Francesconi, Luca – “Wander/ Cobalt, Scarlet” – [Agora]

Cousin Mary   4/11/2018   A Library, CD

Italian composer Luca Francesconi was invited to a festival in Helsinki in 2001. “Wanderer” had been composed in 1998, “Cobalt, Scarlet” was inspired by a sunrise in Oslo in 2000.  Both are performed by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.  On the difficult side of modern classical music, but it might seem cinematic because of a possible similarity to Gyorgy Ligeti’s works.
