Ten of the most prominent composers on the contemporary Italian scene try their hand at reinterpreting their favourite song, a source of inspiration for an equal number of covers and original compositions. A formidable catalyst, able to permeate every aspect of our daily experience, a container filled with trash and triumphs, the song form can penetrate our soul in an unrepeatable and subjective way.
Taking artists such as The Beatles, Sigur Rós, Radiohead and Laurie Anderson, O Supersong is a project based on the dialogue between those who create music and those who enjoy it; a concert split between two different sets that coexist on the stage.
On one side is the vocal-piano duo comprised of Cristina Zavalloni and Fabrizio Puglisi, engaged in the interpretation of the ten pieces selected by the composers, and on the other, the ten original compositions matched to the songs and performed by the Parco della Musica Contemporanea Ensemble. The result is a duel between opposing universes of sound, suddenly integrated into a unique and extremely personal musical experience, intimate yet also genuinely collective.
