Ivan Fedele, portrait of a contemporary composer

Ivan Fedele, renowned and appreciated italian composer, author of more than sixty productions, that ranging from orchestral, concerto and electroacoustic works,to the chambre music, is considered one of the most representative contemporary authors nationally and internationally.
Eclectic and versatile artist, able to weave in his works two apparently differents and irreconcilable worlds: music and maths, linking a bold musical formation and an intense knowledge of theorical math, inherited from an early age by his father.
According to the idea of Maurizio Pollini, he considers contemporary music as “art music“, because:

“…today’s composers, go often around that area, the language area, the area where the subjects’s characteris expressed, and we try to visit maybe the more peripheral areas of the language, and to catch their “poesis”, or to express our creativity through those offshoots of the language, that are no very common, they are not often visited – but anyway are not devoid of a potential of highest expression.”
” Art music, as art painting, as art literature face the problem of language, the problem of expressing a sensitivity of the creative subjects, that isn’t necessarily og the highest level – we wish i, but it can be one of any level each one is able to attain and that uses the sound with other, different goals.
The fact that they use sounds doesn’t grant use the right to think that all the music works are at the same level, or can be regarding as being at the same level, without ranging them at the first or the second place, and that all of them belong to a big family, a big kind.”

Ivan Fedele

Creative sensibility that Ivan Fedele expressed especially in his pianistic works, where his productions poetically, linguistically and technically touch highest levels.
Full of intensitive and charme are the Études series: 5 Études Boreales (1990) and 5 Études Australes (2003), inspired by a landscape full of suggestions: the South Pole, made up of intensive colours and clear brightness.
You can appreciate and relive this beautiful images through the notes of Ciro Longobardi‘s executions of Études Australes, for Limen music & arts.

His intimate path into the world of piano music started in 1983 , when he has only 30 years old, with the piece “Toccata“, extremely important from an affective point of view for Ivan Fedele, because keep in mind his earlier experiences as a pianist.
