Rinascita (Italian for rebirth), for mezzo soprano, trombone, percussion, violin and violoncello, is the third and last piece belonging to Between Two Rivers: A Trilogy. It was requested by my US colleague James Michael Bicigoand is dedicated to the memory of my late teacher, Franco Donatoni. The symbolic dimension of Rinascita stands apart from those of Canto di Enheduanna, and Lament of the flutes for Dumuzi, in that, rather than being centred on particular figures (ie Dumuzi, Enheduanna and Inanna/Ishtar) and their associated religious symbolism/mythology, it is concerned with the idea of rebirth (rinascita) in the abstract sense.
Instrumentation: Mezzo-soprano, trombone, percussion, violin, cello.
Duration: 12 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Franco Donatoni. Dedicated to the memory of my late teacher, Franco Donatoni
