Me and Francesca Rampazzi, in interview for the Radio WDR

In was wonderful last Friday Ferbuary 3rd, to be interviewd by Reinhold Friedl. With me, the lovable Francesca Rampazzi, daughter of Teresa. Reinhold Friedl is doing a radio show dedicated to Teresa Rampazzi for the Radio WDR (Westdeutscher Rundfunk) in Cologne, that will be broadcast in the next months.

It is such an honor to be invited to speak about Rampazzi’s role for this important radio, which was one of the first institutions to host an electronic music center (the Studio für elektronische Musik des Westdeutschen Rundfunks).

Francesca told us an astonishing series of anecdotes about her mother, and her connections with Maderna, Cage, Stockhausen, Metzger, Bussotti, Chiggio, and many others.

This interview was conducted at the Vicenza Conservatoire of Music, thanks to the hospitality of Lorenzo Pagliei, and the GRAIM Electronic Music Studio at the Conservatorio “Arrigo Pedrollo” in Vicenza.
