Fabio VacchiIn Città di Castello on 1st September the new piece by Fabio Vacchi, Memoria italiana for vocal quartet, will be premiered by the Hilliard Ensemble. The performance of the work, which will take place at San Francesco Church, is part of the 42nd edition of the Festival delle Nazioni commissioner of the piece. The idea for the work came to the composer after listening to the recordings of some folk songs made in the fifties by the ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Vacchi has always maintained a very close and passionate relationship with folk music and tradition, which in this case has manifested itself in the use of a number of cues present in the songs and in the elaboration of them in a highly original manner.
