Program Notes

With this composition I have tried to reproduce, in an abstract way, the different aspects of the actual life. One will discover alternatively spiritual and secular aspects - the never ceasing boisterous agitation, the electronically disturbed society and, from time to time, the modern romanticism of the end of the twentieth century.
