Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Praise of philosophy in the form of a Decalogue” is an opera-reading conceived by Rosario Diana with the aim - theorized since 2011 and later expounded in one of his books - to disseminate philosophical knowledge by means other than the customary ones (lessons, conference, essay, monographs). This work has been performed several times in public, at times preceded or followed by debates on the topics addressed by the text and by the work in its entirety. The score, which the two composers were commissioned to write, provides for an ensemble with a percussions section (vibraphone, bass drum and thundersheet) and a supply of resounding instruments and objects (spring drum, vibra-tone, maracas, wind chimes, stones struck again each other and Read more chains shaken in clay jars). The music is the result of research that has above all delved into timbre, it interweaves with the text, enhancing its contents and internal dynamism, superimposing and intersecting the various levels of discourse, which entrusted to two different funcional components: that of the philosopher (who is onstage and soeaks imaginarily to a polis) and the vocalactors' section (to whom are assigned the philosophical and literary citations quoted in the libretto). Several renowned musicians and ensembles have come together to make this recording a reality, including Ensemble Interface, Quartetto Prometo, Lucio Miele, Ruben Mattia Santorsa, and others.
