ECLOGHE PER FLAUTO CORNO INGLESE E CHITARRA

Boccherini's correspondance qith his publisher, Pleyel in Paris, bears witness to the fact that the Six Piano Quintet op. 56, like the similar series op.57, belong to his period of intense creativity in Madrid. The fact that the score was sent to Paris, also shows that the composer was intent on establishing his reputation there, given that the piano was very much in vogue in the city at the time. We also know, however, that the same Quintest had already been performed in Madrid, in the palace of the Mrquis Benavente, in the version for strings and guitar. This version was something of a private affair and was undoubtedly due to the Marquis' predilection perhaps even his gift for the guitarl. The piano version has the merit of giving us an insights into works which would otherwise have been lost forever. The performance does not trumpet the differences, but rather, as Boccherini hoped, exalts the evrchanging nature of light and shade and of stasis and motion.

LA BISBETICA DOMATA-PRELUDIO

This Cd is a musical journey that takes the listener across several cultural enviroments and contexts including the theatre , the café-chantant, floklore and the cinema. It draws on the musical heritage of Germany, France, Latin America and Italy and it aims to bring to the fore the character and spirit of each individual area. The journey starts from some famous songs written by the derisive Kurt Weil and continues with three French authors who were also connected for a certain period by a human and artistic bond: Eric Satie, George Auric, Francis Poulenc. Then we have an incursion in Latin-American with composer Manuel Maria Ponce and Heitor Villa Lobos. The programme closes with a fantasy based on film music by Nino Rota. Trio Chitarristico di Roma, made up of Fabio Renato D'Ettorre, Marco Cianchi and Fernando Lepri. It was founded in 1983 with the aim of introducing the repertoire that exists for this unusual formation to the ublic and at the same time to present guitar versions of pieces written for other insgruments. The Trio has performed all over Europe, sharing the stage with many internationally acknowledged artists. With Musikstrasse, they also published "Recital" and "Rara" musica del 900.

II QUINTETTO(G.408)

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.

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.

INTRODUCTION AND FANDANGO

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.

CONCERTO IN MI MIN. PER VIOLINO, ARCHI E CONTINUO-ALLEGRO

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.
