World Premiere Recording

"Their work touches us because it is a mix of brutality, magic, sensuality and honesty - all of which are human." So spoke John Adams, one of the most important contemporary American composers, in comparing Neruda's poetry, Marquez's novels, Borges' writing and Piazzolla's music. All of these South American artists came to the attention of North American and European cultural circles almost simultaneously in the 1970's.
Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) became popular in Europe when a few important performers - whose repertory was largely classical: Gidon Kremer, Yo Yo Ma, Daniel Barenboim - grew more interested in fusing musical styles. In fact the Argentinean musician's training was replete with classical influence. His music language has surely become very popular among various generations - it crosses various territories and music influences by conveying popular music together with a more cultured one: going from a kind of restlessness from the twentieth century to some Indios and African light influences based on ancient cultures from European descents who approached the river mouth of Rio de la Plata through various generation of migrants.
We experience the same cultural influence by listening to the Concerto by the Argentinean
contemporary composer Máximo Diego Pujol (Buenos Aires, 1957) which entitles the whole CD Luminosa Buenos Aires by being a world premiere too.
This very nice recording is enriched by awesomeness and quotations and brings to a sort of "sad feelings to be expressively transmitted through a dance" this is Tango, which starting from the beginning of the past century has been fascinating everyone in the world.

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.

Booklet: Italiano / English

The rediscovery in recent years of the enormous catalogue of Nino Rota's music held by the Cini Foundation in Venice is perhaps finally inverting an inversely proportional trend between the composer's popularity as author of film music and as classical music composer. In fact, if on the one hand the happy, thirty-year-long artistic marriage between Federico Fellini and himself inevitably led to identifying the composer with the sound tracks of many twentieth century masterpieces of the "seventh art" (La Strada, La dolce vita, Amarcord, Prova d'orchestra only to name a few of his films with Fellini, but also: Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti, The Godfather - which earned him an oscar - by Francis Ford Coppola, as well as many others) on the other hand we are beginning to rediscover an artist who fits perfectly (who better than he?) in the area circumscribed by those parameters which delimit "Italian excellence", a much discussed phenomenon today, if not always intentionally. Refined, gifted with the same ease for composing that Mozart had (at the age of eleven he wrote his first Oratorio), but at the same time aloof and ironic, with a melancholic and paradoxical outlook on mankind, Rota is for both musicologists and impassioned fans - as they gradually uncover some new masterpiece played in concert halls - a constant surprise. This recording presents his Concerto per violoncello with Enrico Bronzi, one of the greatest and most sensitive musicians of the new generation, playing the solo part and leading the excellent Musici di Parma also in the undisputedly neoclassic Concerto per Archi (presented here in the revised version from 1977). In the Trio con clarinetto of 1973, the magic sound of Alessandro Carbonare blends together with that of Bronzi and Miodini (who play together in the Trio di Parma).

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.
