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.

Music and Film I: The Double Life of Veronique, by Alfonso Alberti

If you want to tell somebody how to go from one place to another, you typically refer to a sequence of streets, squares and buildings, using phrases such as “straight on”, “turn left after a hundred meters”, “beside the law courts building” and the likes. In Krzysztof Kieslowski’s film, The Double Life of Veronique, on the other hand, Véronique was mailed a tape cassette where only noises were recorded – and that’s all. She knows she has a rendezvous and that the cassette holds directions to the place and the route. Among the recorded noises a station’s loudspeaker can be heard: and so Véronique, also taking into account the stamp on the parcel, goes to St. Lazare’s railway station. The creaking of a door can be heard, and the dull “Excuse me, excuse me” of a waitress: and here she is, in that coffee shop near the station, with the creaking door and the waitress with a dull voice. An ambulance’s siren is on the tape; and then from the shop’s window she can see the remains of a car accident that just happened.

September releases…

From September 26. 2011 you will find in all music stores and digital two new productions:

The first is the fifth volume of DUETS, a collection of CD+DVD dedicated to the meeting between contemporary music and jazz.
This time we talk about “voice” with two leading performers: Barbara Casini and Stelia Doz.
Barbara Casini, has devoted her life to the music, especially to the singing. Falls in love with Brazil, her second music homeland, she’s considered the most important performer of brasilian music in Italy. In this album she duets with one of the most appreciated and renowned guitarist, Riccardo Bianchi and Beppe Fornaroli, with whom she collaborated for several years.
They proposed unpublished tracks, able to charm the audience with the typical passionate and enveloping notes of Brazilian music.
At the end will be the beautiful voice of the soprano, Stelia Doz, accompanied by the pianist and musicologist, Guido Salvetti, to close this album, with a touching interpretation of “In Mittagstraum”, one of three lieder on George, written by the Italian composer Alessandro Solbiati, on lyrical by Stefan George.

For more info about the album, please click here.

The second production  is the new CD of the Italian accordionist Corrado Rojac.
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.
In this CD, he takes the listener into a 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 and Gianluca Verlingieri.
