Description: The works by Pedini and Ugoletti on the famous La Follia theme are full of contrasts: eclectic, with occasional excursions into jazz and related popular music, they present a kaleidoscope of colors, complex dance rhythms and orchestral glitter. Complementing La Follia here is another neo-Baroque work of Pedini’s, a set of three substantial pieces for string orchestra with a central adagio and a finale dedicated to the art of the neoclassical painter Antonio Canova. You’d never guess that both composers studied under Franco Donatoni and also, in Pedini’s case, Salvatore Sciarrino! KLK String Orchestra; Ferdinando Nazaro.
