The score work around the famous theme La donna e mobile from Verdi's Rigoletto.

It was a commission for Festival di Bellagio 2011 edition: a only one variation from various composers.

I wrote the first variation very close to original score in melody and harmony. In a second time I had the idea to go on with harmony and instrumentation progressively away from the original score and a final recapitulation in the forth and last variation.





I really want to thanks a lot for this beautiful opportunity, the performance was great, I'm very happy of that.
I hope to collaborate again with you again in the future.

­ amazing energy, funding and collecting works is needed to organize and realize an orchestra such as SCO and all these wonderful concerts, you make the quality of music rise in every musical work and there are not a lot of you out there.

The SCO has been doing very interesting work indeed and certainly worthy of support.
