GIACINTO SCELSI (1905-1988): Trilogia - The Three Ages of Man (Triphon, Dithome and Ygghur), Voyages.
Catalogue Number: 12T041
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Comprising Triphon (1956), Dithome (1957) and the Sanskrit-inspired Ygghur (1965), the “Trilogy” is still to some extent dependent on the Expressionist language Scelsi had learnt from disciples of Schoenbergian serialism, yet already personal to him, and now a classic of 20th-century solo cello repertoire. The album is completed by the two fleeting movements of Voyages from 1974, which deploy disembodied harmonics and other techniques familiar from Scelsi’s music. Marco Simonacci (cello).
