Sheet Music: Score
Via Trionfale: verso il loto Benedetto : for brass trio / Katia Tiutiunnik.
by Katia Tiutiunnik (2002)
The title of this composition is Italian for "Way of Triumph: Towards the Blessed Lote Tree" and was initially inspired by my visions of the triumphal processions of heroic victors, marching to the Capitol to receive their accolades, in ancient Rome. (I lived in Rome for over five years, during which time I spent many Sunday afternoons walking to the Capitol). The second vision which served as poetic impetus for Via Trionfale... was that of the lote tree, which, in the Islamic tradition, symbolizes the boundary between human and divine knowledge. The lote tree, or lotus, is also a universal symbol of transcendence. The symbolic dimension of Via Trionfale...is concerned with those who heroically transcend terror in all its forms and the ultimate victory, both material and spiritual, which ensues from that transcendence.
