PROMETEO, Tragedia dell'ascolto (1981/1985)
for singers, speakers, chorus, solo strings, solo winds, glasses, orchestral groups, and live electronics
Arrangement of texts by Massimo Cacciari

Luigi Nono (1924-1990) had been a central figure in the Darmstadt Movement of the 1950s, developing serialism as an extension of the Second Vienna School along with Boulez and Stockhausen. Nono was not only a musical radical, but a political radical as well, joining the Italian Communist Party (PCI) in 1952, and later becoming one of its leaders. His music of the 1960s and into the 1970s expressed that fused vision of aesthetic, political and social revolution.

Then, beginning in 1980, he turned inward. It is no coincidence that this corresponded to the global capitalist offensive known as neoliberalism (Thatcherism, Reaganism) and the retreat of the Left. Nono at this point was heavily influenced by the philosopher Massimo Cacciari (who later become mayor of Venice), and through Cacciari, Walter Benjamin. PROMETEO is the major achievement of Nono's late period, a great electro-acoustic choral work that is basically a setting of the legend of Prometheus into Benjamin's essay "On the Concept of History," from which comes the well-known "Angel of History." Nono follows Benjamin in fusing humanist marxism with mystical spirituality, and produces epic sacred music.

THE MUSIC
Sprawling over two discs with nearly 70 minutes of music on each, PROMETEO's structure is very difficult for the ear to grasp. What one hears is sublimely beautiful choral voices, with periodic upwellings of instruments in vast, fierce tuttis, and a constant live electronic shimmer. The first disc is separated into four sections, while the second disc contains seven sections.
