    Hello everybody, I wrote this Requiem 20 years ago, but only recently I was able to record it. I am not so satisfied the way it has been performed, but this is the only recording I own. If you have time to waste, I would be glad to have your opinion. Thanks

  • Leonardo, I am surprised none of the German state radio stations have chosen to perform this. It's an amazing, magnificent and colorful work. This recording really shows it off. Do submit it to them!

  • I will add to Noel's accolade. This is a stunning work, fantastische, a rich kaleidoscopic tapestry that is one of the most moving requiems I've ever heard. Do follow Noel's advice about performance, maybe even a CD by Naxos or someone. Have you submitted this to Schott? Oxford? Baerenreiter? You should. It is compelling! Many thanks for sharing it with us!

    Thank you very much for listening and for your kind comments! In the last 20 years I sent the full score to many orchestras. Most of them did not answer. Supposedly they receive every day lot of music proposals from many composers and musicians all over the world and they don’t have the possibility to check everything with the due attention. Some less important orchestra answered and asked up to 70.000 Euro in order to make a recording. Finally I found a little young orchestra and a small choir (only 12 singers) in Italy who were available to record the whole work for a more suitable price. I never contacted till now radio stations or publishers, but…why not? I could try. I could send an Email to Schott, Naxos and also some german radio stations (any suggestion here?) inviting them to open the link on Youtube.
    Apologize for my not perfect English.
  • Do let us know what action you take and what develops!

    I imagine that there are many of us here who would humbly sing in the choir for your creation: I know I would enjoy singing it. Wonderful work, and thank you for sharing it with us.
