Addio a Circe, for mezzo-soprano, baritone and pianoforte, declares its own link with the past both in the title and in the specification “cantata”: a twofold historical reference that one might be tempted to compare with an overlaid optical lens or filter, through which the light of the classical myth reaches the contemporary gaze of Galante and Bonomi only after passing through the filter of the Baroque – the period when the cantata was in full flourish. Yet, in the authors’ vision, all distance is annulled: the chronological and cultural stratification is deliberately converted into a virtual compresence, without any sense of nostalgia.
