Fawn

Description: Recording of Lorenzo Ferrero's Fawn. "Fawn" has a number of very contradictory meanings in English; perhaps this is why it is a good title for a work on love that uses two extracts from Sappho as its text. The letters of this word are even the initials of a dedication that has meaning only for the author. It creates a relationship (Aristotelian?) between an esoteric (for oneself) and esoteric (for the public) that reproduces even romantic attitudes. This work can be performed live without any manipulation of the voice and is written as a normal score. The vocal part uses as a base the ancient eglian-chromatic medium and almost always respects Greek metrics and intonation.
