Ivan Buffa – Composer’s Portrait II.
Ivan Buffa’s second authorial profile provides a retrospective look at the works that stood during the formation of his compositional poetics, especially during the first decade of the new millennium.
The string quartet as a four-part formary unit was formed several years during his university studies and can be considered as the first more extensive composition by the author, responding to stimuli from Central Europe. Aria for bass flute and Burlesque for French horn are miniatures revealing mysterious nooks and crannies of the colorful and dynamic possibilities of a solo instrument. Their mixing in various combinations is brought by the Trio, which also comes from student times.
The ensemble Rebirth was commissioned by the Ostrava Days festival and marked the definitive confirmation of the process of transforming the author’s compositional poetics, in which instead of eliminating the material and concentrating the expression, with exceptions conceived exclusively in shorter colored areas (such as Quasars), the dynamic development of the material began. maximally filling the space with sound and movement.
