Clara Iannotta - A Failed Entertainment
Italian composer Clara Iannotta (born 1983) was a guest of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD / Artists-in-Berlin Program in 2013. This the first CD dedicated to her work.
Her compositions are marked by a particular intrinsic ‘theatricality’, in the sense of the physicality of sound, its inner emotion, its excitement, its instrumental genesis out of the silence; the sound is not separated from the gesture that produces it, and is presented in the context of each different instrumental structure. This explains why Iannotta prefers to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration. Performed by Ensemble Intercontemporain conducted by Matthias Pintscher, Ensemble Recherche with Melise Mellinger and Barbara Maurer, Talea Ensemble, Orchestre des Èlèves du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris conducted by Tito Ceccherini, Quatuor Diotima, Ensemble Garage with Richard Haynes, and Trio Catch. Includes booklet in German and English.
