Limenmusic recommends: Vanessa Benelli Mosell

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'”
Gramophone Magazine

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.

New releases….Tatiana Larionova

Tatiana Larionova starts her great passion for music, especially for piano, when she was only 5 years old in her homeland, URSS, where she finished the studies. Currently she Lives in Italy, where she regularly performs for the most important societies, and passionately dedicated herself to chamber music and teaching.
In this album (CD+DVD), with the delicate and intense executions of this talented pianist, we are going to trace one by one true cornerstones of modern pianism.
With Joseph Haydn‘s Sonata in E minor Hob. XVI: 34, published in 1783, we are at the beginning of the history of the piano, in a sort of interregnum between the Baroque and the Classical-Romantic style.
Then we have a fundamental turning point for the birth of the concert piano in the modern sense of the term, with Franz Liszt. The first author that gives to the soloist the importance that he deserves. In this production we proposed to the listener one of the most difficult pieces of the piano repertoire: Aprés une lecture du Dante “Fantasia quasi Sonata”, a more than famous composition inspired to the Divina Commedia.
The proposed course closes with Rachmaninoff‘s Six Moments musicaux Op. 16, in which the research of the instrument and its potentiality, carried out by Liszt during his creative career, is brings to its extreme results.

This Etude was ispired by Victor Hugo’s poem called Mazzeppa, the story of  Ivan Mazeppa (1639-1709): a page of the court of King John II Casimir Vasa, who seduced a Polish Countess named Theresa. The Count, on discovering the affair, punished Mazeppa by tying him to a wild horse and setting the horse free. The poem describes the dramatic condition of  the hero strapped to a horse. At the end, Mazeppa was crowned king.
Mazzeppa is considered one of the most difficult of the twelve Etudes, not only technically, bu also musically.

This is the 4th piece of the first suite of Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage: Suisse, composed between 1841 and 1854 an published in 1885.

Characters and audience – I

Plot and characters behaviours choices, pointed out by te music of operists endowed of a critical mind, open neverendig cues about the effects towards the contemporary and the past audience, fundamental to understand relations between artistic productions and their utilizations. If listening Ernani, Il Trovatore, or La Forza del Destino, makes impossible to cultivate sloth, or to feel servants, the Il Barbiere di Siviglia happy end is doubly satisfying because the Conte di Almaviva and Rosina engagement is flanked by the old, very mean Dr. Bartolo humiliation, caused by the lost of his ward’s dowry. In Don Pasquale, Norina and Ernesto triumph over the old uncle tortured and derided, but as a matter of fact, they seem to be avoided of generous gestures. Ernesto is a-good-for-nothing, Norina shows herself more as interfering than in loved girl. The punishment of the obese protagonist in Verdi’s Falstaff executed by the merry wives bunch of Windsor provokes a regret and trouble in the spectator, prompted until this moment to see the old Sir with mercy and pity, if not with benevolence.
