Nicola Bernardini

In July 1995 my father asked me to set to music a text he had written reflecting the shock he felt at the situation in Bosnia.
The project interested me for two reasons. First and foremost was the challenge of creating a comment on such a complex issue without losing the impact of such inhuman behavior.
The second challenge was musical. I felt I couldn't use my usual compositional techniques which could get in the way of the text: a new approach was needed.
Recordare is the result of several years of thought and work. As I write this I regret that Ratko Mladic is still free and active in Kosovo despite having being accused of war crimes by the World Tribunal for Civil Rights.
