The stone host Aristotele, by Sonia Arienta

The aristotelic concept of unity of place, grounding of classical and neoclassical theatre theories, becomes one of the favorit targets in Romantic and late Romantic age. In this regard how is italian opera composers and librettists behaviour along the whole Nineteenth Century? What pathes eachone of them follows in their production? Beyond aesthetical and poetic acceptance, what do the authors’ choises, reveal? what kind of lecture towards the world and reality do they give? In fact, is important to remember that operists’ products and critics’ theories, not only in musical context, always express historic and cultural contexts…

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 Burgmüller Complete Etudes…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the latest album of the Japanese pianist Aki Kuroda , entirely dedicated to Burgmüller complete etudes, published on Brescia Oggi.

Gli studi scritti da Burgmüller

Un’altra bellissima operazione proposta da Limen. Per la quale occorre anzitutto sapere chi era Johann Friedrich Franz Burgmüller, compositore tedesco che fu a Parigi fin dal 1832.
E, se scrisse un numero impressionante di brani, uno dei suoi maggiori meriti è proprio quello di aver scritto una tale serie di studi per pianoforte tali da costituire una “scuola” che qui viene proposta in modo completo dalla brava artista giapponese, che ha registrato i 25 Studi facili e progressivi op. 100 e poi i 18 Studi di genere che sono il seguito.
Nel secondo CD gli Studi Brillanti e Melodici op. 105, ma anche le Fantasie sull’Ernani e su Giselle.
