  3. Bogdanović: Guitar Music

    Il CD del chitarrista italiano @Angelo Marchese interamente dedicato alla musica del compositore serbo Dušan Bogdanović (1955). La tracklist del CD è così articolata: Sonatas Nos 1 & 2 Raguette No. 2 Cinque Pezzi di Mare Introduction, Passacaglia and Fugue for the “Golden Flower” Quatre Bagetelles Polyrhythmic and Polymetric Studies Dal sito dell'editore: With sonatas, bagatelles, studies and dances, this disc forms a comprehensive introduction to the classically oriented section of the diverse oeuvre of the guitarist/composer Dusan Bogdanovic. Serbian by origin, long based in the US, Bogdanovic (b.1955) has made artistic collaborations with jazz, classical and ‘world’ musicians throughout his career. His distinguished pedagogical work has resulted in the publication of various method-books for guitarists and is represented here by five of his Polyrhythmic and Polymetric Studies (1990). The two sonatas are more substantially through-composed works. As Bogdanovi himself remarks in a useful booklet note, the first sonata (1978) betrays the influence of Bartok upon his early compositions, while the second, written seven years later, admits a much wider frame of reference, disciplined by the classical sonata model. The resulting work has nothing of the generically Spanish flavour that is evident in so much guitar music, but takes its cue from the composer’s own mastery of the instrument to move between whimsical reflection and punchy, rhythmic momentum with some technical innovations that produce new sounds and tone-colours. The second Raguette pursues these innovations more single-mindedly: a brief introduction to the Indian raga tradition ‘meant for nervous Westerners’, melodically based on a work of John Dowland. There is also a first recording, of a work commissioned by Angelo Marchese, and inspired by the soloist’s native Sicily. In Cinque pezzi di Mare (2013), a romantic spirit of expression grows from material based on modes rather than standard diatonic harmony, enclosing a waltz which consciously evokes the idiom of the jazz pianist Bill Evans. This is an important addition to the extensive Brilliant Classics library of guitar music. Dusan Bogdanovic, born in 1955 in former Yugoslavia, is one of the foremost guitar composers and guitarists of today. A pupil of Alberto Ginastera and winner of the prestigious Geneva Competition he successfully toured the world’s continents as performer and composer. Bogdanovic’s style may be described as a fusion of classical, jazz and ethnic, a unique and personal style of strong expression and feelings. Guitarist Angelo Marchese is “an profound performer of supreme technical mastery” (Guitart magazine). His recording of Gilardino’s guitar concerto for Brilliant Classics (BC94747) was widely praised in the press. The booklet contains extensive and authoritative liner notes written by the composer.

