In this segment of the Vince Anello show, we will make a quick turn from politics and local issues that we normally discuss. Because of tribal politics and a local issues, we sometimes overlook some of the great things that do happen in our area. We have many great artists, musicians and writers.
Music is food for the soul. Our guest today is Cesare Valentini, a composer from Florence, Italy and studied in Milan. He is visiting our area. Some of his work will be featured this Sunday, October 21, 7:00pm at St. Anthony of Padua Church behind Buffalo City Hall.

30 days time-out for 2 violins and piano will be premiered at Chromatic Club Buffalo

The piece is based on the book of Antonella Di Giulio and will be performed by her at the piano and by Noemi and Efrem Bekteshi at the violins. The concert will be at Chromatic Club in Buffalo in October 14th at 3 p.m.

From Antonella Di Guilio:
“When I started writing my journal, in January 2017, I had no idea that what I was writing was going to become a book at one point.
At first I only thought that the journal of the time-out was simply a cute gift idea for the person who was imposing the time-out at that point.
Then I realized that it was too interesting and emotionally challenging for the book to remain just a gift idea. And the story slowly became more intricate and deep.
It was a search for the truth on my end.

In my musical journey I have been taught to search for the truth in any work of art, which is the highest possible level of knowledge we can reach through honesty and integrity in our work as artists and through the expression of the purest moral values as human being.

Now that story has inspired something more than just written words and painting.

30 Days Time-out is becoming Truth.
And there is nothing better than music to express the truth.

Come and listen to Antonella, Noemi Bekteshi and Efrem Bekteshi performing the premiere of “30 Days Time-out” composed by Cesare Valentini on October 14, at the Chromatic Club Buffalo’s opening recital.”

A brief description

The Agnus Dei of Valentini, in this concert premiered in the version for string orchestra, was written in 2012 for chorus and, in the original version, has obtained in recent years consents of public and critics. The piece, which was the first performed in Mexico City and was also performed in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, won international awards and was selected by an international commission (Foro Internacional de Música Nueva Manuel Enriquez UNAM Mexico) as one of the significant choral works in the 21st century. The Belgian critic Frans Waltmans, who listened to the composition performed by the Tuumben Paax Choir, wrote: “the high quality of the composition, full of atonal colors, has meant that the audience enjoyed in some moments an almost heavenly perfection.” Music is, as the text predicts, tripartite. There are three different moments that rhetorically express the verses but they have a common origin. Everything comes from the first three bars that lead to a very strong dissonance even if softened by the internal voices, c sharp to the bass and natural d to the soprano, which represents the bowing of the man’s head in front of God for the sins committed invoking to Him the forgiveness . This dissonance is resolved, cleaned up by God, which embraces man, giving him relief like a father, but this constant, the ninth minor interval, is a characteristic of the whole composition. The version for string orchestra has been recently transcribed by the author specifically for this concert.
