Seconda Rassegna GigliThe Second International Festival of Composition “Alfeo Gigli”, promoted by the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna in collaboration with the Association Octandre-Musica Attuale and the Associazione Giovanile Musicale (A.Gi.Mus) in Bologna, proposed the execution of 180 compositions by as many Italian and foreign authors which were performed throughout 17 concerts, from 26 January to 13 December 200 at the Sala Mozart of the Accademia Filarmonica, on the occasion of the events for Bologna as European Capital of Culture. The performances were entrusted to the Ensemble Octandre and to the Ensemble Musica Attuale. Moreover, fourteen CDs with a considerable part of the works in the programme were released. Some of the scores were selected and performed on other occasions and some others were published by the publishing house Agenda, by Giampaolo Salbego.
The compositions by Italian authors came from 18 different Italian regions, while the compositions by foreign authors came from 31 different countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, China, South Korea, Cuba, France, Germany, Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Libya, Mexico, Norway, Holland, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, United States, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine.
The initiative, unique in Italy in its genre, intends to promote the activity of Italian composers, thus giving an image of the great variety of today’s composing experiences, free from any form of prejudices or merit judgement: there emerges an extremely manifold overall picture, where beside extremely avant-garde composing languages are more traditional languages, in a great surprising variety of proposals which are evidence of the remarkable liveliness of Italian composers at the threshold of the third millennium.
