At the presentation of the CD+DVD box set:

“Johannes Brahms – SONATE”
Op.120 N°1 and 2
Limen Classic & contemporary

at La Scala Shop, November 18th, 2010 at 18:00 (GMT+2), together with Danilo Rossi, will partecipate Stefano Bezziccheri, who has collaborated with his piano to the creation of this ambitious project, whose Sonatas N°1 and 2 by Brahms are just the first step.
The idea of creating a collection of great music for viola and piano arises from the awareness that they deeply explored this repertoire during the concerts that filled the main national and international theaters.

This fruitful collaboration has lasted over twenty years, performing hundreds of recitals in Italy and Europe, playing the complete repertoire music for viola and piano.
In duo with Danilo Rossi and with chamber music groups he played in theatrical performances of words and music with Alessandro Baricco, Stefano Benni, Ascanio Celestini and recently with Licia Maglietta at Teatro alla Scala di Milano.
He played as solo piano in prestigious orchestras: Orchestra dell’Accademia del Teatro alla Scala, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Orchestra d’Archi Italiana, Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Parma, Orchestra Haydn di Bolzano e Trento, Orchestra del Teatro di San Remo, Orchestra I Solisti di Pavia.
Currently Stefano Bezziccheri is teacher in G.B. Martini Conservatory of Bologna.

During a meeting with Virginio Sala, talking about the role of the piano in the relationship between the piano and the viola Stefano Bezziccheri said:

Playing with the viola surely requires a more attentive listening, because the main feature of the viola – it can seem trivial – is the sound, the dark color of its voice, it is an alto, a middle voice, in the orchestra too, and in some moments the sound of the piano can drown it – it can happen that the sound of the viola is not rightly emphasized. Brahms’s piano writing is always unconvenient – I think that the piano players will agree with me – it is always treacherous, doesn’t ever let you at ease, because Brahms doesn’t write as a pianist, or at least not always, so there is always a trap around the corner, technically speaking, because apparently he isn’t interested in things easy to play. <…>
