There are a number of ways in which Divertimento Ensemble seeks out young composers to be presented to the Milanese audience; first and foremost is the “Franco Donatoni’ International Meeting for Young Composers, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year. This competition allows us to become familiar with around one hundred scores from all over the world every two years, and indicates to us the many directions in which young composers express contemporary thought today. Divertimento Ensemble not only performs the winning pieces of the three composers, but additionally commissions a new piece from each of the three winners to be played in the following year. This allows the audience to become deeply immersed in the musical ideas and expressions of each composer, leaving behind traces of their influence with the ensemble. So oder so und so weiter by the young French composer Bertrand Plé, born in 1986 in Lyon, was commissioned by Divertimento Ensemble, as well as Academy Opus XXI, and the Ulysses network; the ensemble will perform its Italian premier. The program concludes with It, for seven performers by Franck Bedrossian, another French composer, born in Paris in 1971, who has been living in the United States for a number of years.
