2005 Van Cliburn Piano Competition Finalist

Ignacio Cervantes Kawanagh (Havana, 1847-1905) is not quite known outside the American continent. Only occasionally a Dance of his will show up in a concert program or within a recording, though he was a significant figure of his times - times of change and inspired by revolutionary ideals in politics and art. From the point of view of the history of music, his importance is justly attributed to the "creole-ization" of Cuban music - or rather a fusion of styles, that show the local patrimony at its best by melding it with external influences, in constant tension by searching for a new identity (we could call it a type world music ante litteram). However destiny would have him be more than just an enfant prodige. It also led him to be twenty years old in '68 - a date that has the power of overturning the status quo even in other centuries and at other latitudes. Encouraged by the American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk (from whom a second surname) to study at the Paris Conservatory, one of the best at that time. There he worked with highly respected musicians such as Antoine François Marmontel and Charles-Valentin Alkan, studying composition and harmony and graduating with brilliant results. In his career he played with many artists, but especially two merit mentioning: the Swedish Christina Nilsson and our own Adelina Patti, both famous singers, and rivals. As concert musician and virtuoso he travelled around the world, even for a noble cause: raising funds for the war for independence from Spain that began in '68 with the War de los Diez Años (1868-1878), the first of three wars for independence.
The Danzas surely represent his masterpiece. They are presented here for the first time as complete recording, splendidly performed by Davide Cabassi.
The introduction on the booklet has been written by the well-known Cuban musicologist José Ruiz Elcoro. For the first time a pianist of international projection , not a native Cuban, assumes such an undertaking by doing it brilliantly and with high interpretative sensibility and extraordinary technique. This book Cervantes 40 Danzas Cubanas by Publications De Blanck even revealed various unknown works.
A climatic moment in this CD production is the participation of the Russian pianist Tatiana Larionova, joining Cabassi. Together they solve with absolute cohesiveness, all the rhythmic labyrinths, seemingly simple, of the Three dances for four hands: (*) Los Delirios de Rosita, La Camagüeyana y Muñecos.

Alberto Bologni, violin, Santo Serafino 1734
Giuseppe Fausto Modugno, fortepiano, Johann Schantz 1815

It's known that in the Hoboken catalogue, except for Hob:32 - which has been for a long time considered as the sole authentic Sonata for violin and piano by Haydn and published in Vienna in 1794 by Artaria - there isn't any further Sonata for these instruments; surely a bit surprising since we are talking about the composer who has been from everyone acknowledged as the father of string quartet. However Alberto Bologni and Giuseppe Modugno have discovered within the archives of the Civico Museo Bibliografico in Bologna, the copy of a printed edition dating to the early 1800's which are supposedly including other three Sonatas, i.e. XVa. Among these at least the entire Sonata in C major had been performed by the well-known Italian violinist Sandro Materassi together with his friend Luigi Dallapiccola. Remarkable the fact that both of the last concerts he performed in his career opened with the Sonata in C. Let's leave to the musicologists any discussion to this regard, we should just enjoy this delightful music which is enhanced by the extraordinary instruments which have been used for this recording: an original fortepiano Johann Schantz dated from 1815 (which was considered as the "Stradivari" among fortepianos in Vienna during the 19th century and even Franz Joseph Haydn was fond of such precious instrument) and a beautiful violin Santo Serafino dated from 1734. The recording is well performed by two excellent artists as Giuseppe Modugno and Alberto Bologni who give us moments of real good music.

Ildebrando Pizzetti - Sonata in A for piano and violin - Sonata in F for piano and cello

Ildebrando Pizzetti - Sonata in A for piano and violin - Sonata in F for piano and cello
ID: CNT2057
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: String instruments

Not even three years stand between the two Sonatas presented together in this CD. In this short period of time the composer's personal life was turned completely upside down by the sudden and unexpected death of his wife.
We can feel just the same dramatic tension animates the Sonata in A from beginning to end; "Tempestoso", a dialogue between two characters - the piano and the violin - opens the first movement and the dramatic tension, riddled with a suffering humanity. Pizzetti's dualism between dramatic excitement and soothing meditation is strongly reinforced in the second movement: entitled by the composer "Preghiera per gli Innocenti" [Prayer for the Innocents. Here, too, is the echo of a distant polyphonic response. In the end comes the catharsis, through the gentleness of the prayer, the final, liberating movement where Pizzetti opens to a different, but just as basic, sensibility, one enlivened by hints of the rustic life, riddled with popular whims.
Finished in March 1919 and published by the English editor Chester, the Sonata was first performed in July 1919 played by Ernesto Consolo and Mario Corti and was to become part of the repertoire of many famous performers.
The emotional circumstances surrounding the creation of the Sonata for Cello can be seen in the very structure of the piece in the arch drawn by the three movements. When Pizzetti began to compose the Sonata in F on July 27th, 1921, only a few months had passed since his wife, a young pianist had tragically died. The composer introduces the Cello in the opening "Largo", which is clearly a dialogue between the two instruments. The piano evokes and talks of things, while the cello is suffering personified. It is a dialogue infused with a secret restlessness. This gentleness however does not stop the grief from erupting violently in the second movement "Molto concitato e angoscioso" with the piano's tumultuous, unisonous quadruplets over which the various, harsh notes of the cello are introduced: ephemeral moments of suspense, interrupted by the plundering return of the quadruplets. It is only in the final bars of the soul's torment seems to abate. With the beginning of the third movement, the cello has melted, and becomes "stanco e triste" in an anxious monologue where it gradually evolves into sweet melodic whisper. The piano enters discretely with arpeggiated sequences to slowly, gently, "con crescente emozione" arrive at a delicate embrace that lets comforting light shine through to the "perdendosi" finale.
The Sonata was first performed at the Società del Quartetto in Milan in December 1921 by Ernesto Consolo and Enrico Mainardi.
