“Buonasera Trombone” is a piece written especially for ALESSI SEMINAR EUROPE with the first performance in Fossano 2008. “It is a particular piece to give a sort of salute to the audience. In Italian, the title means good evening trombone. The piece alternates with a similar introduction and presentation a TV show to come to a central part of contemporary music with references to the resumption of the theme. It is a very attractive piece for the audience and a great opener.”

Nicola Ferro’s amazing composition for 3 Trombones, Euphonium, Tuba and 2 Percussion players. Nicola writes: “This original composition has been my inspiration during the time I was at Joe’s home on Highmount Ave in Nyack, NY. I met his beautiful cat, I noticed all the details, when he walked, when he jumped and when he purred. Every part of the piece is the representation of the cat. At the end, I included a quotation from the cat of the fable Music Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev.”

“Nicola Ferro ha scritto per me Black White per flicorno e pianoforte. Il brano e’ una alternanza di due piccoli “quadri” Black White appunto. Comprende una parte melodica alternata da fulminee impennate del flicorno. Nel brano si può subito sentire il calore e la spontaneità del senso melodico di Ferro come anche si avverte in modo chiaro una immagine musicale molto di “confine”,un miscuglio di influenze Classic, Pop, Jazz, Fusion ma con una scrittura molto personale e autentica.”
