La Pietra Che Canta (The Singers Stone)

Ruben Guzman

2001, 22:12 minutes, Colour/B&W


When Canadian composer Serge Provost first visited the Gloriosa Basilica of Santa Maria dei Frari in Italy, he was deeply moved by the sheer humbleness of Monteverdi's tombstone.
This became his initial motivation for composing "La Pieta che Canta" (The Singing Stone), a personal tribute to the great musician. The piece "for violin, cello, piano and live electronics" was specially composed for the Trio Fibonacci.
The multi-media performance version that included this video was premiered at the Centro Cultural Parque di España in the city of Rosario, Argentina in November, 2001.
