Giacinto Scelsi - works for orchestra

Scelsi, who died on 9th August 1988 in Rome, may then as now be regarded as a discovery. In Italy he remains more or less without honour; but in Europe – dwell for a moment on the 2008 Salzburg Festival project “Continent” – and especially in Germany, the reception of his music began almost immediately and he has come to be valued as a powerful composer with deep insight.
