Notes and Editorial Reviews

With these two compositions, Pierluigi Billone adds new phonic resources to the possibilities of bowed instruments, new technical capacities, new perspectives of inquiry. He even composed works which are not completely comfortable, because they take the performers far from their well-known territory. This reminds us of the importance of researching without compromise, in unexplored territories, with curiosity and confidence. Born in 1960 in Italy, Pierluigi Billone now lives in Vienna. He studied composition with Salvatore Sciarrino and Helmut Lachenmann. His music has been performed by relevant interpreters in festivals such as Wien Modern, Festival d’Automne Paris, Donaueschinger Musiktagen, Wittener Tagen fur neue Kammermusik, and more. Read more His music has been regularly broadcasted from the most important radio stations in and beyond Europe. His works have received international awards such as the Kompositionspreis der Stadt Stuttgart, the Wiener Internationaler Kompositionspreis, and the Kompositionspreis der Ernst-von-Siemens-Musikstiftung.
