Intensely Icaro Incauto


"The fascination of this sung farewell
– with texts rich in metaphorical references to the classical myth – swelled among the large audience ever since the artists entered the church
and reached silently the central position,
in keeping with the theme of inspired memory. Then it was up to music
and singing: in the deliberate concertante cross-reference of the voices, [...] the notes shone through with evocative echo and soft contrapuntal effects in the well-studied correspondence of music and text.
Our performers were extremely good,
as usual."

Fabio Brisighelli
from Corriere adriatico 26 October 2013

MM: … «Isn’t it a nice surprise having a bit of music on the bus? You could use some background music...»
Driver: «Actually we have it [the radio]. Can you hear it? Or is theirs better?»
MM: «16th-century madrigals are better, right??»
Driver: «Much better. Let those guys sing. We’re going to the cemetery anyway. It’s very fitting.»

From the flash mob of 24 October 2013
