Il Ponte (The Bridge) is a composition for piano, multipercussion, and strings, conceived as a full-program concert piece that occupies the traditional concert space of first and second half.

Composing or playing any type of music results in a conflict between the immediacy of reactions to sound and the intellectual discipline that is required to write or perform a piece of music. This conflict is what has interested me in the last year of composing. The result is a set of interlinked pieces for piano, multipercussion, and strings, that explore this “taming of the beast”: chamber music in its capacity to build complex musical structures while communicating deep emotions and feelings in a free and immediate way.
