Find “La viola romantica” in music stores and digital

Finally you can 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.

Backgrounds and foregrounds III

The attention paid towards the visual depth of field that can be found in operas set captions of composers working in Nineteenth Century last portion (like Puccini, Catalani, Mascagni, for example) can’t be considered like a simple and excessive desire of description, expressed by librettists (Giuseppe Illica in particularly). Nor it can be judged an act of pedantry imposed by documentary precision in order to describe or rather transcribe with words and ink on the paper the sets prepared for absolute première performance of each opera.
It instead reveals the composers interest towards all strategies enlarging the borders imposed by the architectural structure of theatre with upper-circle boxes (the opera house “all’italiana”), with the adoption of visual and acoustic depth of field opening.

Backgrounds and foregrounds II, by Sonia Arienta

The background is an objective element, big screen where the time of the (hi)Story flows, while the foreground focalises the attention towards details, where the individual acts. The background receives the time flux; the foreground describes the instant’s particular aspect, the plot’s development. Backclothes descriptions take allegorical characteristics, they delineate an objective “commentary”, the world nearby the individual intimate, private dimension. In Guillaume Tell first scene, the title role’s home is setted in foreground, nearby the torrent and other village’s houses; in the last scene it appears faraway, enveloped by flames, sign of extreme help’s request transmitted by Gemmy to Swiss countrymen. This house’s recession toward the foreground is a sort of warning concerning the renunciation of individual good in favour of the common one: the sacrifice of Tell’s home permits to free the Country from the tyrant’s arrogance.
