Composer's Notes

The DVD Passeggiata in America e ritorno was made in 1999. The score consists of a short "ouverture" for keyboard and a song for jazz singer, violin and keyboard. The text solo consists of two long fragments of the poem in prose by Dino Campana with the same name. The visual artist Marijke van Warmerdam made a rigorous interpretation of Campana’s beautiful, surrealist poetry into an adventurous, polyinterpretable imagery. The song is especially composed for the italian singer Cristina Zavalloni.
Louis Andriessen
