Project and tour graciously sponsored by BPER Banca for its 150th anniversary.
It is not always an obvious matter deciding which new piece to study each time: We try to understand what will be beneficial to us, what type of repertoire we have never approached, which we could explore in more depth, but perhaps more than any of these reasons we look for an idea that will give us butterflies, that feeling you get when you can’t wait to go to an important meeting. It’s because of this that we sometimes need an inspiration that catalyzes our choice. Some time ago we listened to a Pastoral from 1937, an historic recording that testified to a way of making music without inhibitions, or complexes. It seemed as though the symphony was being composed by the musicians in that very moment. The listening of this interpretation (and of many others from that period) fostered in us a desire to try a more liberal reading of the Pastoral than we had done in the past, but more importantly synchronized each of our individual desires. It is not our habit to imitate others’ versions, and we will continue not to do so. On the contrary, we would like to try and approach as unconditioned as possible towards a symphony that more than many others risks becoming trapped in the golden cage of its own (possibly misunderstood) classical purity.
