Limenmusic proposes a concert by the young and talented pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell, considered one of the most natural musical talent by critics all over the world.
“Twenty-three years old pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell is recognised for her distinctive limpid sound and clarity of intentions of her prodigious playing that combines the blazing virtuosic command over the most demanding technical complexities and her natural musical insight. Her debut recording Virtuoso Piano Music, released in February 2011 by Brillian Classics, has gained internazionale acclaim for ” her great panache” and “sparkling techinque in demanding music” in which ‘she leaves no doubt of her enviable facility’”
In this concert recorded at Limenmusic Studio in 2009, Vanessa Benelli Moselli performs:
Sonata in G major n. 16 Op. 31 n. 1, written by Ludwig van Beethoven between 1801 and 1802. This work represents Beethoven’s new innovative and unconventional ideas, far from the classical style of music.
The Variations on a theme of Paganini are a set of theme and variation for solo piano, completed by Johannes Brahms in 1863. Clara Schumann has defined this scores “impossible to execute”. The theme is Niccolò Paganini’s Caprice n. 24 in A minor for violin solo; the variations are considered a landmark for their emotional depht and techical challenge.
This work is divided into two sections:
- Book I, Op. 25/1
- Book II, Op. 35/2 (that we propose in this concert)
Joseph Haydn is considered the father of sonata form.
While in the Classicism, music was dominated by the key, Haydn was focused on the conceive of new expressive solutions, creating the most important musical structures of the XIX Century.
Here we proposed Sonata in E minor n. 53 Hob. XVI:34
Piano Sonata n. 7 in B flat major Op. 83, was the second of three so-called War-Sonatas, written by Sergei Prokofiev between 1939 and 1942.
