Happy birthday Chopin!!!!

Today is another important day for classical music, infact on March 1st 1810 a few kilometres far from Varsavia was born one of the great masters of Romantic music, Frédéric François Chopin.
Child-prodigy pianist and composer, called “The poet of piano“; during his career he invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne, polonaise, ètude, impromptu, scherzo and prélude.
Limenmusic pays tribute to this great musicians with a CD dedicated to his works, a precise guided crossing of compositive poetics,of the various nuances and different psychological and stylistic landscapes proposed by the Polish musician. Listen to the album running, or even randomly, the audience can perceive the entire universe of Chopin, all its prerogatives, all its innovative and inventive subtleties: innovative as for the technique, inventive because they create new horizons for the listening, the emotion, the feeling.
The performer is a talented Jaanese pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa. He took his first steps into the world of music in his homeland, then he moved to Italy, where he made himself well known, as a winner of many international competitions, playing in the most important halls (included the Teatro alla Scala in Milan), as a soloist and with high-level chamber groups.

About Takahiro Yoshikawa’s Album…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the new album of the Italian pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa, published on Brescia Oggi magazine.

I bresciani del pianoforte ricorderanno questo giovane pianista giapponese, che ha suonato lo scorso anno per la rassegna «Sul filo delle emozioni» di Paolo Sarubbi e Nadia Segalini e ancor prima era stato applaudito a Odolo e anche al teatro Grande di Brescia, col Quartetto d’Archi della Scala.
Ora esce per Limen doppio contributo registrato quest’anno: non solo il tradizionale cd audio ma anche la versione video in dvd.
Si tratta di registrazioni in studio e per questo particolarmente curate dal punto di vista del suono.
Il programma è quanto mai accattivante perché va da Beethoven a Chopin, a Liszt, fino al Gaspard de la nuit di Ravel.

Luigi Fertonani

Limenmusic on IBS

From today you can buy our latest discographical works on IBS.it at www.ibs.it/etichetta/Limen/i+dischi+Limen

In particular:

Danilo Rossi graduated with full distinction in 1985 and then completed and perfected his studies
with Dino Asciolla, Piero Farulli and Yuri Bashmet. He was only 20 years old when Riccardo Muti choose him as first viola soloist of both the Theatre and Philharmonic Orchestras of La Scala in Milan (a position he currently still holds), so becoming the youngest ever first violist in the history of this world-famous and prestigious institution. Winner of ten national and international competitions, including those of Vittorio Veneto, Stresa and Moscow, he was awarded for two years the Honorary Diploma from the Chigiana Academy. Danilo Rossi is regularly invited to perform at major international Festivals, as a soloist with other great musicians (Azzolini, Brandis, Bashmet, Brunello, Canino, Carmignola, Chung, Dindo, Gallois, Gerart, Ghiglia, Lucchesini, Muti, Tortelier), and with eminent formations (Arditti Quartet, Nuovo Quartetto Italiano, Trio Italiano, Vanbrugh Quartet. For many years he was a member of the String Trio and the String Quartet of La Scala, groups with which he performed in the most prestigious international halls, in Europe (Lugano, Munich,
Frankfurt, Madrid, Bern) and overseas (Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Montreal).
Since the beginning of the Nineties he has been performing for the major musical institutions, in duet with the pianist Stefano Bezziccheri, with which he proposes, in this new production for Limenmusic, the two Brahms’ Sonatas (op.120 n°1 and 2), that the German composer had originally written for clarinet and piano, and later transcribed for viola. This work is proposed in a dual format: CD and DVD.


.

Limenmusic is an offspring of Associazione Culturale Limen, founded in 1991, the brainchild of twenty yoears of musical research.
In this new production (CD+DVD), Limenmusic compares two of the greatest interpreters of the piano in Italy. Dado Moroni, one of the jazz  pianist most loved and renowned both in Italy and abroad; and Alfonso Alberti: pianist and musicologis knowed for his commitment ti the promotion of the twentieth century’s music, with a repertoire that ranges from historical avant-garde to the younger composers.
Accompanied by Aldo Zunino at the bass, Dado Moroni proposes five original tracks, that bear his signature, and that highlights his technical and  interpretative skills.
Alfonso Alberti offers us, in the intimate of th epiano solo, his interpretation of two works by two italian composersof the last century: Niccolò Castiglioni’s Cangianti and Quadermo musicale di Annalibera, a composition that the composer Luigi Dallapiccola dedicated to his daughter for her eighth birthday.
