Poesiole - Hommage à Silvio Palmieri
Silvio Palmieri died before his time in 2018. He had for 25 years enjoyed a special relationship with the ECM+, which premiered a number of his works, including his sole opera, Elia, in 2004. His legacy includes an extensive body of brilliant works that were imbued with his profound love for the piano and the voice together with an innate sense of instrumental colour, the more powerful, the better!
On the program, two piano Preludes– including a world premiere– but also Elia (excerpt, 2004), Poesiole Notturne (1996) and Vers ce silence (1995) performed by the ECM+, the Ensemble Paramirabo and pianist Louise Bessette, will reveal some of this composer’s mastery, from different angles and periods of his life.
