Talea Ensemble plays the US premiere of Fausto Romitelli's "An Index Of Metals"

I'm very happy to be part of the US premiere of Fausto Romitelli's masterpiece "An Index of Metals" with the Talea ensemble! The concert will be part of the Bang on a Can Marathon at the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center, come check it out, it's free!


"The aim of An Index of Metals is to turn the secular form of opera into an experience of total perception, plunging the spectator into an incandescent matter that is both luminous and sonorous, a magma of flowing sounds, shapes and colours, with no narrative but that of hypnosis, possession and trance. It is a lay ritual, rather like the light shows of the 1960s or today’s rave parties in which space, having assumed a solid form through the volume of sound and visual saturation appears to twist into a thousand anamorphoses."
