Fabio VacchiOn 12th May (additional performance on 13th) the world premiere of Fabio Vacchi’s Tagebuch der Empörung will be performed in Leipzig by the Gewandhaus Orchestra under the direction of Riccardo Chailly.

The gestation of this piece began in the days following 11th September 2001 when Fabio Vacchi, determined to give expression to his indignation at the notorious terrorist attack (and the various reprisals that have followed), set about writing a symphonic work – a work which at the time he did not complete but from which he drew material for two other subsequent works: Diario dello sdegno (premiered in 2002 by the Filarmonica della Scala under the direction of Riccardo Muti) and Terra Comune, a work for choir and orchestra on a text by Franco Marcoaldi (composed for the inauguration of the Auditorium del Parco della Musica in Rome and performed by the choir and orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia under the direction of Myun Wung Chung).

Tagebuch der Empörung comes about from a request by Riccardo Chailly to Fabio Vacchi to take up again and complete the original, ethically inspiring creative project.
