“…The distance separating the composer’s pen from the ears of the listeners is an emotional journey. The audience’s wish, notably of contemporary music, is to comprehend the way of approaching a new work. On the other hand, the composers’ wish is to be understood, welcomed, and anticipated, especially in those precious moments preceding the applause at the end of a performance. So, this time, let’s try: let’s try to go deep inside, going back from the composer’s pen to his mind. Let’s go back that meter of route from the mouth of the hand to the source of creativity, and let’s try to understand the inspiration, the intuitions, and also the emotions that light up Paolo Cavallone’s mind. It is possible to do this with his music, because his scores show a vitality condensed in the form of a poetic language, even in the abstraction of his musical thought…”
