Concerto / Duo Alterno

En rose 
A project by Duo Alterno with new music by Italian women composers 

Duo Alterno
Tiziana Scandaletti soprano
Riccardo Piacentini piano

En rose is a project by Duo Alterno whose first idea was born in 2019. More than thirty pieces written by Italian women composers and dedicated to the Duo Alterno were collected for several concert programs on the same theme and performed, till now, in Finland, Sweden, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala, Algeria, Argentina, Germany, Denmark.

From time to time the title was: Pink Songs, Canciones en rosa, Chansons en rose… and now En rose. In this version, designed ad hoc for two concerts in Copenaghen and Berlin, there will be two new improvisations on pieces by Carla Rebora and Carla Magnan. What can be interesting is that the various women composers involved in this project come from many parts of Italy. In Copenaghen and Berlin there will be pieces by composers from Milan (Rossella Spinosa, Marcela Pavia and Sonia Bo), Asti (Carla Rebora), Turin (Maria Radeschi), Carla Magnan (Genua), Rome (Elisabetta Capurso), L’Aquila (Roberta Vacca), Ascoli Piceno (Ada Gentile). Iin this specific version, the concert involves six Italian regions with two first performances and a large range of aestethic positions.

The Duo Alterno is from Turin and is considered one of the most significant Italian reference points in the vocal-piano repertoire ranging from the early 20th century to today. Since its debut in Vancouver in 1997 it has taken the best Italian music to about 60 countries of 5 continents. Defined by The Washington Post as the Duo "with a big voice and a fine sense of comedic timing" and as "high theatrics Duo with a strong personality" by Los Angeles Times, "The Duo that gives voice (and piano) to the Italian twentieth century" by la Repubblica of Rome, "The wonderous Duo" by the Sub-Saharan Informer of Addis Abeba and as "an electric experience" by the Hindu of Chennai, the Duo Alterno has published 20 CDs among which 5 monographies dedicated to Francesco Paolo Tosti (Urania Records, 2017), Giorgio Federico Ghedini, Alfredo Casella and Franco Alfano (Nuova Era, 2000/4) plus the wide collection "La voce contemporanea in Italia – volumes 1-6" (Stradivarius, 2005/14, with first recordings and pieces by Abbado, Andrini, Battistelli, Berberian, Berio, Bortolotti, Bosco, Bussotti, Cage, Cattaneo, Clementi, Colla, Corghi, Dallapiccola, Donatoni, Esposito, Ferrero, Gentile, Giuliano, Guarnieri, Landini, Lombardi, Maderna, Manzoni, Morricone, Mosso, Nono, Petrassi, Pinelli, Scelsi, Sciarrino, Solbiati, Vacchi) and La voce crepuscolare (Stradivarius, 2010).

Their experimental research into "foto-musica con foto-suoni" has led to six CDs of soundtracks for museums: Musiche della Reggia di Venaria Reale, Mina miniera mia, Treni persi, Arie condizionate, Shahar (Curci, 1999) and Musiche dell'aurora.
