A Musical Notebook by Alfredo Casella: «Quaderno 9» (1924–1926)
AbstractThe original manuscripts of the main part of Alfredo Casella’s production are collected in sixteen musical notebooks. These working sketchbooks provide a unique perspective on the composer’s routine, personality, and many other musical and extra-musical aspects of his work. Containing the score for three of his most important large-scale works: La giara ballet, Partita for piano and orchestra, and Concerto romano for organ and orchestra, the Quaderno 9 is a highly relevant exemplar among them. Taken together with other archival materials from the Fondo Alfredo Casella at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, it demonstrates an outstanding moment of success and artistic creativity for Casella, not just as acomposer, but also in relation to other forms of art.
