MAURICIO KAGEL, LUDWIG VAN
FILM IN THE NEW VERSION BY ALBERTO CAPRIOLI (2008)
FOR SIX INSTRUMENTS AND LIVE ELECTRONICS (ALVISE VIDOLIN)
AUTHORIZED BY THE COMPOSER

THIS SECOND PERFORMACE IN VENICE WAS RECORDED BY SOUND ENGINEER MATTEO COSTA AT THE SALA PICCOLO TEATRO OF THE GIORGIO CINI FOUNDATION, ISOLA DI SAN GIORGIO MAGGIORE, ON NOVEMBER 14, 2009.
THE FIRST PERFORMANCE, PLAYED BY THE SAME INTERPRETERS, TOOK PLACE IN DOBBIACO (GUSTAV MAHLER FESTIVAL, JULY 16, 2008). MAURICIO KAGEL GAVE HIS APPROVAL FOR THIS SHORTER LIVE VERSION OF HIS FILM LUDWIG VAN IN A LETTER TO ALVISE VIDOLIN (COLOGNE, 29.02.2008, A. VIDOLIN’S ARCHIVES). THIS NEW VERSION, BORN FROM AN IDEA OF ALDO ORVIETO, INCLUDES TEN LIVE MUSICAL TROPES (IMPROVVISO I-X) COMPOSED BY ALBERTO CAPRIOLI AS REQUESTED BY MAURICIO KAGEL’S ORIGINAL SCORE LUDWIG VAN (UNIVERSAL EDITION), PARTLY SUBSTITUTING THE ORIGINAL 1970 SOUNDTRACK, PARTLY INTERACTING WITH IT BY MEANS OF THE LIVE ELECTRONICS. THESE ARE THE NEW PARTS OF THE SOUNDTRACK WHICH WERE PLAYED LIVE BY THE EX NOVO ENSEMBLE, WHEREAS THE LIVE ELCTRONICS OPERATE THROUGH ALMOST THE WHOLE PIECE:
01:54​ – 02:46​ IMPROVVISO I (ACOUSTIC)
06:22​ – 07:57​ IMPROVVISO II (MINIMAL, ‘TRASPARENT’ AMPLIFICATION, LIVE ELECTRONICS 1)
08:06​ – 08:53​ IMPROVVISO III (REVERBERATING SPACES, LIVE ELECTRONICS 2)
11:27​ – 14:01​ IMPROVVISO IV (MINIMAL, ‘TRASPARENT’ AMPLIFICATION 2, SPATIALIZED, LIVE ELECTRONICS 3)
15:56​ – 21:36​ IMPROVVISO V-VII FROM MAURICIO KAGEL’S SCORE (SPATIALIZED, LIVE ELECTRONICS 4-6)
22:58​ – 23:24​ IMPROVVISO VIII (LIVE ELECTRONICS 7)
24:20​ – 25:04​ IMPROVVISO IX (LIVE ELECTRONICS 8)
40:54​ – 43:28​ IMPROVVISO X (LIVE ELECTRONICS 9)
FOLLOWING THE IDEA OF ESTRANGEMENT WHICH WAS CLEARLY FORMULATED IN MAURICIO KAGEL’S SCORE LUDWIG VAN, ALL BEETHOVEN QUOTATIONS WERE RE-READ AND RE-ORCHESTRATED IN WHAT MAY BE SEEN AS UNUSUAL TIMBRES.
PARTICULAR THANKS ARE DUE TO THE FOUNDER OF THE EX NOVO ENSEMBLE, THE COMPOSER AND CONDUCTOR CLAUDIO AMBROSINI, TO MARIO MESSINIS, ALDO ORVIETO AND ALVISE VIDOLIN, AS WELL AS TO THE UNIVERSAL EDITION, THE WESTDEUTSCHES FERNSEHEN, WINTER & WINTER AND, LAST BUT NOT LEAST, DR. JOSEF LANZ, THE ARTSITIC DIRECTOR OF THE GUSTAV MAHLER MUSIKWOCHEN IN TOBLACH, WHERE THE FIRST PERFORMANCE OF THIS LIVE VERSION TOOK PLACE. DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF MAURICIO KAGEL, URSULA BURGHARDT, MARIO MESSINIS AND GIOVANNI MORELLI, UNDER WHOSE DIRECTION THE MUSIC INTITUTE OF THE GIORGIO CINI FOUNDATION IN VENICE WAS FOR A LONG TIME A UNIQUE MELTING POT OF MUSICAL IDEAS, CONTINUOUSLY CROSSING THE NEWEST FRONTIERS OF KNOWLEDGE.
