A new feature that Haydn included in this quartet was naming the minuet movement in each quartet Scherzo meaning ‘joke’ in Italian.
When song is genuine and its light glows, a sound originating thousands of years in the past reverberates into the present. This was the subject matter of our conversation when I first met Niccolò Castiglioni on March 13, 1993 – the beginnings of this language, its perpetuity and its perseverance. In the concert hall Puccini at the Conservatorio G. Verdi in Milan, Gianpaolo Bisanti was conducting a small instrumental ensemble playing my first composition “Chiacchierio”. It was the beginnings of my research to bring together the study of harmony and of counterpoint – a precious knowledge that Bruno Zanolini was transmitting to me. Niccolò was enthusiastic about it and invited me to join his composition class that I then attended for the next three years until his untimely death.
