  • HYMNE
     
     HYMNE (Epifanie della forma interiore) (2005), for Organ. The strenght of the poetic "images" into Le Chemin de la Croix by Paul Claudel had always made a deep impression on my creative imagination. When the Cappella Musicale di Milano asked me to compose a piece for the international organ review Vespri d'organo in S. Maria della Passione during Lent, I could only choose the irresistible symbolism and the powerful dramatic tension of the "scene" and of the particular "form" of the cross. I could only choose the line of ancient Vexilla Regis pròdeunt. First performance Vespri d'organo in S. Maria della Passione, Milano 13th March 2005 Franz Comploi, organ http://www.francescoparadiso.com/hymne-2.html?lang=en
