About the 4th volume of DUETS’Line…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the 4th volume of DUETS’ Line, “Il pianoforte in Italia tra il jazz e il ‘900 eurocolto“, entirely dedicated to the piano, published on All About Jazz.

Interpreters: Dado Moroni and Alfonso Alberti
.

Originale iniziativa dell’etichetta Limen, questo cofanetto – ennesimo di una serie che include un CD e un DVD – nasce con l’intenzione di confrontare pianismo jazz e classico avvicinando cinque brani composti ed eseguiti da Dado Moroni (alcuni con l’accompagnamento al contrabbasso di Aldo Zunino) a brani di compositori come Niccolò Castiglioni e luigi Dallapiccola, eseguiti da Alfonso Alberti.

Moroni, che sta vivendo un periodo di particolare smalto, svolge la sua parte in modo superbo, sia per espressività sia per ricchezza di stilemi. “Brother Alfred”, condotto in solitudine, è ad esempio un condensato di storia del piano jazz, ma è anche di grande trasporto; “Walkin’ The Town”, un classico blues attraversato dall’ottimo contrabbasso di Zunino, è riuscitissimo, così come l’ultima traccia da lui interpretata dell’album, “Cedar’s Sphere”. Oltre mezz’ora di jazz ad alto livello.

Di stampo chiaramente diverso, invece, il contributo di Alberti, che dopo gli otto minuti di Castiglioni si dedica quasi interamente al “Quaderno musicale di Annalibera”, lavoro di Dallapiccola del 1952 composto di undici piccoli brani. La cui rarefazione contrappuntistica, pur incantevole, non potrebbe essere più in contrasto con quanto messo in scena da Moroni nella prima parte del lavoro.

Un lavoro, quindi, di curiosa contrapposizione. che si lascia apprezzare o separatamente, per la qualità dei diversissimi contributi, o proprio per il contrasto che glabalmente si produce tra le due sue parti.

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.
