My colleague, a bassoon player, came to me the other day in a state of frenzy expressing his amazement of the Italian composer Teresa Procaccini. Let’s see who she is!
TERESA PROCACCINI (1934-) Italian organist, composer and educator in composition. Her output is enormous, over 200 works to this day and counting, and as you might imagine for all sorts of instruments and ensembles. Apart from the usual commissions such as operas, symphonic works and chamber music, she has also a number of praised opuses in the educational genres – both aimed for young musicians to play and to hear. Her music can also be heard accompanying several TV productions.
– The woodwind quintet Clown Music (it was this piece my colleague was so excited about)
– Un cavallino avventuroso a music fable for orchestra and narrator
