QUARTETTO IN FA MAGGIORE OP.96-ALLEGRO MA NON TROPPO

As a genre, the string quartet, or quartet in general, belongs to a classical age and to a definite geographical Austro-Germanic area, not simply as a result of the contributions made by the composers in this region, but also because of a kind of unique conception philosophy that they succeeded in giving to the idea of four instruments. It is no coincidence that Goethe decribed the Quartet as a "conversation between four intelligent people. In terms of both structure and concept it belongs to central Europe and the musical trends that were born here and developed over the years. When "folk" elements from outside this area, especially if from Easten countries come into contact with this form there il always an attempt to preserve their own structure by constructing variegations typical of the geographical areas they originate from. Russian and Czech music are the perfect example of this. In Russia, expecially in the latter half of the nineteenth century the confrontation between western and "autochthonous" cultures gave rise to a twin style; one side of which was sustained by P.I.Tchaikovsky and the other by the so-called Group of Five. Even if Tchaikovsky is supposed to have sustained the West while Mussorgsky, Rimsky Korsakov, Cui, Borodin and Balakirev defended the Holy Mother, Russia, the language of both factions, inevitably contains elements of the other on account of birth and schooling. A. Borodin's Second Quartet composed in 1881 is a good example.

MODINHAS E CANCOES-ESTRELLITA

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.

TRIPARTITA

"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.

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".
