LA DANZA

The songs on this record cover an entire century of Neapolitan melodies and two important historical periods in its evolution. The first, in the nineteenth century, saw the coming together of the folk tradition and the tipically melodramatic style of singing. This is the period in which composers such as Mercadante, Donizetti and Rossini all make use of Neapolitan style and forms. Another section of the Cd is dedicated to the repertoire drawn from the period between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. This was a golden age in the production of Neapolitan music. These are the years of Salvatore Di Giacomo and Francesco Paolo Tosti, two great scholars and interpreters of Neapolitan culture.

BARCAROLLES N. 7 IN D OP.90

In the panorama of the late nineteenth century piano music, Gabriel Fauré's work is particularly rich in distinctive detail and innovation. Just as Proust tempted his readers to the pleasure of literature with digressions and deliberately "irritating" descriptions, Fauré's compositions for pianoforte are a quest for harmonic and tonal suggestionwithin a structure that never disturbs the pleasure of listening or performance. Unfortunately his scores are not often played in the concert hall, perhaps because of the commitment and attitude they demand of both the performer and the listener. The Barcarolles, like Fauré's Nocturnes, seem to have run parallel to the life of the composer and in these genres it is easy to find two moods and two manners of expression blended together. Massimiliano Damerini. Graduated in piano studies and composition under Alfredo They and Martha Del Vecchio in his hometown of Genova. Regarded as one of the most representative musicians of his generation, he has played in many of the major international theatres and concert Halls.

QUINTETTO PER ARCHI E CHITARRA

Boccherini's correspondance qith his publisher, Pleyel in Paris, bears witness to the fact that the Six Piano Quintet op. 56, like the similar series op.57, belong to his period of intense creativity in Madrid. The fact that the score was sent to Paris, also shows that the composer was intent on establishing his reputation there, given that the piano was very much in vogue in the city at the time. We also know, however, that the same Quintest had already been performed in Madrid, in the palace of the Mrquis Benavente, in the version for strings and guitar. This version was something of a private affair and was undoubtedly due to the Marquis' predilection perhaps even his gift for the guitarl. The piano version has the merit of giving us an insights into works which would otherwise have been lost forever. The performance does not trumpet the differences, but rather, as Boccherini hoped, exalts the evrchanging nature of light and shade and of stasis and motion.

RONDO

"Rara" musica del `900 is a collection of seven works by European composers to pan various expressions of musical modernity. First issues, scores received as manuscripts from the authors as the works by Gangi (1923), Cavallone (1957), D'Ettorre (1959) and Kleynjans (1951), along with compositions already published, though hardly popular as "Follow the star" by Stephen Dogson(1924) e "Rondo" by Paul Hindemith (1859-1963). Though different in style, they share communicative strenght and intelligibility. The CD ends with "Ultima Rara" (pop song) by Bussotti (1931) which includes a literary text superbly vocalized by actor Paolo Poli.

QUINTET IN D MAJOR G.448

This is a didactic cd including some compositions of Luigi Boccherini as instrumental bases that on one hand can contribute to the formation or extension of a chamber music repertoire and on the other hand create a stimulus to play real ensemble music. The pieces were recorded without the guitar. This was added later in order to show that gratifying results can be obtained by playing over a pre-recorded base. This CD is very easy to use: you need to tune your guitar to an A at 440 hz using a diapason.

LARGHETTO E ALLEGRO PER FLAUTO, FAGOTTO E PIANOFORTE

In the bicentenary of Donizetti's birth, Musikstrasse pays homage to the musician from Bergamo with a CD including the instrumental compositions by the author, whose faim is mainly due to operas. Thanks to the delicate, elegant performance of the chamber group Polimnia Ensemble, the recording allows to enjoy chamber pieces ranging from the Clarinet Study to the Oboe and Piano Sonata and the first issue of the Wind Quartet XVII°, that stands in witness of the so-called "Ottocento strumentale italiano" (the Italian Instrumental Tradition of the nineteenth century ), that is to say, of the existence of a musical tradition generally overshadowed by the fame of operas and that is finally being given adequate importance.
