    Music for Flute and Guitar - Ruggeri-Mesirca

    Nuova release discografica di Brilliant Classics dedicata al repertorio per flauto e chitarra.
    Il CD singolo contiene musica di George Rochberg, Terry Riley, Osvaldo Golijov, Marc Ribot, Charles Wuorinen, Mark Delpriora and Ruth Crawford Seeger.
    Daniele Ruggieri, flauto
    Alberto Mesirca, chitarra
    La tracklist:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    A brief history of 20th-century American music and a valuable, offbeat addition to the comprehensive Brilliant Classics library of guitar music. 
    Among the most extensive works here is the cycle of Cantos Desiertos (1996) composed for flute and guitar by Terry Riley. The cycle was later incorporated within The Book of Abbeyzoud, an album with a character suspended between the Biblical, the mystical and the exotic. Francesco en Paraiso is a tender memorial to the countertenor Frank Royon Le Mée (1952-1993). The cycle continues with an Indian melody, and a melancholy lament before ending with a sultry Tango Ladeado (Tango Off-Centre). 
    Hardly less substantial is Muse of Fire (1990) by George Rochberg, written in the shadow of the Gulf War: hence the sudden stops and starts, the military evocations, the funeral marches, the moments of dream-like lyricism and the rhapsodic soliloquies. Ora pro nobis (1991) is based on the slow movement of Bach’s Italian Concerto: a plea for release at a deeply troubled time. 
    Bateau is a song from the 2003 album Ceramic Dog by Marco Ribot, who works mostly with jazz and post-rock musicians: this is the work’s first performance on classical guitar, and Alberto Mesirca brings out the delicate textures that evoke light shimmering on water. Of similar aquatic origins, Fish Tale is a ‘watercolour for flute and guitar’ by Osvaldo Golijov: ‘I wanted everything to be beautiful,’ said the composer, ‘even at the expense of some sense.’ 
    This unique compilation concludes with shorter solo pieces alternating between flute and guitar, taking in the satisfyingly intricate textures of Crawford Seeger and Wuorinen at each end of American modernism, as well as a touching elegy by Mark Delpriora in memory of a student of his, Basil Keiser.  This is the third solo album on Brilliant Classics by the guitarist Alberto Mesirca after his collections of music by Regondi (BC94841) and Sanz (BC95396). 
    This fascinating program presents original works for flute and guitar written in 20th century America, as diverse and complex as the country itself, making the distinction between “classical”, “popular” and “folk” meaningless.  Featured are works by George Rochberg, Terry Riley (the minimal music pioneer), Marc Ribot, Osvaldo Golijov, Charles Wuorinen, Ruth Crawford Seeger and Mark Delpriora: a kaleidoscope of highly original, provoking and diverting music! 
    Played with passion, understanding and consummate skill by flutist Daniele Ruggieri and guitarist Alberto Mesirca.  Excellent and extensive liner notes by Giovanni Cestino.