  5. Regondi Complete Solo Guitar Music, Alberto Mesirca

    L'etichetta discografica olandese Brilliant Classics pubblica il CD Set "Regondi Complete Solo Guitar Music" del chitarrista italiano @Alberto Mesirca. Il cofanetto raccoglie l'integrale delle composizioni per chitarra del compositore italiano Giulio Regondi (1822 - 1872). Nel dettaglio, la tracklist include i seguenti lavori per chitarra sola: CD 1: Feuille d’album. Ad libitum (first recording) Rêverie - Nocturne, Op. 19 (Larghetto – Più mosso) Fête villageoise, Op. 20 (Rondo caprice. Allegretto giusto) Premier Air varié, Op. 21 Deuxième air varié, Op. 22 Introduction et caprice, Op. 23 (Adagio – Allegretto scherzando) CD 2: Air varié de l’opéra de Bellini "I Capuleti e i Montecchi" Solo on Don Giovanni 10 Etudes Tecnico del suono: Andrea De Marchi La recensione della release discografica a cura di Gianluigi Giglio per l'e-magazine dotGuitar: Di Giulio Regondi serbiamo un’immagine serafica: seduto su una seggiola, con i suoi boccoli biondiriversi sulle sue docili spalle, mentre imbraccia una chitarra. Questa è l’icona più emblematica che abbiamo del Regondi bambino, che alla chitarra fu legato nel bene e nel male. Nato a Ginevra nel 1822, poco si conosce della madre; alcuni aneddoti, ci aiutano meglio a conoscere la sua fragile figura, segnata dai soprusi di un padre aguzzino, che sfruttò le sue doti di enfant prodige per trarne bieco profitto, abbandonandolo, dopo averlo lasciato senza un soldo, in quella Londra ottocentesca dei bassifondi, permeata ancora da quell’atmosfera del romanzo Dickensiano “Oliver Twist”, che il regista Roman Polański è riuscito a ricreare efficacemente, nel suo film omonimo. Quando il padre usciva di casa, chiudeva a chiave il figlio per costringerlo a studiare cinque ore al giorno. Il bimbo se ne restava solo, per tutto il tempo, controllato di sottecchi da un vicino di casa; “a seconda di quanto veniva riportato, doveva starsene a fianco del letto del padre per recuperare tutto il tempo che avesse perso durante il giorno” .1 Era stato il dottor George Young, noto medico londinese - in un suo breve soggiorno a Lione, ospite del padre che gli impartiva lezioni di italiano - a consigliargli di portare il fanciullo a Londra, avendolo sentito suonare la chitarra. Così lo descrive: “dotato di una notevole intelligenza, d’aspetto fine e delicato, con mani forti e più sviluppate rispetto al resto. Giulio non ricordava di essere uscito di casa neanche quando era venuto un uomo a prendergli le misure per un abito di velluto con ornamenti dorati e un cappello, anch’esso di velluto, con piume bianche. Al concerto, non appena ebbe finito di suonare, il pubblico si alzò in piedi applaudendo e chiedendo un bis, al che Giulio allarmato fuggì di corsa dal palcoscenico. Ci volle parecchio tempo per riprenderlo e farlo suonare ancora”.2 Se Regondi fosse nato nel ‘900, sarebbe sicuramente ricorso allo psicanalista, per le coercizioni e angherie subite. Invece decise – da un certo momento in poi – di dedicarsi alla concertina, strumento simile al bandoneon, per il quale compose un gran numero di opere, abbandonando la chitarra che, a livello inconscio, era legata ai patimenti e ai tormenti di un’infanzia tradita. Tuttavia, nei concerti che Regondi diede a Parigi, Londra, Liverpool, Darmstadt, Dresda, Lipsia, Vienna, Praga, per le abilità tecniche di cui era dotato, riuscì a sbalordire come pochi altri avevano fatto sino ad allora, ottenendo sempre entusiasmanti recensioni della critica. Le sue composizioni sono di non facile esecuzione, con funambolici passaggi, arpeggi veloci, tremoli e complessità tecniche inaudite per quell’epoca, se si eccettua il virtuosismo di Legnani, Giuliani e Sor. Quest’ultimo conobbe Regondi bambino, e ne apprezzò il talento tanto da dedicargli la Fantasia op. 46 (anche Carcassi gli dedicò le Variations brilliantes sur un thême de la Cenerentola “Non più mesta”- Rossini). Il successo non era più tanto scontato come all’epoca dei grandi chitarristi compositori del primo ottocento. Bisognava fare i conti con il predominio del pianoforte, con tutte le sue potenzialità espressive, che compositori del calibro di Liszt, Schumann, Thalberg, Moscheles e Chopin seppero sfruttare, elevandolo a strumento romantico per antonomasia. I chitarristi dell’epoca inseguirono invano quel modello, poiché la forza espressiva della chitarra non risiedeva nella potenza sonora, ma in quella caleidoscopica amalgama di colori, sfumature ed effetti timbrici che contraddistinguono il suo carattere più intimistico. La chitarra, grazie a Regondi, riesce ad entrare nel panorama di quel romanticismo inquieto che sublima il pittoresco attraverso un nuovo sentimento di intimità