Notes & Reviews:
Giacinto Scelsi was much more than a composer. He was a poet, a writer, and an intellectual. Perhaps one of the greatest of the twentieth century. He is best remembered for writing music based only around one pitch, which he altered through microtonal oscillations, harmonic allusions, and changes in timbre and dynamics. Here the Longobardi-Rabbia-Roccato trio receives his message and masterfully carries it forward, in an extremely 'original' way and at the same time deeply inspired by him. In fact, several tracks on this release, among them the first one, In Nomine - are exemplary from that point of view.
