The ARTS series which joins contemporary music and art offers a new outstanding
achievement with the recording of Salvatore Sciarrino's Aspern Suite for soprano and
instrumental ensemble illustrated by the front cover of the French painter Daniel Buren.
Aspern Suite is a fascinating work or better a musical exercise over traditional texts and over
the famous librettos of Lorenzo Da Ponte for Mozart's operas. Susanna Rigacci gives the
voice for this difficult work, whilst the soloists of Contempoartensemble (two flutes,
percussions, viola, cello and harpsichord) produce the intriguing instrumental background.
Daniel Buren's "Encres sur papier" gives an ideal relationship between this musical work
and contemporary art. Buren is worldwide renowned as a leading exponent of the essential
art, made by geometrical figures and colours. Mauro Ceccanti and his Contempoartensemble
confirm to be excellent performers of 20th Century music. Their productions, which ranged
from Schoenberg to Berio and Boulez have been warmly received from the specialised critic
and even awarded in several countries. Their next production will involve Steve Reich's
music and will inspire the German painter Gerard Richter.
This production will shortly be available also in square metal can in the "ARTS Collector
