The fourth Trieste Prima 2015 concert took place at the Revoltella Museum on November 20. The Ensemble Hezarfen played only Turkish contemporary music; some composers, such as Manav and Özatalay, presented an extremely subtle poetics, where Oriental and Occidental aspects were merged in a magic amalgam. Other artists, such as Inge and Nurcan, seem to prefer the superimposition of different musical materials. The audience applauded the musicians warmly.
The fifth Trieste Prima 2015 concert taked place at the Revoltella Museum Auditorium on November 30 at 18.00. The young soloists Ghenadie Rotari (concert accordion), Ozren Grozdanic (concert accordion) and Mosé Andrich (piano) played the Coral's Klavieralbums. The two accordionistis presented six piano pieces, that were transcribed for accordion by Corrado Rojac at a Coral's suggestion. The six piano pieces choosen by Mosè Andrich were inspired by pictures of the Museo Revoltella; among the performances these were presented by Prof. Maurizio Lorber. Lenghty applause.
Helmut Lachenmann is one of the most important contemporary composers. On December 4 the Trieste Prima 2015 sixth concert is dedicated to him. The Interface Ensemble plays his solo music (Dal niente - Interieur III for clarinet and Ein Kinderspiel for piano) but his chamber music as well (the Trio fluido for clarinet, viola and percussion). There were played Nono's famous ...sofferte onde serene... (Nono was a model for the young Lachenmann) and Billone's Mani.Mono for spring drum too (Billone studied with Lachenmann).
On December 11 at the Revoltella Museum Auditorium the clarinettist (and composer) Uros Rojko and the accordionist Luka Juhart concluded the Trieste Prima 2015 contemporary music festival. They played mostly Rojko's music, but music by other composers as well, among them a piece by Vinko Globokar, Dialog über Luft. "I look for an existential performance", said Rojko after the concert. It was the perfect definition of the event we listened to.
On April 15 and 17 the Trieste Conservatory organized two concerts in memory of Giampaolo Coral, the appreciated composer and founder member of the Chromas Contemporary Music Association.
