Notes & Reviews:
Experimentum Mundi, perhaps the most important of a series of works from the 1980s, and one of his most often performed, that brought Giorgio Battistelli wide notice, is arguably the most important work in the field of contemporary music in recent decades. In one fell swoop, Mr. Battistelli's pioneering work fulfilled all the artistic aspirations and dreams of his century. In the wake of his various attempts to bridge the gap between life and art, he has ultimately managed to achieve this in his hour-long musical work. This performance of the Experimentum Mundi was recorded in the Auditorium Parco della Musica in May 2013 under the baton of the composer himself. Packaged in a luxury digipak and furnished with an extensive booklet, the Blu-ray extras include a look behind the scenes & Experimentum Mundi Remixed. "The timbral, rhythmic and harmonic variations, created with 'instruments' from everyday life, make this work a unique, unforgettable experience. - Giorgio Pressburger (2005)Notes & Reviews:
