About Franco Donatoni’s Sextet…

Franco Donatoni was an Italian composer, considered father of New Music.
His works were performed by leading artists, ensembles and conductor, such us Claudio Abbado, Salvatore Accardo, Dino Asciolla, Pierre Boulez, etc.
He reached musical maturity after a long period of exploration, trying to “look beyond” and reaching freedom and brightness into the writing.
His musical life can be divided into three different period:

  • Bartok’s Neoclassicism;
  • serialism, linked to the relationship with M° Bruno Maderna;
  • the negative period;
  • the discover of the invention, linked to the discover of a positive relationship with the art of composition.

This week, Limenmusic Web Tv, proposes to the audience a wonderful concert, dedicated to Franco Donatoni’s Sextet for 2 violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos. A rarely performed composition, written in 1985 during his “positive period” and performed for the first time in Cremona by Gruppo Musica Insieme.
In this concert, this opus is performed by String Sextet of La Scala Theatre Academy, musical group founded in 2000 and made up of Livio Salvatore Troiano (voilin), Aldo Sebastian Cicchini (violin), Luca Guidi (viola), Paolo Fumagalli (viola), Gianluca Muzzolon (cello) and Alejandro Mariangel Pradenas (cello).

Alessandro Solbiati, the documentary ep. 3

From today, June 29. 2011 you’ll be able to enjoy on Limenmusic Web Tv the third episode of the special entirely dedicated to the renowned italian composer Alessandro Solbiati, edited by Alfonso Alberti, pianist and musicologist, and hosted by Valentina Lo Surdo.

During this meeting, Solbiati will talk about great composers who changed his life.

Limenmusic’s Blog proposes an excerpt (in italian version) from a book written by Alessandro Solbiati. “Ah, lei fa il compositore? E che genere di musica scrive? Quattro saggi su un’esperienza.” edited by Carlo De Incontrera and published by Teatro Comunale di Monfalcone.

Molte cose potrei dire sul mio incontro con Franco Donatoni. Cercherò di non dilungarmi, ma voglio rendere omaggio, anche attraverso alcuni aneddoti, ad uno straordinario connubio in lui tra la capacità di comunicare pensiero e tecnica e l’attitudine ad entrare in contatto umano con l’allievo; tale connubio costituisce a tutt’oggi per me un modello assoluto di insegnamento.

Credo infatti che nel campo delle creatività l’insegnamento richieda, da parte del docente, un particolare e difficilissimo equilibrio tra il rispetto per le attitudini dello studente da un lato e la necessità di formarlo tecnicamente dall’altro, ben sapendo che una tecnica non è mai neutra e che veicola sempre un’impostazione di pensiero.

Sebbene normalmente si pensi il contrario, Donatoni possedeva in pieno tale equilibrio.

Entrai nella su aula un giovedì pomeriggio, giorno nel quale la sua classe non era aperta solo agli allievi, ma a tutti i giovani interessati al comporre. In quel caso non si parlava di nozioni storiche di armonia e contrappunto ma solo, e con tutti, di composizione: era il clima liberatorio, un po’ confuso, ma certo stimolante, della metà degli anni ’70.
