Un SUSSULTO AL CUORE – “A SHOCK TO THE HEART”
Concerto for orchestra and choir, music and direction by Maestro Emmanuele Lo Russo
The maestro Emmanuele Lo Russo wanted to call his work “a shock to the heart”.
The title of the concert recalls to us how this shock happens in the part so secret of us, but yet so essential in every search: the heart.
It is there that the beauty of the mistery reverberates, and still fascinates us. It is the surprising gift of life, a desire of the good given to our brothers and sisters, to the wife with whom one perceives a unity of objective and expression. A gift from heaven, just as is called to be this part of the heart which is music.
The shock to the heart “is the moment in which what you have inherited becomes yours…”
It is the moment in which you realize what happens here and now, that which you searched for because man’s heart is made for a fullness, a happiness for all of life.
But it is everyone’s work to search, to domand this inheritance, to remain open since he inherits only who is abandoned, naked, lacking.
The tradition, that which our fathers have passed down to us, becomes ours only within a journey of begging.
This is a concert that recounts to us the story of Emmanuele and his friends, the sacred story of our life, a dialogue with the heart of each of us.
