Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Inspired in Gustave Flaubert’s theatre text, La Tentation de Saint Antoine (referring to Saint Anthony of Egypt, also known as Saint Anthony Anchorite or Anthony of the Desert, founder of Christian monasticism, who lived between 251 and 356), this piece, Música de cena para Santo Antão, doesn’t aim to illustrate musically the plot as such, of Flaubert’s work. It rather refers to the three places where the theatrical piece’s action takes place. As all sceneries described by Flaubert, these places are animated by their very own and eloquent life. And so we have three “pictures” in form of a suite - the City of Alexandria, Mount Colzum (close to Suez), and the rocks around the sea monsters, which appear in the piece’s final. They serve as an argument to explore pure musical elements, which succeed, succinctly, in the following order of appearance: timbre, melody and rhythm.
