Manto I, (Scelsi) for viola solo

April 9, 2020

Scelsi was inspired by “Manto”, a Sybil of Delphi, the oracle of the temple of Apollo, getting in trance due to the sulfury damps rising up out of the earth in the temple.

“Manto 1” is for viola solo, with scordatura-tuning ‘D (in stead of C)- G – D – A’

Recorded at ‘Begijnhofkerk Sint-Truiden’ (Belgium) in 2008 by Daniel Léon (Igloo recordings) for Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles (Mons, Belgium) Featured Artwork: excerpts from metallic pastels by Georgine van Assche.
