Composition Commission issued to Ivan Fedele
Makrokosmos Quartet, Geneva, Switzerland
The members of Makrokosmos quartet collaborate with composers interested in their instrumental formation, which associates a percussive piano with a melodic percussion.
The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundations supports the commission of a piece for two pianos and two percussions to Ivan Fedele for the Makrokosmos Quartet. The quatuor is very close to Fedele’s musical aesthetics and appreciates the way he composes for piano and percussion.
Premiere: April 27, 2013
