Description
The piece
In 2005 this piece won the "1° Concorso Internazionale di Composizione per Banda su Villotte Friulane" (1st international band composition competition for Villotte Friulane), held in Udine. "Fruili's Folk Songs and Dances" is based on three themes from these folk songs, which provide the main subject-matter. The work is divided into three sections: the first opens on the theme from Biel vignint da l'Ongjarie, which is developed with a series of melodic and harmonic variations. A change of tone and the tolling of a bell introduce the second part (Ai preât la biele stele). This features a slow, cantabile theme played by the horns, which is then repeated by the various sections of the band, with continuous harmonic variations. The third part (Su la plui alte cime), with its fast, compound time, starts with a tabourin by the flutes and piccolo. The melody develops feverishly, moving from one instrument to another in canon form. In the finale the overlapping of the opening theme, which is used as a contrapuntal element, creates an interesting effect. Great care and attention have also been paid to orchestration and to creating special sounds that exploit the potential of the whole band.
