“Almost celebrating the release[speriamo] definitive from the pandemic emergency, the 2023 edition of Trame Sonore dedicates a relevant and significant space to recent and contemporary music, nourishing and asking for trust in the future of music itself through greater knowledge of its recent past and its present. This opening takes place along two lines that prove to be more useful every day and we would say indispensable. The first consists in not closing recent production within specialized spaces, real “Indian reservations” frequented only by those who are already interested. In fact, they tend to confirm the erroneous commonplace according to which “contemporary music” is “other” than the great Western tradition, when instead it is only its coherent continuation without any kind of discontinuity. The second line consists in not falling into the very frequent and often intellectually dishonest mistake of suddenly passing from the more traditional repertoire to some world premieres or in any case only to very recent pieces, which is often disconcerting for the listener. On the other hand, important works have been included that can only be defined as “contemporary” due to a lexical misunderstanding, as they were composed sixty years ago or more but “perceived” as linguistically contemporary. This allows a perspective vision of the events of musical language that allows us to better arrive at today”. Paolo Fumagalli (mdi ensemble)
