Pity for the Misbegotten

Salvatore Sciarrino's opera 'Superflumina',
reviewed by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

Palermo's Teatro Massimo should be given a special award for having brought Salvatore Sciarrino's Superflumina to Italy, as part of a festival to celebrate the Italian composer's seventieth birthday. The festival included all Sciarrino's compositions for flute and other concertos, including one for one hundred saxophones in motion. I saw and heard Superflumina on 4 November 2017.
