The composer writes: “Spiders are often scary and sometimes impressive, but really they are great friends of the countryside. They feed on harmful insects, and their presence ensures the maintenance of a healthy ecosystem. From the tiny jumping spiders and leaping spiders to the creepy black-mantled segestria; from the violin spider that does not weave a web to the fast tarantula; from the characteristic wasp spider to the shy malmignatta with the ladybug markings; from the shy zoropsidae (false wolf spiders) to the tegenaria that weaves enormous and messy webs, spiders make up a multifaceted and undoubtedly fascinating universe. Spiders are silent friends. Therefore, this music wants to give them a voice, entrusted to the instrument which—like them—is the most colorful and magnificent.”
