THE ANCIENT AND THE NEW

ORATORIO DI SAN FILIPPO NERI

APOLOGIA OF THE QUARTET IV

mdi ensemble

 

Lorenzo Gentili-Tedeschi violin

Lorenzo Derinni violin

Paolo Fumagalli viola

Giorgio Casati cello

This programme matches Janáček’s intense rhapsodic character to a Quartet by Holliger linked to historic Viennese avant-garde, Malipiero’s stylized attempt to restore an archaic cantabile quality with his third quartet Cantari alla madrigalesca to an ecstatic fragment by Ferneyhough, and a lavish post-modern piece by American composer Geroge Crumb. Mdi ensemble, founded in Milan in 2002, works with prominent composers, re-visits the contemporary canon, and proposes first performances dedicated to young promising artists.
