Corrado Rojac, accordion
Variazioni

CD - Limen Classic & contemporary

.

.

.

.

First Italian earning an accordion Diploma at a State Conservatorio, Corrado Rojac is considered one of the most important italian accordionists. In addiction to an intense soloist and chamber activity, this eclectic artist is engaged to the development of contemporary accordion’s literature, working with many composers and offering first performances of many pieces, often also his.
In this CD, he takes the listener into an enthralling and suggestive journey to the discovery of the accordion, proposing tracks linked by a common thread: the musical topos of the variation.
The album opens with some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s (1685-1750) Partitas on “O Gott du frommer Gott”, originally written for the organ, and ends with a fundamental piece of the German accordion repertoire, Hans Brehme’s Paganiniana, touching leading authors, like: Ettore Pozzoli, Anatoli Kusjakov e Gianluca Verlingieri.

Program:

J. S. Bach
1 – Partite sopra “O Gott, du frommer Gott”

E. Pozzoli
2 – Tema e Variazioni

A. Kusjakov
3 – Sonata n. 1

G. Verlingieri
4 – Shift

H. Brehme
5 – Paganiniana

Alessandro Solbiati, the documentary ep. 3

From today, June 29. 2011 you’ll be able to enjoy on Limenmusic Web Tv the third episode of the special entirely dedicated to the renowned italian composer Alessandro Solbiati, edited by Alfonso Alberti, pianist and musicologist, and hosted by Valentina Lo Surdo.

During this meeting, Solbiati will talk about great composers who changed his life.

Limenmusic’s Blog proposes an excerpt (in italian version) from a book written by Alessandro Solbiati. “Ah, lei fa il compositore? E che genere di musica scrive? Quattro saggi su un’esperienza.” edited by Carlo De Incontrera and published by Teatro Comunale di Monfalcone.

Molte cose potrei dire sul mio incontro con Franco Donatoni. Cercherò di non dilungarmi, ma voglio rendere omaggio, anche attraverso alcuni aneddoti, ad uno straordinario connubio in lui tra la capacità di comunicare pensiero e tecnica e l’attitudine ad entrare in contatto umano con l’allievo; tale connubio costituisce a tutt’oggi per me un modello assoluto di insegnamento.

Credo infatti che nel campo delle creatività l’insegnamento richieda, da parte del docente, un particolare e difficilissimo equilibrio tra il rispetto per le attitudini dello studente da un lato e la necessità di formarlo tecnicamente dall’altro, ben sapendo che una tecnica non è mai neutra e che veicola sempre un’impostazione di pensiero.

Sebbene normalmente si pensi il contrario, Donatoni possedeva in pieno tale equilibrio.

Entrai nella su aula un giovedì pomeriggio, giorno nel quale la sua classe non era aperta solo agli allievi, ma a tutti i giovani interessati al comporre. In quel caso non si parlava di nozioni storiche di armonia e contrappunto ma solo, e con tutti, di composizione: era il clima liberatorio, un po’ confuso, ma certo stimolante, della metà degli anni ’70.

“Un libro utile, stimolante, nuovo, di lettura coinvolgente.Perché ripercorre l´opera italiana dell´Ottocento attraverso i suoi libretti. Anzi, attraverso, come si legge nel titolo, i paesaggi sonori, visivi, abitati, che in essi stanno, ambientano l´azione. La musica, ovviamente, c´è, ma come punto di riferimento. Il primo piano è dei luoghi, degli spazi, degli ambienti privati e pubblici, come importante trama dei testi, dunque della drammaturgia, su cui la stessa musica si misura…”

Means of defence and traumas II, by Sonia Arienta

Did you ever think that when we refer to operatic theatre in Italy our mind immediately runs straight on to two types of approach? The melomaniac one and the “indifferent” one. The last includes he who feels oneself ignorant, inadequate in this field thanks to one’s own choice or to an imposition due to a cultural lack produced by a deficit in national cultural politics. Behind the indifference of such a potential audience it’s often easy to find an awe towards the score pages. Towards all that belongs to the misterious world made of staves and notes. Full score too often is felt as a cage where the spectator fears of to be caught in, just in reason of the incapability of reading it, victim of the musical illiteracy imposed and decreeted from above. Towards operatic music it has been open a campaign of methodical displacement and disinformation…
