The fundamental aim of the project Autunna et sa Rose is to reach a synthesis of various arts, in particular of poetry and music. From a specifically musical point of reference, the compositions can be classified in an avant-garde contemporary-classical style, drawing most of inspiration from several 20th century authors, and from some of the latest decades as well.

The combined word teatromusica (theatre-music) has been often used in order to relate to the artistic genre the project has always proposed, with the meaning of a form that is just at first musical, embodying in fact some clear aspects and connotations of theatrical substance: in a more extensive sense, it lies at the intersection point of several expression forms, where it generates a fusion of arts in an all-embracing harmonized unit, able to widen the emotional and perceptive range of the spectator. For this reason, since some years our interest in video production has been increasing, some short films have been created and used as background projections during the shows, with the intent to offer a more complete interpretation and a widespread overall view.

Being aware of the fact that this project can reach the top of its Phalène d'onyxexpressive power on stage, yet we are happy and proud to introduce at last the brand-new CD from the project, titled Phalène d’onyx, that has not a merely musical structure: in fact, the starting point of this work is a set of fifteen poems, that have been written before the whole formation of the concept and have been the basis for the seven musical compositions (plus the eight intermezzos), and finally for the creation of the related images, considered as the synthesis in a triptych of expression forms, representing – in accordance with the above-mentioned artistic declaration – the true object of the work.

Sonia VisentinMany musicians have participated in the recordings of the musical part of Sergio ScarlatellaPhalène d’onyx: it is surely worth remembering the essential contributions of the soprano leggiero Sonia Visentin (well-known since many years as a fundamental interpreter of several roles in opuses from Claudio Ambrosini and Adriano Guarnieri) and of the actor Sergio Scarlatella, linked up with the renowned avant-garde theatrical company Societas Raffaello Sanzio.

Some master topics about the themes of the poems of Phalène d’onyx, along with the analysis of the compositions (in some special PDF documents) are available at the related page.

We are always available for collaborations, participations and composition of music for theatre or soundtracks.
