Folias Italianas - Ruggero Lagana, harpsichord

Type: CD
Subcollection: Harpsichord

In music, the term folia refers to a melodic pattern derived from a very old Carnevale dance, very likely originated in Portugal. Leaving its Lusitanian origins, the so called Follia di Spagna became particularly successful thanks to its the melody and the naive simplicity of its harmony, as can be clearly heard in the many anonymous folia taken from collections dating to the early 1700's by the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid. Organists and harpsichordists of various nationalities have been inspired by the Folia, but this CD focuses on its use in Italian music, in particular, from the Rome and Naples: Girolamo Frescobaldi (Ferrara, September 13th, 1583 - Roma, March 1st, 1643): PARTITE SOPRA FOLLIA and PARTITE SOPRA PASSACAGLI; Bernardo Storace (around 1637 - 1707): FOLLIA and CIACCONA, two pages of rare beauty and rarely performed; Giovanni Maria Trabaci (Montepeloso, 1575 - Naples, December 31st 1647): CONSONANZE STRAVAGANTI and PARTITE SOPRA FIDELE; Alessandro Scarlatti (Palermo, 1660 - Naples, 1725): TOCCATA PER CEMBALO D'OTTAVA STESA (1723), VARIAZIONI SULLA FOLLIA DI SPAGNA; Bernardo Pasquini (Massa and Cozzile, December 7th 1637 - Rome, November 22nd 1710): PARTITE SOPRA LA ARIA DELLA FOLIA DE ESPAGNA, PARTITE DIVERSI DI FOLLIA and Ascanio Majone (around 1565 - 1627), Neapolitan composer and harpist: PARTITE SOPRA FIDELE. The CD includes a few exempla of anonymous works from Spain (FOLIAS, OTRAS FOLIAS, etc.) and England (THE SPANISH FOLLYE, 1685) in order to make the comparison of different cultures and times more meaningful, as well as to highlight the diversity of stylistic approaches.
The performer and composer, Ruggero Laganà, relives the theme of madness - a splendid obsession throughout the ages of music from the West - giving a passionate, richly creative and inventive interpretation in the best Baroque tradition.

Booklet: Italiano / English

Setting conspiracy theories aside, which every once in a while work their way even into musicology, it is beyond all doubt that the astonishing development of German music to say the very least overshadowed Italian music and put excellent Italian musicians in a distant second place, that is when it did not send them directly to oblivion. Think of Händel (not to mention young Mozart) and his widely acknowledged debt to Italy, where both of them completed their musical training. Or again, Hayden and Nicola Porpora. Think too of Clementi, the "father of the piano", in some respects symbolic of all Italian musicians, relegated to the role of a boring, pedantic pedagogue who liked chastising young pianists, that is until Horowitz set off the recent Renaissance by recording his music. And yet it was Clementi who dueled with Mozart for the entertainment of the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II (for the record, in a verdict worthy of Solomon that says it all, he declared the outcome even). And it was he who put a young, adoring Beethoven "under contract".
Without quite attaining the same heights, this is also the story of Domenico Alberti, who is today remembered for the most part as an ‘adjective' as in ‘basso albertino' - which, moreover, he probably did not invent. The recording of the entire Opera prima is not only a long overdue tribute and recognition of Italian talent, but also a pleasant dive into Galante Style, emphasizing melody and sentiment, which still conquers and seduces, just as it did way back then.

The Art of the Fugue marks a monument of compositional mastery. For Peter Kofler, the priorities are the sound of the music and its sensual vitality. He performs on a harpsichord made by Karl August Gräbner in Dresden in 1782.
