Amore e Simpatia: New music for viola d’amore with Marco Fusi
New Horizons Concert Series
College of Performing Arts
Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music in the College of Performing Arts
Italian violinist/violist Marco Fusi is a passionate advocate for the music of our time. The program explores the world of a unique and rare period instrument, viola d'amore, as the instrument emerges and shines through the composers' imaginations today. Viola d'amore has the ability to morph, adapting to every work's particular sonic world, allowing the creators to explore uncharted acoustic and electronic soundscapes.
The program pays homage to two important Italian composers of the 20th/21st centuries—Giacinto Scelsi and Salvatore Sciarrino—including a new Capriccio for violin by Sciarrino.
