Giacinto Scelsi was one of the most original Italian composers of the twentieth century.

The symbolic choice of Rome as his home represented Scelsiís own cultural, artistic and spiritual interests. His fascination for Eastern philosophies, Yoga and Zen meditation are combined with a insightful knowledge of Christian, Greek, Egyptian and Mesopotamian mythologies; Scelsiís library and collection of recordings displays his cultural interests, his curiosity and openness to the intricacies of the mind and his lifelong quest for a dialogue between different expressions of human spirituality.

Marco Fusi, one of the leading performers of contemporary music, presents his readings of some of Scelsiís intriguing works for violin and for viola solo. For the listener, this is a journey into a futuristic vision from a past era.
