A work by Antonio Eros Negri that takes the form of a counterpoint of counterpoints and is characterised by the copious presence within it of themes and musical fragments belonging to different Christmas traditions.
The piece takes the form of a counterpoint of counterpoints and is characterised by the copious presence within it of themes and musical fragments belonging to different Christmas traditions. The motifs, superimposed on each other in various ways and with different techniques, are now concealed, now revealed, now used to draw a sort of musical kaleidoscope
Blue Christmas, commissioned by the Associazione E' Musica Nuova to augment the original repertoire of the Elba Jazz Kids Orchestra, is aimed at young performers who already possess the orchestral experience acquired in previous phases of the orchestra school project. The instrumental difficulties are however very limited.
