Rogai, Filippo

The Living Flute

The focus of this album is craftsmanship and the unity of making music as an alternative to specialization, which today forces the separation of activities and skills. Making music in the sense of composing, performing, and recording it, following a rigorous and professional process, and avoiding compartmentalization. Thus, Riccardo Parrucci, a musician and flutist, appears in the finished work as a composer, sound technician, and advisor on certain executive and interpretative choices. Filippo Rogai, who selected the pieces, fulfills his role as a performer without renouncing his involvement in Parrucci's compositional process. The synergy between the two creates a continuum of ideas, suggestions, and images that accompany the listener through the various pieces (from Telemann and Varèse to contemporary composers such as George Benjamin, Gary Schocker, Katherine Hoover, Cristbal Halffter, and Lowell Liebermann, along with Parrucci himself), whose performing order has been the subject of reflection and elaboration, beyond the more customary chronological intent.
