasn’t a his “music”. He hides behind various musical “faces”. Mephistopheles is changing, mimetic, undefined and indefinable. So Mephistopheles can not have his own musical profile. I chose to write musics that are a cross between stage music, commentary, and music typical of the musical theater, and more present, more thematically defined.” ( Cristian Carrara)