    Hika and the Young Composer, Frédéric Zigante

    Brilliant Classics avvia la distribuzione del nuovo CD dedicato alla musica di Leo Brouwer (1939) nell'interpretazione di Frédéric Zigante.
    La tracklist:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    This recording presents some of the most significant early pieces by the Cuban composer Leo Brouwer (b.1939); it also includes other works, such as Hika 
    from 1994 and the third and fourth series of his Estudios sencillos (1981), which 
    show clear similarities with the composer's early style. First to be composed of 
    the works here is a Danza caracteristica from 1956. A popular song melody 
    forms the basis for an Afro-Cuban flavoured fantasy. The Fugue No.1 dates from the following year, when Brouwer was still a teenager: having outlined a theme of Baroque proportions he takes a fairly free attitude to its contrapuntal elaboration, anticipating the concise play of fantasy in the Tres Apuntes of 1959. 
    Having soon after moved to the US, Brouwer composed the first two books of the Estudios sencillos out of financial necessity, but they have proved among his most enduring and successful works, drawing energy not only from his Cuban heritage but the didactic economy of the Mikrokosmos by Bartók. Almost all of the third and fourth books from the series date from 1981; although Brouwer had both moved back to Cuba by then as well as moved on in his own style towards a more neo-romantic language, he rediscovered the lively economy of thought which runs through the earlier studies, combining it with both neoclassical harmonies and even chance procedures to produce among the most significant collections of guitar studies from the second half of the last century. 
    ‘These short pieces reflect all of Brouwer’s creative genius,’ says Frédéric Zigante, ‘and I have always been fond of them, first as a young student of guitar and later as a guitar teacher. To me, they are an ideal method for weaning young guitarists from the didactic repertory of the 19th century.’ The French-born guitarist bases his career in northern Italy, but he has performed and recorded worldwide, as well as editing more than 40 volumes of guitar music for publishers such as Ricordi and Max Eschig. 
    Leo Brouwer (1939) is by far Cuba’s best known composer. A composer, guitarist, percussionist, conductor, teacher and cultural promotor he is one of the most important and influential musical figures of Latin-America. 
    Brouwer’s grandfather was a Franco-Dutch adventurer, while his mother’s uncle was the famous composer Ernesto Lecuona. Brouwer studied at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York with Persichetti and Stefan Wolpe. In 1961 he returned to his native Cuba, to become a professional guitarist and composer. His works have entered the standard repertoire of the modern guitarist, played and enjoyed all over the world. 
    This new recording includes the Hika, a piece written in memoriam Toru Takemitsu, a close friend of his. The other works are from Brouwer’s “early period”: the complete “20 Estudios Sencillos” (a Latin-American answer to Bartók’s Mikrokosmos), a Danza Caracteristca, Elogio de la Danza, and Tres Apuntes, all written in Brouwer’s unique fusion of Folk Music and 20th century Avant-Garde. 
    Excellent performance by master guitarist Frédéric Zigante, who recorded for Brilliant Classics the complete guitar music by Villa-Lobos.

    Gangi Music for Guitar

    Brilliant Classics pubblica il CD "Gangi Music for Guitar" dedicato alla musica per chitarra sola di Mario Gangi interpretata dal chitarrista italiano Alessandro Minci.
    La tracklist include:
    Jennifer • Blues • Fiaba • Preludio a Eva • Con Tanta Tenerezza • Sonatina in Stile Antico • Berceuse per Sara Ricordo • Incantevole • Ninna Nanna a Pabù • Canzone Breve • Sara • Raccontino • Gavottina • Marianne • Piccola Ballata • Melodietta • La Pianola • Crepuscolo • Panoramica

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    Mario Gangi (1923-2010) was among the pre-eminent Italian guitarists of his generation. Born in Rome to a professional jazz-musician father, Gangi graduated from the city’s Accademia della Santa Cecilia and soon followed in his father’s footsteps as both an orchestral bassist (with the local radio orchestra) and a guitarist. This latter career took off in the 50s: Gangi gave several important first performances of concertos by the likes of Petrassi and even Giuliani. A distinguished discography bears testament to a supremely fluent technician whose gifts as a shaper of melody are reflected in these brief songs for guitar on this album. 

    According to the guitarist Alessandro Minci, these songs explore the most intimate and sensitive side of Gangi’s output for the guitar, combining jazz, classical and popular idioms in an entirely personal voice and one which speaks with the eclectic, cosmopolitan spirit of his age. The album thus makes an essential complement to the Brilliant Classics issue of the 22 Studies (BC95204) drawn from the third volume of Gangi’s influential guitar method. Several of them evoke natural landscapes; others cast wistful glances back at childhood, at the Baroque heritage of his instrument, and at past loves and passions.

