“Voci d’oggi”, where contemporary music meets jazz

Contemporary music and jazz are meeting one more time on Limemusic Web Tv.

Limen music & arts, discographical italian label and Web Tv entirely dedicated to classical music and Jazz, in collaboration with Warner Chappell Music Italiana music edition, proposes an unpublished project: a musical reflection that drives the audience to discover the deep connexions between repertoires apparently differents and irreconcilable: contemporary music and jazz.
A series of duets, gathered in 7 box sets CD+DVD, in which some of the most important musical interpreters nationally and internationally, are compared to show the public how these two genre are reflected in each other, revealing unexpected points of contact and intersections.

This time we talk about “voice”…comparing two great performers: Barbara Casini, accompanied by Riccardo Bianchi at the guitar, and Stelia Doz, accompanied by Guido Salvetti at the piano.

Barbara Casini, devoted her life to the music, especially to the singing. Falls in love with Brazil, her second music homeland, she’s considered the most important performer of brasilian music in Italy. In this album she duets with one of the most appreciated and renowned guitarist, Riccardo Bianchi and Beppe Fornaroli, with whom she collaborated for several years.
They proposed unpublished tracks,  able to charm the audience with the typical passionate and enveloping notes of Brazilian music.

At the end will be the beautiful voice of the soprano, Stelia Doz, accompanied by the pianist and musicologist, Guido Salvetti, to close this album, with a touching interpretation of “In Mittagstraum”, one of three lieder on George, written by the italian composer Alessandro Solbiati, on lyrical by Stefan George.

New releases by Limen music & arts

This time we change musical genre, moving from classical to jazz, to announce the release of a new discographical work by Limen music & arts.

Infact, from March 21st, 2011 will be available in major music stores the new album (CD+DVD): “The ‘B’ Side of the fish”, by Alberto Marsico & Organ Logistics.
The DVD features all the live video recordings of the session, plus interviews and extra bonus tracks.

Organ Logistics started their musical activity in 2004. The line-up is Alberto Marsico (organ), Diego Borotti (sax), Lorenzo Frizzera (guitar) and Gio Rossi (drums).
Their repertoire follows the “jazz organ quartet” mainstream, with all its bluesy and funkish sound, but sometimes these four musicians take different musical directions, adding some contemporary jazz moods and atmospheres to their music.
Organ Logistics are based in Italy, but they often played in other countries, like Austria, Germany, France, Czech Republic and Russia. They also made ensemble music workshops in a lot of schools and Conservatories around Europe.

“This DVD, featuring the total video coverage of our recording session at Limen Studio, is a turning point of my musical career, and I’m happy I worked on this together with Michele Forzani.”
Alberto Marsico.
