Features "Guai ai Gelidi Mostri (1983, for 2 altos, flute, clarinet, tuba, viola, violoncello, contrabass and live electronics) and "Quando Stanno Moredno. Diario Polacco n. 2" (for four female voices, bass flute, violoncello and live electronics). "In March 1983, Nono wrote to a close friend, the painter Emilio Vedova, while staying in the Black Forest: 'I felt at the time, and still feel that I have to compose unforeseen and unforeseeable music for the Carnevali. What interests me personally is [...] not only the grey, not only the prefabricated ruptures, but also the beautiful newness that explodes -- tragically -- also violently -- but which aspires towards the most gentle newness.' At that time, Nono was in a preparatory phase at the Freiburg Experimentalstudio of the Heinrich Strobel Foundation where, together with director Hans-Peter Haller, he was able to explore new possibilities of structuring time and space and to study live electronics."
