The majestic and unmistakable sound of maestro Henoel Grech will accompany the most important multidisciplinary sports event for under 14s in Italy, taking place from December 15th to 17th in Piedmont.
Turin, December 13th, 2023. Maestro Henosel Grech, from Turin, has been chosen to compose the anthem and all the music for the Trofeo Coni Winter 2023, the mini Olympics reserved for young athletes and scheduled to take place from December 15th in Turin, Pinerolo, Bardonecchia, and Pragelato.
The composer, already well-known for his music for the famous 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, and famous in the national and international music scene for his avant-garde compositions – including the recent trailer for last year’s Batman movie – has chosen a sound that recalls the Greek Olympics but with a touch of modernity for this occasion.
“I am truly proud to have been chosen by CONI Piemonte to compose the music for this important sports event,” says Henoel. “The anthem of the Trofeo Coni Winter 2023, solemn and institutional, has been created with the aim of exalting Olympic values and national pride. With a duration of about 2 minutes and 30 seconds, it represents a classic example of patriotic music that will accompany the emotions of athletes and spectators. The music of the entire ceremony,” continues the composer, “recalls the sounds of the ancient Greek Olympics, transporting all those present on a journey through time. The typical sounds that evoke Mount Olympus will be used to create a magical and solemn atmosphere, celebrating the greatness of sports and the connection between past and present.”
In short, the year 2023 consolidates the strong relationship between Henoel Grech and sports. Over the years, among the maestro’s compositions, we remember the official anthem EMAU-Federazione Tiro con l’Arco, the anthem of UEG-European Gymnastics Union, the anthem of the World Swimming Championships, the anthem of men’s volleyball, the anthem of Kinderidi, the anthem of twirling, and the anthem of European softball, in addition to the aforementioned anthem of the 2006 Olympics and, just a couple of months ago, the anthem of the newly established African Football League commissioned by FIFA, which has enjoyed great success among football fans on the African continent.
Henoel Grech’s music will accompany the opening ceremony of the CONI Winter 2023 Trophy on Friday, December 15th, at 5:00 pm at the Pala Gianni Asti in Turin, during all the competitions, and finally, it will provide the soundtrack for the closing ceremony, scheduled at the Pala Gianni Asti on Sunday, December 17th, at 1:00 pm.
