Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — Starting Point (2019) for organ

“Starting Point” (2019) is inspired by “Picture of the Starting Point,” a painting by the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), a pioneer in abstract art. Klint’s artwork was connected to her mystical beliefs; the diagrammatic aspects of some of her paintings were intended as visual representations of her spiritual ideas. In this composition, the basic material is formed from a descending scale with each tone assigned to one of the colors from Klimt’s painting (a series of concentric circular bands of different colors).

Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) is an Italian composer. Educated at the Conservatory in Milan, she has composed in many genres, developing a personal language that is concerned with the blend of past and present. Her compositions have been performed frequently around the world. Ferrari’s music appears on several CD recordings, including seven all-Ferrari organ CDs: four recorded by Carson Cooman (2014/16/18) and three by Peter Clark (2015/16/18). She served as chair of music composition at Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang, China and is currently professor of music composition at the European School of Economics in Florence, Italy.
