MAZURKAS IN C SHARP MINOR OP 50 N 3

This CD is a tribute to the legendary Russian pianist and his magic touch and contain invaluable first issues that stand in witness of Sofrinitzskij?s talent, only aknowledged after his death (Moscow, 1961). We are confronted to an artist who makes us still appreciate his peculiar way of playng the piano, making it almost sing, and his quick-phrased style, especially detectable in the pieces where he plays his favourite Chopin and Skriabin, who was his father-in-law. Top-quality remastering makes it possible to enjoy such unforgettable recordings dating back to 1959 in Moscow.

STUDIO PER CLARINETTO

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.

INTRODUCTION AND FANDANGO

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.

IMPROVVISO

"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.

ROMANCERO GITANO PER CORO 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".

CONCERTO IN SI MIN.PER VIOLINO,ARCHI E CONTINUO D.125-ALLEGRO ASSAI

This cd collects violin concerts by Giuseppe Tartini, really important figure within the Italian instrumental schools in the second half of the eighteenth century. Tartini, altough mantaining a high virtuosism, takes distance from the authentic Baroque tradition and anticipates the expressive atmosphere typical of the Classicism. Interpreti veneziani were founded in 1987 by Paolo Cognolato. They played Tartini's work in Venezia and Pirano, performing with a violin that belonged to Tartini himself.

LIEDER PARADE-MORITAT

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.
