Dedicated to Emanuele Torquati and Francesco Dillon
This short composition lives from the interaction between cello and piano – a kind of discourse which encompasses a broad variety of expressions and reactions. Besides the obvious dialogic aspect, both players with their individual instruments are part of an uncommon "hyper-instrument" which they shape and modify together.
