Synopsis

Crucifixus was born as a work to highlight school bulling. A piece that paints every section of the text beginning with whiplash and disturbing contemporary writing. Finding the light and the true being in the middle and culminating with a long that represents death itself.

Translated lyrics

Crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered, and was buried.

And he rose third day, according to Scriptures.
And he ascended into heaven, he sits at right hand of Father.

And again he is going to come with glory,
to judge living and dead,

of whose kingdom will never end.

About the compositional process

Central Bucks High School-West commissioned this work on November 12, 2017. The main idea was to create a revolutionary piece that can combine a completely contemporary sound with current music. I was lucky to be able to live this assignment with total freedom and express each idea following my own vision and desire. I had to get out of the box, look for new harmonies and paint each section of the work with an innovative texture. The result is this piece, one of the most profound I have written.
