Sergio Calligaris
The composer's creative inspiration

..

Sergio Calligaris' works Catalogue pageThis page is divided into two sections: "Catalogue" and "Mediatheque".
The "Catalogue" section gives the list of works composed by Sergio Calligaris throughout all his composing carreer, still in full swing, and published by Carisch.
For each composition there's the title, the number of opus, the foreseen performing ensemble and the year of composition, with a note concerning the possibility to purchase or hire the score which edition code is written in square brackets.
There are works that are provided with some excerpts in MP3 format to listen to (identified by the icon Icon for MP3 files). They are excerpts from CD in the market whose performers have been artistically connected with the Maestro, with whom they have collaborated for performing his works and whose performances gained the Maestro's approval.
Information related to those performers can be got placing the mouse cursor over the icon Icon for performers list, allowing the appearance of a pop-up reporting such information.

The "Mediatheque" section, introduced since March 2011, has a fundamental ambition: the aim to collect and share the complete versions of the Maestro's works coming from LPs and CD hard to find out as they are out of print, as well as live recordings, very often of first world performances given by the dedicatee artists and provided by the Maestro himself. For each recording any information related to its source is given, both media or live concert.
In that same section there are moreover the links to short films of further performances published in by artists in the world who love, study and perform the Maestro's music with valuable outcome. An incentive and an invitation to any artist who wishes his/her video with the Maestro's music to be proposed in his official website.
This section therefore collects a cultural heritage of great value, available for anybody is interested to know Sergio Calligaris' music.
This page is closed by the list of the volumes of scores related to an important publishing initiative: "Piano Parnassum", the anthology of Sergio Calligaris' piano music.
