Notes and Editorial Reviews

Born in Sanremo in 1965, Giovanni Verrando is one of the principal representatives of the young generation of Italian composers. After studying with Franco Donatoni, he worked on music informatics and composition with Tristan Murail and Brian Ferneyhough in the Cursus Musical at Ircam in Paris. This recording, which assembles his principal pieces for ensemble and electronics, gives us an insight into the current creative tendencies in Italy: a very Italian combination of lyricism and elegance. The album takes its title from Dulle Griet, the famous painting by Brueghel representing the mouth of Hell.
