|About:||This piece is, above all, my first try on atonal music.With Haiku3 I wanted to accept the challenge of writing a more “serious” music, as far as I had been a pretty “tonal” composer before this piece.
I chose to start this experience by using small structures, because I knew in advance that it was going to be difficult to write in a style that I was just starting to consider.
I was looking to write a vocal piece at that time, that’s how the idea of “Haiku” came out.
A Haiku is a typical Japanese form of poem, very short and condensed, but where each word has a large an important meaning.
Haiku3 is, in some way, a sort of suite of 3 musical poems which are, considering the musical writing technique, linked between them through mirroring effects on their construction.
For example: the third movement is simple the first movement but played in the other sense (from the end to the beginning)
