QUINTET IN D MAJOR G.448

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.

QUINTETTO PER ARCHI 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".

O CARDILLO

The songs on this record cover an entire century of Neapolitan melodies and two important historical periods in its evolution. The first, in the nineteenth century, saw the coming together of the folk tradition and the tipically melodramatic style of singing. This is the period in which composers such as Mercadante, Donizetti and Rossini all make use of Neapolitan style and forms. Another section of the Cd is dedicated to the repertoire drawn from the period between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. This was a golden age in the production of Neapolitan music. These are the years of Salvatore Di Giacomo and Francesco Paolo Tosti, two great scholars and interpreters of Neapolitan culture.

CONCERTO IN SI MIN.PER VIOLINO,ARCHI E CONTINUO D.125-LARGHETTO(

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.

SONATA PER ARPA

This is both the first CD issued by Musikstrasse and the first recording experience of the Polimnia Ensemble, a group of Italian artists including conservatory teachers and leading musicians from Italy's main orchestras. This collection contains Rossini chamber works, ranging from brief, simple compositions, both vocal and instrumental, to brilliant, virtuoso excerpts, characterized by the rich timbre of the orchestra ensemble. Among the pieces played here are few famous ones - i.e. Une Larme for cello and piano - along with rarities such as Toast pour le nouvel an, for four voices.

DECIMINO IN MI BEMOLLE MAGGIORE-ANDANTE AFFETTUOSO

Even if Mercadante is mostly known as operas composer, the music of this collections witness not only the peculiar creative potential of the author but also his natural attitude to the instrumental genre. Infact we can place the "Variazioni in fa maggiore" (Variations in Fmajor) and the "Quartetto in mi bemolle maggiore" (quartet in E durmajor) in the composer's youth, whereas the two "Decimini" are part of his late production. As to the latter - along with their uniqueness asa form in instrumental music - the "Decimino con pianoforte" (the cd'sopening track) is a real rare issue. This cd is part of a Polimnia Ensemble trilogy dedicated to chamber music of great opera composers, along with compositions by Rossini and Donizetti already released with Musikstrasse.

SETTE VARIAZIONI SU VIEN QUA DORINA BELLA OP.7

The piano works included in this CD show Carl Maria von Weber's talent as a virtuoso and communicative musician. Although this author has long remained unknown to the general public and was often excluded from the repertoire of the most famous pianists, its production is interesting because it contains the seeds of a number of important elements which the great Romantics are certainly indebted to. Carl Maria von Weber's works are performed by the Sicilian pianist Stefania Cafaro.
