Libertà va cercando (Freedom he seeks) is a music composition for cello, clarinet and piano trio.
Written on the occasion of the 700th year recurrence of Dante’s death, the piece was performed for the first time in July 2021 at the Mascarade Opera Studio in Florence.
It is freely inspired by the Divine Comedy. Both its title, which is a verse from the Purgatory, and its freely flowing musical form are a symbolic reminder of Dante’s torturous journey through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven.
Simona was born in Ariano Irpino (AV) in 1996, where she started to explore her love for music at a young age, being selected as part of the school’s choir. She eagerly dedicated to choir activity until 2019.
She attended Liceo musicale “Petrarca” in Arezzo, where she studied trumpet and piano, while also developing a passionate interest in music composition.
She continued to pursue her studies at Conservatorio “Cherubini” in Florence, where she received a BA degree in Musical Composition with full marks in 2020. For her final exam, she composed A Palazzo Oro Ror, a cantata freely inspired by some of Aldo Palazzeschi’s poetical writings.
She is presently completing her MA degree at Conservatorio “Cherubini”.
She had the opportunity to have some of her pieces performed in Italy, such as Aladin Quartett in Rome, Alice’s dreamy memories in Noto, Voce di vedetta morta and Libertà va cercando in Florence.
Many of them are inspired by literary works, in a creative attempt to give new voice to their words.
