Soavodia is the first of a series of chamber works with which the writing of the opera Il Luogo della Mente was interrupted in 1980. The author had resolved to compose an opera also to give himself stimuli which would permit him a spontaneous leave-taking from his previous way of writing, which he had seen to be no longer adequate. Among the characteristics which connote the theatrical side of this composition one may note: the diatonism, towards which the chromatic tensions converge; the intervalic, more conjunct than disjunct; the fixedness of the registers of the pitches. Other, and less generic, peculiarities are deducible from listening and from the dislike of these notes.
