    Programme notes
    All my compositions share a common feature: the musical "gesture". This can appear in
    different ways. It can be short, as at the beginning of this piece, and then can become
    more and more complex and, for example, it can eventually turn into a melody.
    The four instruments involved here are not just instruments with which to produce and
    articulate sounds, but they are "characters" who act and interact through "gestures", in a
    sort of speech made with musical figures and throughout a sort of rhapsodic narration.
    Strade della città tumultuosa is like a tumultuous history where different situations occur
    and different emotions are involved. And none of them get lost.
