Happy birthday Chopin!!!!

Today is another important day for classical music, infact on March 1st 1810 a few kilometres far from Varsavia was born one of the great masters of Romantic music, Frédéric François Chopin.
Child-prodigy pianist and composer, called “The poet of piano“; during his career he invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne, polonaise, ètude, impromptu, scherzo and prélude.
Limenmusic pays tribute to this great musicians with a CD dedicated to his works, a precise guided crossing of compositive poetics,of the various nuances and different psychological and stylistic landscapes proposed by the Polish musician. Listen to the album running, or even randomly, the audience can perceive the entire universe of Chopin, all its prerogatives, all its innovative and inventive subtleties: innovative as for the technique, inventive because they create new horizons for the listening, the emotion, the feeling.
The performer is a talented Jaanese pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa. He took his first steps into the world of music in his homeland, then he moved to Italy, where he made himself well known, as a winner of many international competitions, playing in the most important halls (included the Teatro alla Scala in Milan), as a soloist and with high-level chamber groups.

Happy birthday Rossini!!

Today is the 220 anniversary of the birth of the most popular opera composer in history, Gioachino Rossini.
Born into a family of musicians, he wrote his first opera when he was a youth of 14 years old.
From his twenty years old he wrote more than fourty operas; during the first representation of his works he gained contrasting reviews from the audience, ranging from extraordinary success like La pietra del paragone, La gazza ladra, Zelmira and Semiramide, to resounding failures, for example, The Barber of Seville, was a colossal failure when it premiered as Almaviva; Paisiello’s admirers were extremely indignant, sabotaging the production by whistling and shouting during the entire first act. However, not long after the second performance, the opera became so successful that the fame of Paisiello’s opera was transferred to Rossini’s, to which the title The Barber of Seville passed as an inalienable heritage.
Limenmusic pays tribute to this great Italian artist into the new album of Fabrizio Meloni, First Solo clarinet of the Orchestra and the philarmonica of La Scala Theatre in Milan, since 1984, and the talented pianist Takahiro Yoshikawa: Across virtuosity.
In this album, entirely dedicated to Fantasie for clarinet and piano that move from operatic melodies, we proposed a Fantasia from Semiramide written by Ferdinando Sebastiani, called by Rossini: “Le pére des clarinettes“, in 1838, in the middle of the “belcanto” season.

About “Across virtuosity”…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the new album of M°Fabrizio Meloni, First Solo clarinet of the Orchestra and the philarmonica of La Scala Theatre in Milan, since 1984 and the talented Japanese pianist M° Takahiro Yoshikawa published on Brescia Oggi magazine.

Virtuosismo alla prova dei brani d’opera

Il tema scelto dai due artisti per questa nuovissima produzione è quello del virtuosismo, su temi operistici di autori italiani. Il pensiero va subito alle celebri parafrasi da concerto per pianoforte solo di Franz Liszt delle quali è ospitata in questa registrazione quella dedicata a Rigoletto.
Tutto il resto del programma è per duo di clarinetto e pianoforte e lo strumento a fiato, grazie alla sua proverbiale agilità, fa la parte del leone in una serie che parte con Giuseppe Verdi, in particolare con il concerto – Fantasia di Luigi Bassi su Rigoletto, con variazioni spericolate su “Caro nome” seguite da quella di Donato Lovreglio sui temi di Traviata iniziando dal Brindisi e continuando con “Amami Alfredo” per una parte davvero impervia al clarinetto. Ma è tutto un programma di straordinaria bravura quello presentato da Fabrizio Meloni e da Takahiro Yoshikawa, un programma in cui non poteva mancare anche Rossini: la scelta è caduta sul Concerto – Fantasia di Ferdinando Sebastiani sui temi di Semiramide cui si aggiunge il notevole brano su Norma, dello Stesso Sebastiani.
