    I mostly like the Noli for its fascinating sonorities and rhythmic vitality. What does it mean, Noli ? Any information at all would be useful because I have no idea how to categorize this or what to write about it.

    The BGV aria I just do not understand, like the other BGV pieces. Bach seen through a lens of broken glass. I cannot honestly say I see the beauty or purpose of it.

    Roberto, if you intend to post the complete BGV< why not do it in one posting ? That would be far less work for us.

    BTW - You did not get back to me about this truncated BGV item. I PM'ed you about it.

    Noli & BGV

    Dear Chris:
    NOLI in latin is NOT. Noli is dedicated to Maurizio Pollini. I composed Noli in 1995. It is a single piece, not structuralist like BGVs.
    The BGVs was composed in 1991-1992; I composed the first series for Accademia Chigiana festival in Siena. The BGVs are dedicated to Franco Donatoni (my teacher). In each Variation I elaborate the gesture from Bach-Goldberg. Bach elaborated a ground not the Aria; I have elaborated each variation, each musical gesture, each harmonic polarization... The BGVs was awarded by Accaemia Chigiana (Diploma d'Onore); in the commission there were: Donatoni, Ennio orricone, Achucarro, Dusapin e Boulez. My composition style is postweberniano but also postminimalist. Sorry for my terrible english!
    ciao,
    Rob

    Your English is not so terrible, in any case bettter than my Italian :wink:
    Participating in a forum like this could be a way to improve your English skills.

    I'll put Noli up the site tonight, unless someone else does it first. So it means "NOT". A strange title ! Because it seems a positive and life-affirming piece and not as arid to the ear as some of your post-webern compositions. Did Pollini ever play it ?

    If illustrious musicians like Donatoni and Boulez think highly of the BGV it must be good, at least from a theoretical point of view. Whether many people actually like this rigorous kind of music, I have my doubts. In recent years, composers have collectively realized that it's tunes the people want, not intellectual excercises. These pieces come as a bit of a shock after your luminous Chopin, Bach and Scarlatti recordings.
