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.

Intersections, by Alfonso Alberti

“The rose is without ‘why'”: Angelus Silesius and Niccolò Castiglioni’s Mysticism

Dulce refrigerium, sechs geistliche Lieder für Klavier (1984) is the place, within the piano production of Niccolò Castiglioni (1932-1996), where the spirituality of the Milan-born composer is more fully expressed.

To get into the meaning of this spirituality we ought to say that it is deeply rooted in mysticism, and especially in that of the German poet and mystic Angelus Silesius (1624-1677).

The rose is without “why”
She blooms because she blooms
She doesn’t care for herself
She doesn’t ask if anybody sees her