spirituale, per cui la musica diviene fonte di gioia interiore. La spontanea effusione melodica di Regondi, che trascende ogni aspetto drammatico, serve a infondere serenità: al suo culmine la melodia è evocazione poetica. Nella Rêverie Nocturne op.19, una sensazione di rasserenante estasi – che ha come momento parossistico la fluida cantabilità del tremolo – ci astrae completamente dal mondo terreno: si è come sospesi in un impalpabile ed etereo spazio siderale. Che ritroviamo anche nella brevità di Feuille d’Album, brano portato alla luce da Andreas Stevens nel 2010, trovato presso una collezione privata a Monaco, e qui inciso per la prima volta. Una breve introduzione nel tono di re minore col basso che si muove, carico di tensione, su un intervallo di seconda minore; si espande poi in una sezione di ampi e arditi arpeggi, come fosse un ponte modulante che risolve in una suadente melodia nella tonalità di mi maggiore. Forse meno ispirato, per la ridondanza di ornamentazioni, Fête Villageoise sembra una scampagnata (ma non proprio per quanto riguarda l’esecuzione) all’insegna del divertimento, motto di quella serenità che qui trapela palesemente, senza alcun pudore, e che null’altro sembra volerci suggerire. Le ornamentazioni, i glissati, estese sequenze di arpeggi, successioni rapide di scale, sono peculiari di tutta la musica di Regondi, retaggio del virtuosismo dei chitarristi compositori di qualche decennio prima. Li ritroviamo pure nell’Air Varié op. 21 e op. 22 dove una mesta introduzione in tonalità minore contrasta con il tema sereno in tono maggiore (quello dell’op. 21 calca un motivo popolare napoletano); le variazioni sono ricche di cromatismi, complesse armonie, e melodie che rimandano, stavolta, all’ormai sorpassato clima salottiero ottocentesco. Più interessante Introduction et Caprice op. 23, ultimo pezzo scritto da Regondi per la chitarra, definito da Gilardino “il miglior brano scritto per chitarra nell’epoca romantica”,3 caratterizzato da un magistrale uso della tessitura armonica nell’introduzione in mi maggiore, da cui si apre poi lo sviluppo vero e proprio (il capriccio in mi minore) nel quale, per chiudere con maestria l’elaborazione motivica di gradevole impronta romantica, egli utilizza l’ampio vocabolario degli elementi idiomatici della chitarra. I Capuleti e i Montecchi - ispirato, forse, al lavoro di Mertz - prende spunto dall’opera di Bellini con le variazioni secondo i canoni consueti. Il risultato è un capolavoro che mette in mostra un copioso ventaglio dei tecnicismi stilistici dell’epoca, ma anche un sapiente uso dell’accompagnamento della melodia, che ci fa apprezzare appieno le qualità polifoniche della chitarra. Esperimento simile è il Solo on Don Giovanni, fedele riproposizione, nota per nota, della medesima trascrizione ad opera di Thalberg, il famoso pianista compositore rivale di Liszt, che Regondi aveva incontrato a Londra nel 1837 e nel 1839, in occasione della loro partecipazione agli stessi concerti.4 Infine i magnifici 10 Etudes da cui si dispiegano accattivanti melodie, sorrette da armonie che aderiscono perfettamente alla fluida cantabilità. Talvolta, come nel difficile studio n. 5, da un semplice disegno melodico, trapela – attraverso articolate progressioni e modulazioni – un’eccellente abilità compositiva. E vale, per tutti, l’efficace intensità degli studi n. 6 e n. 9 per annoverare questi esercizi dell’espressività - miniature di grande valore musicale - tra le più belle composizioni del periodo romantico. Il 6 maggio 1872 Regondi moriva a Londra per un cancro epiteliale, dopo atroci sofferenze durate 20 mesi. Nella sua vita vennero pubblicate solo cinque opere; dopo la sua morte cadde nel dimenticatoio, e fu riscoperto solo di recente: i 10 studi furono scoperti in Russia da Matanya Ophee nel 1987. Alcune sue opere furono incise per la prima volta a partire dal 1981 da Leif Christensen con una chitarra René Lacôte del 1830, e in seguito da David Starobin nel 1993.5 Uno dei più eminenti studiosi di Regondi è Simon Wynberg,6 le cui note sono riportate (in lingua inglese) nel libretto che accompagna questi due CD del valente chitarrista Alberto Mesirca, per l’etichetta Brilliant Classics. Qualche piccola rigidità del fraseggio e rubati, a volte, leggermente affrettati, non inficiano la pregevole interpretazione del talentuoso e giovane chitarrista che, col suo ricercato tocco romantico, nitido e delicato, fa materializzare, nel gorgo dell’immaginazione, quella soave figura “con quei suoi occhi blu pieni di dolcezza e vivacità, dai lunghi capelli biondi e fluenti sulle spalle”,7 concedendoci di godere pienamente di una delle pagine più significative del periodo romantico.______________ 1.

