la Deconquista, il Pachacuti
musical opera by Luigi Ceccarelli
from a poem by Gianni Toti
video Giulio Latini
voice Giovanna Mori
This piece was born from a poetic text by Gianni Toti about the epos of Inca prince Tupac Amaru.
The action starts at the rising of indios against the spanish conquistadores, nine years before the French Revolution.
The conclusion of the poem takes place, though, in our time, and talks about the cruel ending of the kidnapping at the Japanese Embassy, caused by the present President of Peru.
In these epic vicissitudes past and present melt, mingle and get united within the legend of Latin American People’s liberation from the conquistadores of all times.
The aim of the composer was that of transforming this fascinating and complex text into a charming and amazing postmodern adventure.
In Tupac Amaru Luigi Ceccarelli tries to convey the expressive force of present music into moulding the words and giving them a strong emotional power, expanding the original meaning of the text.
