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dedicated to classical music and Jazz, in collaboration with Warner Chappell Music Italiana music edition, proposes an unpublished project: a musical reflection that drives the audience to discover the deep connexions between repertoires apparently differents and irreconcilable: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They proposed unpublished tracks,  able to charm the audience with the typical passionate and enveloping notes of Brazilian music.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.

Aki Kuroda presents Burgmüller Complete Études

Good morning, I’m Aki Kuroda.
I’m glad to announce you the release of my new album (CD+DVD) for Limen Music in Milano: Burgmüller Complete Études – 25, 18 and 12 Études.
Burgmüller is a composer very well-known to all the children who train in piano-playing.
In Japan in the Seventies, when I was young, it was fashionable to teach piano to the children.
It’s no exaggeration to say that at that time in Japan, in the homes, in the neighborhoods, in the classrooms of the primary schools, these Burgmüller’s  pieces were everywhere to be heard.
Now that I’m among the parents, remembering these lovely pieces as the childhood memories, I was struck by their beauty and by the musical essences that comprise them.
Friedrich Burgmüller was born in Germany where he lived until he was 26, and then moved to Paris where he wrote many piano composition for the Salon Parisien and for the ballet.
He was also very appreciated piano teacher.
Every Etudes is reach in accurately conceived piano techniquest, that enable the learning of the many musical “rubato”, with the appropriate expressions and the right singing quanties.
When I was recording them, I tried to play as if I were at the Salon Parisien, paying close attention to the required techniques and respecting the tempo marking prescribed by the author.
Especially 12 Etudes are very virtuosic. Please, look at the movements of the fingers, through the images of the DVD. I hope that the music abd the pictures are to your liking.
Have a good time!

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.

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,

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.
