Tracce per brutti con buona memoria [2016]

Tracce per brutti con buona memoria (2006 – 2013)

“Tracce” is a collection of pieces for solo instruments (clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, double bass and voice) I wrote between 1991 and 2002. The aim of the collection was to explore different kinds of virtual polyphony through contrappositions, interpolations and superpositions of well known melodic excerpts of Western tradition with more semantically ‘neutral’ sonic materials.
Tracce per brutti con buona memoria for tenor sax derives from Tracce II for bassoon, thanks to the valuable contribution of David Brutti, which revised the score and the fingerings.

Excerpts used in Tracce per brutti con buona memoria are from the following sources:
W. A. Mozart: K.550 Symphony, first theme of the first movement;
W.A.Mozart: Nozze di Figaro opening theme of the overture;G.Rossini: Barbiere di Siviglia, first theme of the overture; – G.Rossini: GazzaLadra, second and third themes of the overture;
Anonymous (attributed to Haydn): S.Antonio Choral from J. Brahms Variation on a Theme by Haydn
J. Strauss Sr: Radetsky march, first theme;
A. C. Jobin: Corcovado, bossanova and jazz standard;
D. Ellington: Satin Doll, jazz standard
