ECLOGHE PER FLAUTO CORNO INGLESE E CHITARRA

Rarely performed and unjustly, almost forgotten, Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco (1895-1968) was first and foremost an Italian composer, despite taking American citizenship in 1939 after anti-semitic persecution in his birth-country. His music clearly belongs with the mainstream of Italian compositions, written between the two Wolrd Wars, the school of what we moght define the moderate modernists. Despite having much in common with these composers , Castelnuovo Tedesco's music follows its own original road , an expression of the composer's delicate and refined personality and an approach to music which is consistently elegant, never descending into vulgarity or discordancy for fashion's sake. Arturo Tallini performed in Italy and in all European countries , both as a soloist and also appearing with Chamber groups and orchestra .He was a guest in many important international events . In 2006 he wrote and directed for Radio Vaticana a programme about guitar called "Guitar, an instrument of human feeling".

BARCAROLLES N. 13 IN C OP.116

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.

QUEIMADA

"Luci e ombre" 'pass trough spiritual paths in which past and present join inseparably showing the light and the dark side of inwardness'. So runs the preface to the piece for clarinet and guitar, perfect for this entire program. A path strongly influenced by Mediterranean climate, for the soft shades of French elegy, for suspended and incandescent sounds of Queimada and Habanera in Spain, for the magical and bloody Napolitan charm of Tarantella and oriental tones of the TriPartita. In the reference, explicit or only alluded, to neighboring cultural environments, the magic of a symbolic journey and the poetry of a metaphor can live together.

SETTE VARIAZIONI SU VIEN QUA DORINA BELLA OP.7

The piano works included in this CD show Carl Maria von Weber's talent as a virtuoso and communicative musician. Although this author has long remained unknown to the general public and was often excluded from the repertoire of the most famous pianists, its production is interesting because it contains the seeds of a number of important elements which the great Romantics are certainly indebted to. Carl Maria von Weber's works are performed by the Sicilian pianist Stefania Cafaro.

PALOMMA E NOTTE

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.

LIEDER PARADE-YOUKALI TANGO

This Cd is a musical journey that takes the listener across several cultural enviroments and contexts including the theatre , the café-chantant, floklore and the cinema. It draws on the musical heritage of Germany, France, Latin America and Italy and it aims to bring to the fore the character and spirit of each individual area. The journey starts from some famous songs written by the derisive Kurt Weil and continues with three French authors who were also connected for a certain period by a human and artistic bond: Eric Satie, George Auric, Francis Poulenc. Then we have an incursion in Latin-American with composer Manuel Maria Ponce and Heitor Villa Lobos. The programme closes with a fantasy based on film music by Nino Rota. Trio Chitarristico di Roma, made up of Fabio Renato D'Ettorre, Marco Cianchi and Fernando Lepri. It was founded in 1983 with the aim of introducing the repertoire that exists for this unusual formation to the ublic and at the same time to present guitar versions of pieces written for other insgruments. The Trio has performed all over Europe, sharing the stage with many internationally acknowledged artists. With Musikstrasse, they also published "Recital" and "Rara" musica del 900.
