It was a starry night in July, in Pordenone, Italy. On the screen, in the ancient frame of the cloister of the convent of St. Francis, ran pictures of some documentaries of the First World War, coming from “La Cineteca del Friuli”.
The hands of Claudio Cojaniz, renowned Italian pianist, sensitive to the issue for personal and intimate needs, were sliding across the keyboard, vibrating and hitting the strings inside the piano, turning images into notes.
Cojaniz played the score he composed as an unique comment to the film, involving the public with the frankness and the evocative power of his piano and the expressiveness that distinguishes his approach to music.
Now, the memorable music of that evening is enclosed in this album. The listener, with the help of the texts of the rich booklet that accompanies the music — in four languages (Italian, Slovenian, Friulian, German) to "talk" to the heirs of those peoples who lived the most that senseless conflict — come along a journey back in the Great War, among its horrors and its devastation, including the hopes of freedom and naive euphoria, with the feeling that in the end, after so many sacrifices and so much destruction on all borders, nothing had been achieved, everything was lost.
A CD, in the end, that wants to be a lasting message of peace, because the memory is tired and the war — this one or the next one — is always too close.
