for Symphonic Orchestra
|World Premiere:||17/09/2012 by the Solistes Européens Orchestra under the direction of Christoph Koenig, at Auditorium of the Philharmonie – Luxembourg-City (LU)|
|About:||It’s often the chance that generates the craziest and most ambitious ideas:
I was speaking with a biology student friend about the difficulties we were encountering in the work / studies at that time.
She told me about her exam about Meiosis and Mitosis (two cell division processes).
I told her about a work, of the French composer Henri Dutilleux, that I was analyzing…
We realized pretty fast that were speaking in “different languages”.
I remember him saying: “… Meiosis is for me what contemporary music is for you…”
A few months later I got the exceptional opportunity to compose a piece for the “Solistes Éuropéens” orchestra, based in Luxembourg, and with the kind support of the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture.
