Questions, by Sonia Arienta

In the order of cultural politics concerning theatre and, especially the operatic one, it seems interesting to ask ourselves what are the choices taken by the institutions at national and local level. What are the ideas, the concepts, the peculiar leading lines of certain historic age and a certain political contexts. What kind of consequences they involve in a long period perspective. What kind of interferences, impulses, obstacles, supports, difficulties spring out between cultural operators and institutions. What may indicate the negligence and the general indifference shown towards vital sector for the intellectual development of a Country and in the individual ones. In the social relations, in the evolution and in the improvement of every citizen. It should be suitable that everyone thinks about the offers of cultural products available in the area and in the Country where he lives.

Ciro Longobardi’s album on Radio France…

On September 5. 2011 into “Les lundis de la contemporaine“, a program of Radio France dedicated to the contemporary music, has been recommended the album of Ciro Longobardi, dedicated to Ivan Fedele’s Complete piano works…

For the page of the program, please click here.

Eclectic and versatile artist, Ivan Fedele was born primarily as a pianist, in fact in his works dedicated to this instrument he expresses all his creative sensibility, creating suggestive atmospheres and reaching out high levels poetically, stylistically and technically. In this album, the italian pianist Ciro Longobardi, take us in this wonderful journey through Ivan Fedele’s works, starting from the intense and bright colors of South Pole’s landscapes, evoked by the Études series: 5 Études Boreales (1990) and 5 Études Australes (2003) to the beginning, with Toccata (1983), extremely important piece from an affective point of view for Ivan Fedele, because full of memories of his early experiences on the piano. Includes also performances of Nachtmusik (2008) and Cadenze I-IX: a quarter of a century (1983-2008) of music by Fedele, accompanied by a double interview with the composer by Cesare Fertonani and Virginio Sala.

Robert HP Platz’s music: Wunderblock and memory

Robert HP Platz (b. 1951), German musician who allies an intense activity as a conductor to the activity as a composer, weaves in his pieces references to the most different disciplines.

Hallmark of his poetics is, simply, that since 1989 up today Platz has been working at a single great work, of which each composition is but a partial expression. It doesn’t mean that the composer has been writing an expanded piece made of many parts, which, as soon as completed, in the end will be performed as a unity: the «formal polyphony» that Platz aims to has mostly a conceptual meaning and does not aim to become one in a final summary performance.

The beginning is a pivotal piece, Kern («core»), upon which a kind of «mantle» (Hülle, in German) is progressively spread, where then echoes (Echo) and consequences of the most different kinds spring from. In some subsections of this total work, the polyphony between piece and piece is concretely implemented: the Up Down Strange Charm piece is but the Up piece performed at the same time with the Down and Strange and Charm pieces, all together. (Let’s remark, here, the intersection between music and not less that subatomic physics: up, down, strange and charm are four quark “flavours”, the ultimate components of the matter.)
