Preface:
The music of ancient Italy holds a lot of eternally beautiful melodies, - like diamonds!
„L’angelica Farfalla“ rescues – in fragmentary rays of hope - such treasures from the darkness of history: the famous madrigal „Amarilli“ of the Florentine composer and singer Giulio Caccini (1551-1618), the „Adagio“ from the Oboe concerto by Alessando Marcello (1669-1747), the „Ombra mai fu“, part of the Dramma per musica „Serse“ by Georg Friedrich Haendel (1685-1759). A furious Intermezzo is the Aria „Siam navi all’onde algenti“ from the opera Oper „L’Olimpiade“ by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741).
The shining sound oft he piccolo trumpet is representing the bright life of the celestial butterfly, - who escaped the dark erth life oft he worm! The true destiny of man has to be – if we believe in Alighieri Dante’s „Purgatorio“ from his book „Divina comedia“: „Siam vermi, nati a formar l’angelica farfalla“ ....We are worms, born to change into a celestial butterfly.
