Piece description in Italian:
“Le voci nella mia mente” è una composizione per fagotto solista che si propone di mostrare una sovrapposizione a strati di diverse idee musicali che creano disturbo alla linea tematica principale. Ogni idea ha il suo registro di appartenenza (l’ostinato nell’acuto, la melodia in un registro più centrale ed i frammenti melodici nel grave) che si alternano in maniera netta. La melodia viene così disturbata sempre più da questi elementi, queste “voci nella mente” che proseguono sempre più invadenti fino alla fine del brano, il quale termina con un mormorio che ripercorre quasi tutta l’estensione dello strumento.

Every idea has its own belonging register ( the ostinato in the acute, the melody in a more central register and the melodic fragments in the low) and they alternate each other in a clear way. So, the melody is everytime disturbed by these elements, these “voices on my mind” that go on more and more intrusive until the end of the piece, that ends with a murmur going along almost the entire extension of the instrument