  6. The Russian Guitar

    Il cofanetto distribuito dall'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics integralmente dedicato alla musica russa per chitarra scritta tra il 1800 e il 1850. Ideatore il chitarrista e musicologo americano di origini russe Oleg Timofeyev. La tracklist include musica per chitarra sola e per chitarra in ensemble. Dal sito dell'editore: This comprehensive release is a celebration of the astonishing presence of the guitar in Russia at the beginning of the 19th century. Just the sheer number of composers featured on this 7CD album exemplifies how popular the instrument was. Though many of these composers have now fallen into obscurity, their works live on – discovered by renowned guitarist Oleg Timofeyev, an expert on the music of this time. Mr Timofeyev is known for reviving the seven-string Russian guitar, and it is on this instrument that he performs these works, many of which have never been recorded before. The release starts with one of the masters of the instrument, Andrey Sychra, whose numerous pupils form many of the composers on this album. Sychra was an accomplished harpist, and several of his works seem to imitate the delicacy of the harp. His fine Études are among the first for Russian guitar, and this style would be elaborated on by many of Sychra’s followers, whether they were meant for study or the concert hall. Sychra was also adept at programmatic music, with his compositions after poems able to depict atmospheric scenes, particularly apparent in his works based on Russian folk songs. Other composers, such as Mikhail Vysotsky, preferred to extemporise on themes by well-known composers; Vysotsky chose Cramer’s Études as a basis for his free-flowing Fantasia, and even arranged the third contrapunctus from J.S. Bach’s Art of Fugue in a remarkably original and novel transcription. The final CD of this album sees the Russian guitar paired with other instruments – unusual, as Russian guitarists, often in the military or part of land-owning nobility, rarely had an opportunity to play alongside other musicians. We have Piotr Naimanowsky’s Variations for guitar and fortepiano, a sympathetic working of the popular French air Que le jour me dure, and a Sonata for violin and guitar by Antoine de L’Hoyer, a Frenchman who spent 10 years in Russia and frequently wrote for the Russian guitar. This innovative release represents an exciting chance to discover the severely neglected world of the Russian guitar during this period. As Oleg Timofeyev and his companions show, there is a wealth of music worthy of attention here, in a variety of genres and styles. The seven-string guitar appeared in Russia in the 1790s and experienced its Golden Age during the first half of the 19th century. This Box Set is a monument to this remarkable era. The 7 CD’s of this set follow chronologically the development of the guitar in Russia: from the very first works by the “Patriarch of the Russian guitar” Andrey Sichra, through the Muscovite School of Aksionov, Vysotsky and Vetrov, the St. Petersburg School with works by Morkov and others, to the Romantics Alexandrov, Zimmerman and Sarenko. Also included are songs accompanied by the guitar and chamber music in which the guitar has a prominent part. A unique project, played by master guitarist Oleg Timofeyev as soloist, seconded by second guitarist John Schneiderman. Timofeyev wrote the extensive and scholarly liner notes himself. With artist biographies and extensive liner notes written by the artist.
  7. Manuel Ponce: Complete Music for Guitar, Gérard Abiton

    Brilliant Classics pubblica un box-set dedicato alla musica del compositore messicano Manuel Maria Ponce (1882-1948) interpretata dal chitarrista francese Gérard Abiton. Nonostante il titolo riporti il complete, il repertorio di Ponce qui presentato è parziale. Si tratta a mio parere di una grave svista dell'interprete su un'opera integrale di così grande importanza. Nonostante ciò trovo ottima la registrazione ed egregio il lavoro svolto sulle pagine della musica di Ponce. La critica di Marco Riboni su Amadeus: Manuel Maria Ponce (1882-1948), assieme a Carlos Chavez (che di Ponce fu allievo) rappresenta la punta più alta della musica colta messicana del Novecento. La sua produzione per chitarra, legata alla fortissima influenza di Andrés Segovia che di lui fu promotore e mentore, è di formidabile importanza. Nel Novecento storico degli anni Venti e Trenta, assieme a Villa-Lobos e Castelnuovo-Tedesco, la sua musica per chitarra costruì pilastri fondamentali per il repertorio delle sei corde, pilastri sui quali i giovani e validi interpreti dovrebbero appoggiarsi anziché barcamenarsi con ammennicoli di uso e consumo commerciale. Ponce è un grande, la sua musica è bellissima. Tanto bravo quando ingenuo: la sua Estrellita, una affascinante canzone diventata celeberrima e cantata nel Ventesimo secolo dai più rinomati interpreti, non gli fruttò neanche un centesimo a causa della sua sprovvedutezza: cedette infatti inconsapevolmente tutti i diritti d'autore all'editore, il quale si guardò bene dall'informarlo su quanto stesse facendo. La lettura di Gérard Abiton di questa imponente messe di opere, fra le quali lo splendido Concierto del Sur per chitarra e orchestra (che da solo meriterebbe un ampio articolo di analisi), è eccellente. Onore al merito nella realizzazione di un progetto discografico così importante e impegnativo, soprattutto di questi tempi nei quali la chitarra sembra diventata lo sfogo esibizionistico di virtuosismi fini a se stessi." (Marco Riboni, Amadeus numero 303 febbraio 2015) Il link sulla pagina dell'editore: http://www.brilliantclassics.com/articles/p/ponce-complete-guitar-music/ La presentazione del disco in lingua inglese: The magic and mystery of Mexico make a welcome return on this recording, as the expert skills of Gérard Abiton explore Manuel Ponce’s complete works for guitar. There is a wealth of treasures to be enjoyed here, as Ponce’s vast career led him to explore a number of different styles. His time in Paris exerted a French influence on his music, heard in the wonderfully lyrical song-without-words motif in the second movement of his Sonata III. The folklike passage that follows it, alongside a daring counter-melody, are brought together in a joyous conclusion in the Sonata’s last movement, cleverly evoking a popular theme. But it is in the Tres Canciones populares mexicanas that the listener is musically transported to Central America, and Ponce’s beloved homeland. The composer’s tender nature is beautifully expressed in these three lyrical works, as, along with the Scherzino mexicano, he strives to create a testament to his Mexican roots. Gérard Abiton, an ‘exceptional and talented’ French guitarist (Guitare Classique), is a magnificent performer of Ponce’s works. His elegant rendition succeeds in convincingly expressing the composer’s tender emotion, paying homage to Ponce’s diverse influences and never straying far from his cherished Mexican origins. Described as ‘one of the best guitarists in the world’ (Liberation) and a ‘leading light in the profession’ (Le pays), Abiton’s understanding of Ponce has led him to be regularly invited to play his works in Mexico. Joined by harpsichordist Beatrice Martin, whose assured touch is the perfect accompaniment to the Concierto del Sur and Sonata for guitar and harpsichord, as well as Jean Thorel’s professional conducting, this CD is sure to delight fans of guitar music looking to relax and unwind.
  8. The Andrés Segovia Archive: Complete Guitar Music, Ermanno Brignolo

