Program Notes

Kindara Overture by Antonio Giacometti is the introduction to an ideal opera (Kindara), where the main subject is life in Brazilian favelas. We listen to textures full of counterpoint, conflicting with moments of rarefied desert and lyrical abandon, in a style, as in the main part of last Giacometti’s production, that hybridizes Western composition technique of last 40 years with the polyrhythmic African soul of samba and melodies from the the religious Umbanda rites from northwest Brazil. An eccentric writing indeed, if compared with the usual band literature.
