About “La viola del ‘900″…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the latest album of M° Danilo Rossi , accompanied at the piano by Stefano Bezziccheri, published on MUSICA magazine.

Danilo Rossi, prima viola dell’Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, da anni frequenta come solista praticamente l’intero repertorio dedicato al proprio strumento. In questa nuova incisione egli propone tre pagine fondamentali appartenenti alla letteratura del Novecento.
La Sonata Op. 1  n. 4 di Paul Hindemith, violista lui stesso, fu completata nel 1919. É uno studio sulla variazione: il secondo e il terzo movimento sono, infatti, rispettivamente un Thema mit Variationen e un Finale mit Variationen, e sono collocati dopo un’ammaliante Fantasia iniziale di gusto rapsodico. Danilo Rossi e Stefano Bezziccheri non rinunciano qui alla passione e a un suono carnoso che occhieggia ancora al secolo precedente.
Nelle Lacymae op. 48 (1950) anche Benjamin Britten si misura con la forma antica della variazione, traendone una pagina sfuggente e carica di tensione. Il tema “If my complaints could passion move” di John Dowland viene suddiviso in due sezioni, la prima delle quali serve da base per dieci variazioni mentre la seconda si discioglie in una distensiva coda: Rossi sa mantenere una temperatura emozionale elevatissima in tutto il brano, mettendo in evidenza anche le rifrazioni del proprio Maggini. L’estremo lavoro di Dmitri Shostakovich, l’enigmatica Sonata Op. 147 (1975), da modo, infine, a Rossi e Bezziccheri di esprimersi anche in un clima più crepuscolare, a volte astratto, ma pur sempre molto intenso.
La buona registrazione è inficiata da un rumore di fondo talvolta fastidioso (credo che si tratti di soffi del solista).