    Sanz Complete Music for Guitar, Alberto Mesirca

    L'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics pubblica il nuovo CD del chitarrista italiano @Alberto Mesirca dedicato alla musica per chitarra sola di Gaspar Sanz (1640 - 1710).
    La tracklist include i seguenti lavori:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    Composer, theorist and guitarist Gaspar Sanz was born in Calanda in Aragón in 1640, and in 1674, in Zaragoza, he published the first edition of his Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española (Musical Instruction for the Spanish Guitar), containing numerous compositions. Sanz’s music reveals him to have been a key figure in bridging two different musical traditions – the Spanish and the Italian. We know from his own testimony that music from outside Spain was being performed in Zaragoza in his lifetime, and the cultural influence of Austria, with its leanings for the Italian style, would also have been felt in the city at that time. 
    His book, at once a collection of music and a method, was addressed to both aficionados and beginners, as well as professional musicians. It contains practical and innovative advice on harmony, counterpoint and continuo practice for accompanying soloists and dancers, his vast musical knowledge and creativity demonstrated in numerous original compositions and national and foreign songs. While the origins of the latter lie in the folk tradition, by the time Sanz published the Instrucción de música, these had already long been part of the art music from which Sanz drew his inspiration. Having travelled the continent extensively, much of his musical education took place in Italy, and he would have encountered these songs and dances there in instrumental versions. 
    Italian classical guitarist Alberto Mesirca was hailed as ‘prodigiously talented’ in Classical Guitar Magazine, and Kenneth Keaton of American Record Guide praised his album Scarlatti Sonatas as ‘the best Scarlatti I’ve heard on solo guitar’. He is a two-time winner of the “Golden Guitar” Award: for Best Recording in 2007 and as Best Upcoming Artist of the Year in 2009. 
    With this two-CD set, he has recorded all of Sanz’s punteado (plucked) music for guitar, together with the corresponding rasgueado (strummed) parts or dances. He includes his own arrangements of the dances ‘La tarantela’ and ‘Baile de Mantua’, which Sanz published in strummed versions only. 
    Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) was born in Calanda, Aragón in Spain. As a young student he went to Italy to learn his craft and art, and studied with the masters in Rome and Naples. His most important publication was published in 1674: “Instrucción de música sobre la guitarra española” (Musical instruction for the Spanish Guitar). 
    This publication contains theoretical information, instructions on technical aspects of the instrument and its way of playing, and a great number of compositions. The publication had far reaching influence on generations of guitar players to come. This new recording presents the compositions from the manuscript, a wide variety of fugues and mainly dances: the Passacalle, Coriente, Zarabanda, Jiga and other popular dances, with roots in the rich folk music of both Spain and Italy. 
    Master guitarist Alberto Mesirca is twice winner of the Golden Guitar, for the best recording of the Year. He recorded the complete guitar music by Regondi and “Voces de Sefarad” , four centuries of Sephardic Songs. 

    A Spanish Portrait, Luigi Attademo

    La major discografica olandese Brilliant Classics pubblica il nuovo CD del chitarrista italiano @Luigi Attademo.
    Il CD si intitola A Spanish Protrait e contiene le seguenti composizioni:

    Dal sito dell'editore:
    A musical portrait of a master guitar-maker of the 19th century. 
    Great instruments have always been associated with great musicians, and this is true in the guitar world too, at least from the early 19th century onwards. Early in his career, Antonio de Torres (1817-1892), like other luthiers before him, found a performer ideally suited to his instruments – the young Andalusian guitarist Julián Arcas. The technical innovations in construction and timbre pioneered by Torres enabled Arcas to give full expression to his artistry in works such as the florid Fantasía sobre El paño o sea Punto de La Habana with which Luigi Attademo opens this new studio album. 
    Of the generation after Arca, Francisco Tárrega quickly proved himself even more gifted in both performancecomposition. So much so that Torres offered him a guitar he had made five years earlier and kept for his own use. This was the FE 17, which Tárrega continued to play for the next 20 years, and which came to define the sound of ‘the Spanish guitar’ to generations of listeners. 
    A groundbreaking instrument in terms of its tonal range and sound potential, the FE 17 became critical to both Tárrega’s success and to the expansion of guitar repertoire during the 19th century: although he continued to compose using the traditional forms of the fantasia and theme and variations, Tárrega also focused on shorter forms borrowed directly from Romantic piano repertoire. With eight original works by Tárrega, Attademo demonstrates the full tonal-dynamic palette of Torres’s instruments. Further selections of popular repertoire by Llobet, alongside his transcriptions of Granados and Albeniz, take the guitar’s evolution through a more advanced stage, exploring different registers, radical harmonies and tone-colours. 
    This bold new concept album should attract the attention of all lovers of Spanish guitar. Luigi Attademo has recorded it using an original Torres SE 122 guitar which has been strung with gut rather than steel to further enhance the potential for experiencing this music in the thrill of its original creation. 
    This recording features an historic guitar, an instrument built in 1888 by the great, legendary guitar maker Antonio de Torres. Many composers were inspired by his magnificent instruments, and he was inspired by the composers who spurred him to extend the technical possibilities of the instrument. 
    The composers included in this appealing program are all Spanish: Julian Arcas, Antonio Cano, Francisco Tarrega, Enrique Granados, Antonio Jimemez Manjon, Isaac Albeniz, and Miguel Llobet. 
    The Torres guitar needs a master to be played on: Luigi Attademo is one of today’s foremost guitarists, with an extensive discography to his name: for Brilliant Classics he recorded works by Paganini, Scarlatti, Bach and a CD devoted to historical guitars.
