Danilo Rossi graduated with full distinction in 1985 and then completed and perfected his studies
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. Winner of ten national and international competitions, including those of Vittorio Veneto, Stresa and Moscow, he was awarded for two years the Honorary Diploma from the Chigiana Academy. Danilo Rossi is regularly invited to perform at major international Festivals, as a soloist with other great musicians (Azzolini, Brandis, Bashmet, Brunello, Canino, Carmignola, Chung, Dindo, Gallois, Gerart, Ghiglia, Lucchesini, Muti, Tortelier), and with eminent formations (Arditti Quartet, Nuovo Quartetto Italiano, Trio Italiano, Vanbrugh Quartet. 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,
Frankfurt, Madrid, Bern) and overseas (Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Montreal).
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.


Limenmusic is an offspring of Associazione Culturale Limen, founded in 1991, the brainchild of twenty yoears of musical research.
In this new production (CD+DVD), Limenmusic compares two of the greatest interpreters of the piano in Italy. Dado Moroni, one of the jazz  pianist most loved and renowned both in Italy and abroad; and Alfonso Alberti: pianist and musicologis knowed for his commitment ti the promotion of the twentieth century’s music, with a repertoire that ranges from historical avant-garde to the younger composers.
Accompanied by Aldo Zunino at the bass, Dado Moroni proposes five original tracks, that bear his signature, and that highlights his technical and  interpretative skills.
Alfonso Alberti offers us, in the intimate of th epiano solo, his interpretation of two works by two italian composersof the last century: Niccolò Castiglioni’s Cangianti and Quadermo musicale di Annalibera, a composition that the composer Luigi Dallapiccola dedicated to his daughter for her eighth birthday.

New recordings for Limenmusic Web Tv

Saturday, December 4th 2010, the renowed japanese pianist Aki Kuroda, has recorded in Limenmusic’s studio a concert for the Web Tv.

In homage to the Russian composer and pianist Alexander Scriabin, she performed for us:

Scriabin – Sonata for piano n.4 Op. 30 (1903)
Scriabin – Sonata for piano n.9 Op. 68 “Black Mass” (1912-1913)

The earliest pieces composed by Scriabin are written for the piano, and are influenced by one of the greatest composers for piano of all time, Frédéric Chopin. His music gradually evolved over the years, creating very original works, that employing very inusual harmonies and texture. The development of Scriabin’s style can be followed in his twelve piano sonatas: the earliest are composed in a fairly conventional late-Romantic idiom and show the influence of Chopin and, sometimes, of Franz Liszt; but the later ones move into original territories, infact  the last five being written without indication of tone.

Waiting for broadcasting of the concert on the Web Tv, you can listen to Aki Kuroda on Limenmusic.
