Roberto Fabbriciani, bass flutes. Robin Hayward, microtonal tuba. 'This is the first CD of improvised music featuring Roberto Fabbriciani, one of the giants of contemporary music. Fabbriciani was the instrumentalist with whom Luigi Nono worked most closely in the last two decades of his life, playing in the premieres of virtually all of the composer's late works. On nella basilica Fabbriciani improvises with Robin Hayward, the phenomenal Berlin-based tuba player with whom he has worked on several recent realisations of Nono's music. Their improvisations - recorded in the Basilica di San Domenico in the Tuscan hilltown of Arezzo - create a unique sound, largely based on the extraordinarily low tones produced both by the tuba and the hyperbass flute that Fabbriciani played for much of the session.
