Coming soon in music stores and digital

From May 7. 2012 you will find in all music stores and digital the new album of  Danilo Rossi and Stefano Bezziccheri, “La viola romantica” (CD+DVD).
Continue the valuable collaboration between Limenmusic and two leading musicians, First Viola Soloist of La Scala Theatre in Milan, M° Danilo Rossi and the pianist Stefano Bezziccheri.
In this third volume they proposed to the public a repertoire organized around the theme of romanticism, an adjective that over time has been subject of so intense historical debates and critical ambiguities.
Here are the executions of three authors who, while remaining distant musically and personally, are linked by the use of the same romantic language: Schumann, Schubert and Glinka: a very close and continuous dialogue between soloist and accompaniment able, once again, to create a slow and thoughtful atmosphere.

About “La viola del ‘900”

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the latest album of Danilo Rossi and Stefano Bezziccheri, “La viola del ‘900”, published on ARCHI Magazine.

*****
Ciò che il Duo Rossi – Bezziccheri propone in questo CD della Limen è un affascinante viaggio attraverso la più significativa produzione per viola e pianoforte di quel secolo, il Novecento, che “sull’onda di suggestioni emotive ma anche pragmatiche e data la acrenza di un consistente repertorio concertistico…guarda alla viola con attenzione crescente” (Anna Menichetti). Tra le ragioni dell’accresciuto interesse di alcuni compositori per questo strumento sarà utile ricordare: “il suo ruolo aggregante svolto sempre con abnegazione nel costruire il suono-ponte fra archi bassi e acuti in orchestra aggregante svolto sempre con abnegazione nel sostituire il suono-ponte fra archi bassi e acuti in orchestra” e la sua particolare capacità di dar vita ad un “canto profondo e ambiguo, maschile e femminile insieme, discreto e caldo nei diversi protagonisti timbrici e di registro” (Menichetti).
Le composizioni contenute in questo interessantissimo CD appartengono a tre diversi ma significativi momenti storici; al primo e al secondo dopoguerra risalgono rispettivamente la Sonata Op. 11 n. 4 di Hindemith (1919) e Lacrymae op. 48 di Britten (1950), mentre la nascita della Sonata Op. 147 di Schostakovich (1975), può essere collocata in piena Guerra Fredda. Tre lavori nati dunque in contesti storici caratterizzati da un diffuso sentimento di smarrimento delle coscienze di reale difficoltà nella progettazione di un avvenire migliore.
Un campionario emotivo perfettamente rintracciabile nelle pagine musicali di Britten, Hindemith e Shostakovich che  pure nella loro diversità presentano non pochi elementi in comune; dal ricorso alle strutture architettoniche classiche all’impiego di stilemi attinti dal repertorio popolare; dalla presenza di ritmi convulsi a passi di sublime staticità o ancoradall’uso del canto spiegato con veemente intensità alla dolcezza sublime del canto appena confessato.
Danilo Rossi e Stefano Bezziccheri offrono in questo CD dalla generosa durata, una prova magistrale della loro intelligenza di musicisti (nella scelta di un programma così accattivante e ben congegnato), del loro talento d’interpreti (per la cura dei dettagli, dei fraseggi e delle sonorità) e della loro sensibilità di artisti (per l’altissimo livello delle esecuzioni), facendo rivivere mediante l’uso di laceranti accenti, di nostalgiche inflessioni attraversate qua e là da guizzi di struggente sarcasmo, i drammi, le angosce , le inquietudini ma anche le speranze di una difficile e complessa epoca storica.
A rendere ancor più suggestivo il disco, il gesto del respiro di Danilo Rossi lasciato integro dai tecnici della Limen e perfettamente avvertibile in questa incisione, che oltre a ricordare il mormorio della voce di un Pollini o i borbottamente di un Gould suggerisce un pensiero, che va ben oltre il testo musicale e tocca profondamente l’animo.

The stone host Aristotele, by Sonia Arienta

The aristotelic concept of unity of place, grounding of classical and neoclassical theatre theories, becomes one of the favorit targets in Romantic and late Romantic age. In this regard how is italian opera composers and librettists behaviour along the whole Nineteenth Century? What pathes eachone of them follows in their production? Beyond aesthetical and poetic acceptance, what do the authors’ choises, reveal? what kind of lecture towards the world and reality do they give? In fact, is important to remember that operists’ products and critics’ theories, not only in musical context, always express historic and cultural contexts…

Happy birthday Chopin!!!!

Today is another important day for classical music, infact on March 1st 1810 a few kilometres far from Varsavia was born one of the great masters of Romantic music, Frédéric François Chopin.
Child-prodigy pianist and composer, called “The poet of piano“; during his career he invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne, polonaise, ètude, impromptu, scherzo and prélude.
Limenmusic pays tribute to this great musicians with a CD dedicated to his works, a precise guided crossing of compositive poetics,of the various nuances and different psychological and stylistic landscapes proposed by the Polish musician. Listen to the album running, or even randomly, the audience can perceive the entire universe of Chopin, all its prerogatives, all its innovative and inventive subtleties: innovative as for the technique, inventive because they create new horizons for the listening, the emotion, the feeling.
The performer is a talented Jaanese pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa. He took his first steps into the world of music in his homeland, then he moved to Italy, where he made himself well known, as a winner of many international competitions, playing in the most important halls (included the Teatro alla Scala in Milan), as a soloist and with high-level chamber groups.