    Il Box Set "The Andrés Segovia Archive: Complete Guitar Music" distribuito dall'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics contiene la registrazione a cura del chitarrista italiano @Ermanno Brignolo dell'intera omonima collana pubblicata dalle Edizioni Bérben di Ancona. Il contenuto è il seguente: La tracklist dettagliata può essere visionata da questo link. Dal sito dell'editore: Andrés Segovia, born in 1893 in Linares, Spain, was one of the most important musicians of the 20th century; a virtuoso guitarist whose contribution to modern-Romantic repertoire included both commissions and transcriptions of baroque/classical works. Until recently, a significant portion of his music library remained either unknown or consigned to the depths of history: only in 2001, when the Italian composer, guitarist and scholar Angelo Gilardino was given permission to open the crates containing the maestro’s personal collection of music, did the true extent of his vast repertoire come to light. The collection The Andrés Segovia Archive was thus created with the aim of making available to all the works written for Segovia which remained unpublished (and in some cases never performed) during his lifetime, and here it is played by esteemed Italian guitarist Ermanno Brignolo – himself the dedicatee of numerous works by composers such as Ronca and Porqueddu. From Fenerod Peyrot’s Thème et variations to Arregui’s Piezas líricas, the compilation touches on a number of countries, revealing Segovia’s immense international stature at that time. Brignolo presents an engaging tribute to a precious heritage, one whose range of styles has only served to further enrich 20th-century guitar music. Qui la traccia Passacaille di Alexandre Tansman, etratta dallo stesso Box Set:

