L’incertezza del poeta was composed in autumn 1993 as a commission from the Japanese composer Katsuma Nakajima, artistic director of the Concerts for Peace Festival. The first performance took place on November 1st 1993 in Tokyo, and the performer was Ken- ichiro Yasuda.
The piece is inspired by the painting of the same title by Giorgio de Chirico and it represents (just like the piece La nostalgia dell’ infinito for flute and piano, 1986) the imaginary music in de Chirico’s landscape of silence.
