Written in 1986 and revised in 2006 'ombreggiatura in monocolore' is closely related to 'Chanson' (also available from the Sibelius website) and is a reworking of the original piano version. The orignal piece was written to be performed during an art exhibition in Sermoneta, Italy. As the exhibition was open 6 hours per day the piece lasted that length of time each day. As visitors walked around the exhibition they heard the piece being played over a speaker system. No single listener heard the piece in its entirety (including the staff who worked shifts) and it was not necessary that they did so. The music was unobtrusive and meant to enhance the visual experience of the exhibition. In the String Quartet version the six sections can be played in any order any number of times. Small variations in tempo, articulation, dynamics, phrasing etc are encouraged. Performance materials are available from the composer at the email address below.
