Trame di sangue grigio

for orchestra

First prize at the 2020 Macht Orchestral Composition Competition & first prize (tie) at the 2020 Virginia Carty deLillo Composition Competition (Completed in Baltimore, USA - 2018, rev.2019)
Dismayed at the unending Syrian crisis, I dedicated this work to all the human blood poured on the sacrificial altar of power.

Nudo di maschera

for string orchestra

Commissioned by Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina (Florence, ITALY - 2016)

In writing this work I was inspired by the convoluted seduction scene of Shakespeare's Richard III, in which Gloucester and Lady Anne seek what they may offer to and receive from one another: power, social status, and protection. Both characters unveil their raw needs – ‘naked masks.’