  15. A Guitar for Segovia, Javier Somoza

    Il chitarrista spagnolo Javier Somoza pubblica con Brilliant Classics il suo nuovo CD dal titolo A Guitar for Segovia La tracklist: 1. Tres libros de musica en cifras: Pavana by Alonso de Mudarra 2. Tres libros de musica en cifras: Tiento by Alonso de Mudarra 3. Tres libros de musica en cifras: Fantasia que contrahaze la harpa en la manera de Ludovico by Alonso de Mudarra 4. Saldivar Codex no 4: Folias italianas by Santiago de Murcia 5. Saldivar Codex no 4: Folias españolas by Santiago de Murcia 6. Tiento by Maurice Ohana 7. Variazioni attraverso i secoli, Op. 71 by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco 8. Pièces brèves (4) for Guitar by Frank Martin Dal sito dell'editore: There are two themes to this recording: the time-honoured genre of the folía, and an instrument made for and played by the greatest guitarist of the 20th century, Andres Segovia. With his determination to expand the repertoire of guitar music and extend the instrument beyond its associations with his native Spain, Segovia commissioned three works played here by Javier Somoza: the Variations à travers les siècles by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Variaciones y Fuga sobre la Folía de España by Ponce and a set of Four Short Pieces by Frank Martin. Segovia eventually decided that Martin’s idiom was too dissonant for his taste and so never played them, but the pieces have since become classics of the mid-20th-century repertoire alongside works by Britten and Henze. As their titles suggest, however, the other two works have a conscious relationship with the history of the guitar and its repertoire, developed from the lute and vihuela of previous centuries. Ponce only partially fulfilled Segovia’s request for ‘a series of brilliant variations on the Folías de España theme […] in the Classical Italian style of the 18th century.’ What resulted was a monumental, thoroughly eclectic work definitely not in 18th-century style. Segovia, again, decided to adapt the piece for his own ends but Somoza has returned to the original. Meanwhile Castelnuovo-Tedesco, in his first work for the guitar, also consciously embraced eclecticism in a series of different idioms: a stylized chaconne reminiscent of early music; a free variation, a waltz, and a foxtrot. There is one more modern work on the album – the dazzling Tiento by Maurice Ohana that also looks back to 18th-century Spanish idiom – which functions as a pivot between the ages. Two examples of the folía theme-and-variation form by Santiago de Murcia date from roughly 1730; and to open, Somoza travels back in time to the tientos of 16th-century Spain with three brief works by Alonso Mudarra. ‘A Guitar for Segovia’ is both an absorbing journey through the history of guitar music and an important record of a Segovia instrument: a significant addition to the expansive library of guitar music on Brilliant Classics. The concept of this CD is inspired by two sources: the works are based on the harmonic pattern of “La Follia”, a characteristic Spanish Dance, and, secondly, the guitar that belonged to Andrés Segovia and was built in 1924 by the famous luthier Santos Hernández, and donated by the maestro to the Victor Espinos Music Library in Madrid. Segovia is known to have played the instrument extensively, on several world tours. The music on this CD spans 4 centuries, and features works by Alonso Mudarra, Santiago de Murcia, Maurice Ohana, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Manuel Ponce and Frank Martin, a kaleidoscopic repertoire fully exploring the rich possibilities of this magnificent instrument. Javier Somoza is one of the foremost guitarist of Spain. After winning several international guitar competitions he embarked on a brilliant solo career. Next to that he is Professor at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Musica in Madrid and Honorary member of the Segovia Guitar Academy.

  17. A tribute to Ida Presti, Cinzia Milani

    Brilliant Classics pubblica il nuovo CD della chitarrista italiana Cinzia Milani dedicato a Ida Presti e alla sua musica. Interpreti: Cinzia Milani Supporto: CD Audio Numero dischi: 1 Etichetta: Brilliant Classics Data di pubblicazione: 1 settembre 2017 Tracklist Dal sito dell'editore: ‘One of the greatest guitarists of all time,’ remarked John Duarte in his entry on Ida Presti for Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Best-known in posterity as one half of the celebrated Presti-Lagoya duo, she is celebrated on this album as a composer and virtuoso in her own right, half a century after her unexpected death in the middle of a US concert tour, at just 43 years of age. In her booklet-note, Cinzia Milani remarks that she has always considered Presti a role-model, not only for her prodigious talent as a guitarist, but as a female musician in a culture and industry still often dominated by male authority. She presents here six studies by Presti herself, a Danse rhythmique and an Etude du matin, and Presti’s tribute to her own hero, Segovia. Just as Presti dedicated the dance to her husband Lagoya, so Milani follows it with two works which he in turn dedicated to her. Then there are various works by composers little known outside guitar circles such as Miguel Ablóniz and indeed Duarte. Through all these works may be traced the joyous personality of Presti herself, summed up by her granddaughter Isabelle in the booklet as ‘elegant nimbleness, luminous musicality and wonderful self-confidence’. She was friends with many of the composers such as Gontran Dessagnes, who wrote his Tendesse for her in 1954. The work by Guy Morançon is a tribute to her memory, composed in the wake of her death. Finally, Milani has written her own tribute, Quattro Mi, in admiration for the extraordinary facility of Presti in holding down the note E (Mi in solfege) on four different strings simultaneously. By its nature, the album is unique in the catalogue, of immediate interest to guitarists and anyone curious about a great artist of the last century. This recording was made on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Ida Presti, one of the greatest guitarists of the 20th century, a pioneering woman who used her extraordinary talents for the popularization of her instrument and the music written for it. Italian guitarist Cinzia Milano compiled the program for this new recording, consisting of original works by Ida Presti as well as works by other composers which are dedicated to her: Alexandre Lagoya, Miguel Ablóniz, John Duarte, Dimitri Fampas, Gontran Dessagnes and Francis Poulenc. The booklet contains contributions by the artist as well as by Isabelle Presti, the granddaughter of Ida Presti.

