We once again welcome Nomòi, an Italian Contemporary Ensemble, who will give a performance of music and dance by Rosolino Di Salvo entitled The sun in Ulysses. It will be an enchanting, and unusual musical poem in the atmospheric surroundings of the London Canal Museum, celebrating Museums at Night 2018. The concert is a symphonic poem in five movements:
I - the sun in Ulysses
II - the dancing Satyr
III - the wood Nymph
IV – the Sciara of fire
V - Penelope's night
The 2nd, 3rd and 4th movements forming the central block are gathered in a triptych originally written and published under the title Triptych of the earth and the sea, for voice, flute and guitar. The 1st movement, with a prelude function, is a composition based on elaborations and variations having as their centre the series of harmonics founding the 5th movement, Penelope’s Night, which originally was born as a nocturne for guitar.
"The sun in Ulysses" represents a tribute to the famous Ulysses by James Joyce. There are also continuous references to the Odyssey and various references to places and fragments of Magna Graecia and Greek culture in general. From a formal point of view, music is "played" in tune with the writing technique used by Joyce in his novel.
