Between music and words
Written by F.D.S.   

 

ImageThe melologue is a musical genre born in the 18th century (the first example was Rousseau's Pygmalion in 1770)...

 

...in which speech is united to music in a hybrid form of work that has always attracted classical composers in the 19th and 20th centuries. Defined as a melologue is Note sui sillabari, an event which, on the 9th of April, will close the event called "Musica e linguaggi" at Mestre's Toniolo Theatre. The libretto is based on the text of the same name by Goffredo Parise, to whom the spectacle is dedicated.

 

ImageThe music was composed by Marcello Tonolo, a musician of jazz extraction, and Stefano Bellon, a contemporary composer, disciple of Franco Donatoni. The reciting voice is that of Vitaliano Trevisan. Not very different from a melologue is the show which, on the 12th of April, will be performed at the Candiani Cultural Centre: as an absolute premiere for the Veneto (in the ambit of the "Jazz Groove" event), the Paduan writer Massimo Carlotto will present his theatre work Allah's Christians, based on the forthcoming novel of the same title.
