Ballad for an Uncommon Man

Composed by

Davide A. Pedrazzini

This heartfelt work evokes the memory of a dear friend of the composer, Angelo Sormani, who tragically passed away at a young age. It is a slow ballad with a lyrical and very expressive melody. The theme, introduced by the solo flute with vibraphone, develops in the woodwinds and then in the brass. In the second part there is a change of key (from Eb to F) and the theme is repeated in the medium-low lines. The piece ends with the melody expanding and becoming more rarefied.
