Even the briefest moments can burn themselves into memory, inspiring feelings that last a lifetime. On FLEETING REALMS VOL 2, works in chamber settings tap into our innermost thoughts and emotions, stirring the senses and sparking imagination. Featured on this album is Sonata per violino e violoncello in due spazi from composer Fabio Antonelli, a lush piece for string duo with delicate moments suspended in silence.
Today, Fabio is our featured artist in “The Inside Story,” a blog series exploring the inner workings and personalities of our composers and performers. Read on to learn his draw to the North Pole and his fondness for the delicate moments on FLEETING REALMS VOL 2.
Who were your first favorite artists growing up?
My favorites are Beethoven, Mozart, some works of Erik Satie, and the more simple and short works of all the greatest composers through the age of Debussy.
If you could spend creative time anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
The North Pole maybe, too cold but perfect to forget all thoughts and to forget all rules about composition and counterpoint.
What was your favorite musical moment on the album?
There are a lot of moments that I like in the album. My favorites are the quiet moments, suspended in the void with delicate themes.
What does this album mean to you personally?
A composer can be a very lonely person, so this is a great opportunity to share our works together as a singular message with several meanings.
Is there a specific feeling that you would like communicated to audiences in this work?
With my works, I would like to communicate my idea about the music that emanates the feeling of silence.
