The research presented in this book focuses on exploring the musical phenomenon – Giacinto Scelsi’s works for great orchestra and great orchestra with choir. The analytical issues raised by the author: construction and dramaturgy of great orchestral cycles, harmonics, time organization, Scelsian sound technique, composer’s graphic emblem as an esoteric key to his universe, oriental inspirations, numerical symbolism, extra-musical program and musical symbolism, sacrum, references to the transcendent Absolute, Plotinian correspondences and paradigms. Contextual issues: biographical aspects (chronicle of Giacinto Scelsi’s life, creative inspirations, artistic personality, evolution of musical style), sources and references (recherche sur le timbre, Orientalism and Western occult-esoteric tradition).

Be a part of our european project !

This European project (KA 203 Strategic Partnership) created by Salvatore Gioveni promotes cross-border collaboration in the field of Music Theory through sharing knowledge and transferring pedagogical innovation. It thus responds to a lack of centralised source and framework to deepen reflection by means of cross-disciplinary study at European and international level.

There is a significant wealth of educational practices from one country to another in this sector, especially in terms of harmonic musical notation and analysis. However, HMEI's are facing the nonexistence of a European network for pedagogical staff in Music Theory so far. To improve the situation, the project will among other things develop several intellectual outputs such as Online Platform (IO 1), an EU Bibliography (IO 2), a Repository Courses (IO 3), a Multilingual Glossary (IO 4) and an Exchange Online Learning Platform.

Besides the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles as leader and manager of the project, the following partner institutions are involved: Music Academy S. Moniuszki Gdańsk (Gdańsk, Poland), F. Liszt Academy of Music Budapest (Budapest, Hungary), Estonian Academy for Music and Theatre (Tallinn, Estonia), HfMTh "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" (Leipzig, Germany).
