Commissioned by the Italian Association Il Plettro for The Mediterranean Youth Orchestra, this short suite praises the seductive Italy, Fellini and Rota, lightness and tragedy, dance and sun... La Fanciulla proposes a permanent dialogue between the soloists of the quartet and the orchestra. The first movement, very concise, presents the characteristics of an Argentinean tango on a Nino Rota dance background where the dissonances and the polyrhythms come to densify the writing of this homely Fellini tribute but which, like a film of the Roman director, can be read on several levels. The second movement borrows the rhythm of the Sicilian painfully to evoke the drama of Lampedusa that Sicily cries since that tragic day of October 3, 2013. It is the solo mandolus entrusted the first theme, quickly joined by the guitar then mandolins, like the Sicilian songs of yesteryear. The modulating central section is dominated by the orchestra while the solo plectrum quartet reinforces the dark character of this Sicilian by a perpetual movement of sixteenth notes in second minor. The final part concluded in F major, repeating the main elements of this musical prayer. The Fanciulla concluded by a furious tarantella where the pizz bartok of the Orchestra, of unheard-of violence appear the volcanic irruption of Vesuvius while the soloists of the quartet are busy in the acute register, supported by the ostinato of the guitar solo. Tarentelle vesuviana, is part of the tradition of Neapolitan dances where rhythm and virtuosity predominate and brilliantly closes this Mediterranean triptych.
