“E io ch’al fine di tutt’ i disii / appropinquava” at the Ravenna Festival. Italy

Paradiso (Heaven) XXXII

The verses from Dante’s Paradiso

In Mirco De Stefani’s composition, twelve male voices give musical garb to verses from Dante’s Paradiso, Canto XXXIII, where the pilgrim’s journey through the afterlife comes to its end and fulfilment. This work was composed in 2018 for the 750th anniversary of the Cloister of the Abbey of Santa Maria di Follina, and premièred by Ensemble Odhecaton, who will perform it again in Ravenna.

The score

The score follows the entire length of the Canto through a variety of compositional procedures: polyphonies, counterpoints, imitations, unisons, mirror and spiral canons, binary and ternary rhythms, cadenzas and resumptions. Vocal forms and structures that deliver Dante’s words in all their extraordinary evocative power.
