LEONARDO PIERDOMENICO

Programme 24-25:

THE CONCEPT
"The apartment on the Spanish Steps was ideal: I spent all day at the piano or at my desk, and I didn’t leave my pen until the setting sun had colored the pines on Monte Pincio golden. There I worked on my Second Piano Sonata and the Choral Symphony The Bells».
Sergej Rachmaninov wrote these lines referring to the prolific months he spent in Rome in 1913, where he found the perfect conditions to start working on his majestic Sonata op.36. In those lines he also mentions the light of the sun and the pines: the same light Liszt tried to put in music together with water in the pre-impressionist "Les jeaux d’eau à la Villa d’Este" and the same pines Respighi described in "Pines of Rome". I made an arrangement myself for piano solo - very humbly- of this monumental symphonic poem (based on the author’s reduction for piano duo), hoping to bring to life a little bit of that Roman magic with just 88 keys.
