Trecento tacchini d'allevamento duettano con un cantante e finiscono in un disco. Un branco di lupi "ricama" sul riff di una chitarra e finisce in un altro disco. E il delicato coro delle feroci orche marine in altro ancora. Assurdo? No, perché le vie della musica, popolare o colta che sia, complessa o semplicissima, che provenga da strumenti musicali o dalla voce, anche da quella animale, sono davvero infinite, spesso sorprendenti. Questo "12" è un formidabile viaggio nella musica meno consueta, dove accanto a tacchini e orche incontriamo grandissimi artisti con le loro opere meno conosciute, eppure memorabili. Ecco, allora, il disco capolavoro di Prince sparito dal mercato, la mitica jam session segreta dei Rolling Stones, un rarissimo LP di Yoko Ono e quello di un concerto milanese degli Area, rumorosamente contestato dal pubblico; e poi ancora Philip Glass e i Roxy Music, Berio e Stockhausen, John Cage, Claudio Lolli. Tra memorie private e i ricordi di un'intera generazione, Carlo Boccadoro, compositore tra i maggiori del panorama internazionale, guida il lettore nell'intreccio delle più diverse suggestioni musicali.

Lucrezia Bendidio (Signora or Contessa Machiavella) (April 8, 1547 after 1584) was an Italian singer and noblewoman from Ferrara. She started as a lady-in-waiting for Leonora d'Este in 1561. Many poets wrote of her great skill as a singer, including Torquato Tasso and Giovanni Battista Pigna. She was in fact an early love of Tasso's in 1561, as well as of Cardinal Luigi d'Este and Pigna. Tasso's character "Licori" in his play Aminta was based on her. She was part of the famous Concerto delle donne during its early period. She was later married to Count Baldassare Macchiavelli of Ferrara. With her sister Isabella Bendidio she sang for private court evenings as part of the musica secreta of the court. Another sister, Taddea, married Giovanni Battista Guarini, their daughter Anna Guarini was a singer in the concerto delle donne during the second period.
The virtuous Roman matron Lucretia killed herself in 509 b. C. Her death is considered the cause of the Roman revolt against the Tarquins and the mainspring of the passage from the monarchic to the republican age. It is a myth about private and public dimensions: it tells about woman and revolution. Its themes, permanent features and variations are infinite. The metamorphoses of Lucretia are innumerable. Nonetheless, she has always preserved her essence and profound meaning, thus confirming her strength and her being a true myth. Lucretia has crossed the centuries, she has been told, painted and sung by artists from 509 b. C. until today. She reached the Eighteenth Century, Italy, Great Britain and Germany and she met three great authors: Carlo Goldoni, Samuel Richardson and Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. They chose her and decided to tell her story, each in his own peculiar manner. Goldoni wrote a dramma giocoso in musica, Lugrezia Romana in Costantinopoli, Richardson a novel, Clarissa or the History of a Young Lady and Lessing a bürgerliches Trauerspiel entitled Emilia Galotti. One myth, three authors, three different literary genres: this work would like to investigate and verify the connection among them and the meaning of it. The comparative analysis of the metamorphoses of Lucretia will disclose new concepts of private and public, of woman and revolution, sprung from an old but perpetual reviving myth.
