PIERLUIGI BILLONE: 1+1=1
We have been planing this unique project for a long time: a composition for two bass clarinets as a full evening program. Through intense research Pierluigi Billone has acquired much experience in handling the bass clarinet and is the ideal composer for this task. Billone has an open mind and original thoughts about such a project. His formal conception can open new spaces for the listeners and take them on a exciting journey into the souls of the bass clarinets. The title of the work 1+1=1 is a quotation from an Andrey Tarkovskij film which points to the special relation between the two instruments.
