Matteo Bertolina (IT) – B-E Bagatella ecatombea
Matteo Bertolina about his piano piece „Bagatella ecatombea“
„This piece is inspired by Bagatelle in C major WoO 56. The subtitle is in Italian language: „Bagatella ecatombea“ and it means: sad Bagatelle for a slaughter or a massacre. How can we reinterpret Beethoven’s Bagatelle? In this score the pianist and the listeners are into a new vision of major key; intervals and piano techniques begin from Beethoven and they evolve and yield new results.“