  20. Anthology of Classical Guitar Music, AAVV

    L'etichetta discografica olandese Brilliant Classics propone al mercato un poderoso CD Set composto da 40 CD dedicati alla chitarra Classica. In allegato il PDF con le singole tracklist dei volumi. Da IBS.it: La più ampia collezione disponibile di brani per chitarra! Questo set di 40 CD abbraccia diversi secoli di musica per chitarra: dal barocco, dove la chitarra ha guadagnato la preferenza rispetto al liuto, al periodo classico, periodo in cui si è gradualmente stabilizzata come strumento da concerto. Nel suo paese d'origine, la Spagna, molti compositori del XX secolo hanno esteso la gamma delle sue possibilità sonore dedicandole anche nuove forme compositive. Le registrazioni presentano i migliori chitarristi di fama internazionale, rendendo la collezione un prezioso strumento sia per gli esperti che per gli amatori del repertorio. Dal sito dell'editore: Guitar lovers are lucky enough to have their pick of repertoire, spanning the entire globe as well as many centuries. Never before, however, have they been able to listen to their favourite pieces all in one place – from Baroque to 20th Century, from Latin America to north Germany. This ambitious and expansive set of 40 CDs brings together a wide range of works for solo guitar guaranteed to satisfy those eager to explore repertoire both known and unknown. We start our journey with Robert de Visée, born around 30 years before J.S. Bach. His Suites – which may also have been played on a lute or theorbo – are fascinating examples of some of the only existing French Baroque music for guitar. Bach himself did not write as much music for the stringed instrument as he did for keyboard; however, the transcriptions of his violin Partitas work perfectly on the guitar. Likewise, Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti have been transcribed here from the keyboard for the guitar. The Italian composer worked in Spain for the majority of his life, and the Spanish influences he picked up there make a smooth transition to the stringed instrument. The Classical and Romantic eras saw a period of development. Fernando Sor, one of the most important figures in guitar music, elevated the guitar from a 'tavern' instrument to one that commanded respect. He himself contributed a vast amount to the guitar canon – such as his Études – alongside the Italians Ferdinando Carulli and Luigi Rinaldo Legnani and Sor's pupil, Napoléon Coste, who became the leading guitarist in his native France. Sor's 20th-century successor is arguably Francisco Tárrega, considered the father of the guitar. His technical innovations helped to raise the profile of the guitar as a solo instrument, as he successfully persuaded Antonio de Torres Jurado to construct a large instrument suitable for use in concert halls. The Spaniards dominated this period – alongside Tárrega were Isaac Albéniz (who never actually wrote specifically for the guitar, but whose music has been arranged a number of times), Joaquín Turina, Joaquín Rodrigo and Manuel de Falla. Rodrigo's homage to Falla – the Invocación y danza – shows the composer's recognition of Falla as one of the greatest influences on Spanish composers working in the latter half of the 20th century. Next, we travel across the Atlantic to investigate one of the most important locations for the creation of guitar music: Latin America. Composers working here took particular inspiration from indigenous influences, including the Paraguyan Agustín Barrios Mangoré and the Argentinian Ástor Piazzolla. Manuel Ponce, a leading Mexican composer, wrote his famous Estrellita, which soon became a beloved Mexican folk song. It is present here in a sparkling arrangement for solo guitar. The 20th century saw the expansion of the guitar across the globe. The repertoire grew widely, thanks to composers from such diverse places as Russia, Poland and the Netherlands. German composer Hans Werner Henze wrote his original Royal Winter Music, based on Shakespearean characters, in the late 1970s. Jewish composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, born in Italy, spent much of his career in Hollywood, after fleeing the Nazi threat in Europe in 1939. He still wrote much classical music alongside his works for the big screen, including his well known Les Guitares bien tempérées. Dutch composer Henk Badings was discredited after the war for having cooperated with the Nazis. A recent renewed interest in his music has resulted in this recording of his Twelve Preludes for solo guitar – a world premiere for Brilliant Classics, first released in 2012. This set features performers of international quality. Among them are: the Paganini expert Luigi Attademo; Cristiano Porqueddu, who will be performing in New York's Carnegie Hall in July 2017; Frédéric Zigante; Giulio Tampalini; and many more besides. There are numerous world premiere recordings, of works both modern and older, thanks to recent rediscoveries. The guitars used range from carefully crafted modern instruments to period instruments, including the 'Sabionari' guitar by Antonio Stradivari. The release will be sure to satisfy both guitar aficionados and those looking to dip in and out of a diverse mixture of guitar music from around the globe. The most extensive guitar collection available! This 40 CD set spans several centuries of guitar music: from the Baroque where the guitar gained preference over its ancestor the Lute, to the Classical Period in which the instrument was emancipated and gained its rightful place as a serious concert instrument, through Spain, its country of origin, right into the 20th century where famous composers extended its sonic possibilities to the very borders of the spectrum. A treasure trove of unprecedented scope and substance, for both connoisseur and music lover, performed by world class guitarists! Recorded between 1996 and 2015. Contains liner notes written by Philip Borg-Wheeler specially for this release. The booklet presents the necessary background to the music, putting each composer in his historic perspective.

