ECLOGHE PER FLAUTO CORNO INGLESE 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".

VARIAZIONI SU UN'ARIA RUSSA SCHONE MINKA OP.40

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.

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.

QUINTETTO PER ARCHI 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.
