BARCAROLLES N. 4 IN A FLAT OP.44

In the panorama of the late nineteenth century piano music, Gabriel Fauré's work is particularly rich in distinctive detail and innovation. Just as Proust tempted his readers to the pleasure of literature with digressions and deliberately "irritating" descriptions, Fauré's compositions for pianoforte are a quest for harmonic and tonal suggestionwithin a structure that never disturbs the pleasure of listening or performance. Unfortunately his scores are not often played in the concert hall, perhaps because of the commitment and attitude they demand of both the performer and the listener. The Barcarolles, like Fauré's Nocturnes, seem to have run parallel to the life of the composer and in these genres it is easy to find two moods and two manners of expression blended together. Massimiliano Damerini. Graduated in piano studies and composition under Alfredo They and Martha Del Vecchio in his hometown of Genova. Regarded as one of the most representative musicians of his generation, he has played in many of the major international theatres and concert Halls.

This cd collects violin concerts by Giuseppe Tartini, really important figure within the Italian instrumental schools in the second half of the eighteenth century.

MARECHIARE

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.

IV QUINTETTO(G.410)

Six Piano Quintet op. 56 belong to the period of Boccherini's intense creativity. Each piece was conceived to stand apart from the others , in terms of overall sound, rhythmic progression and harmonic arrangement, but also because the construction of their internal form is based on something unforseeable, on an elemnt of surprise or on a wilful teasing the imagination. The work are performed by Piero Barbareschi (piano) and by Elisa Quartet.