  22. Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1

    L'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics pubblica il CD Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1 Easy Studies for Guitar è una trilogia di release discografiche dedicata a composizioni di autori del XX e del XXI secolo con scopi prettamente didattici. La distribuzione dell'opera prevede: Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1 (2016) (Garrido, Koshkin, Smith-Brindle, Tansman) Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.2 (2017) (Tansman, Dodgson, Cavallone, Patachich, Ponce) Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.3 (2019) (Cavallone, Bellomo, Jean Absil, Anton Stingl, Chassain, Patachich, Biberian) In questo primo volume sono contenuti 54 studi per chitarra di Eduardo Garrido (1975), Nikita Koshkin (1956), Reginald Smith-Brindle (1917-2003), e Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986) Una delle recensioni: http://www.cristianoporqueddu.com/8019-recensione-su-guitart-per-easy-studies-for-guitar-vol-1/ Dal sito dell'editore: “The growing library of guitar music on Brilliant Classics already encompasses several albums of etudes and miniatures written for students and amateur players. From rare to well-known, there are the studies of Gangi (BC95204), Tansman (BC95221), Castelnuovo-Tedesco (BC95219) and Gilardino (BC9285), among many others. The Gilardino album features the artistry of guitarist and composer Cristiano Porqueddu, who has made several other well-received albums for Brilliant Classics, including collections of rarely encountered composers in ‘Novecento Guitar Preludes’ (BC9292) and ‘Novecento Guitar Sonatas’ (BC9455), both of which include many first recordings. Reviewing the set of Preludes, MusicWeb International praised the ‘coruscating variety, fine recorded sound and lovingly shaped playing… Porqueddu’s playing is miraculously clean and there’s very little fret noise.’ Porqueddu’s appetite for the unusual and sense of adventure is further confirmed by a new set of ‘Easy Studies for Guitar’, containing music that is as satisfying to listen to as it is relatively unchallenging to master for the intermediate-to-advanced student guitarist. Only Tansman has a currency outside guitarists, but the other three, more contemporary figures speak with powerfully individual voices. The Russian composer-guitarist Nikita Koshkin may be a particularly welcome discovery for non-initiates: born in 1956, he counts the music of Shostakovich and Prokofiev as important early influences, but his own music lies within the Spanish guitar tradition, while employing more modern harmonies and building to climaxes of unexpected tension and drama. Born in Granada in 1975, Eduardo Garrido now teaches and composes in Mexico, and in his studies can also be heard a non-native wildness and urgency, for all that they are sympathetically composed with intermediate students in mind. Master guitarist Cristiano Porqueddu embarks on a praiseworthy and ambitious recording project: Easy Studies for Guitar, works written by famous or less well known composers with the special aim to educate, challenge, develop and entertain the aspiring guitar student. The works focus on certain technical issues disguised as it were in the musical content and its emotions. The first CD contains works by Eduardo Garrido, Nikita Koshkin, Alexandre Tansman and Reginald Smith-Brindle.

  23. Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1

    L'etichetta discografica Brilliant Classics pubblica il CD Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1 Easy Studies for Guitar è una trilogia di release discografiche dedicata a composizioni di autori del XX e del XXI secolo con scopi prettamente didattici. La distribuzione dell'opera prevede: Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.1 (2016) (Garrido, Koshkin, Smith-Brindle, Tansman) Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.2 (2017) (Tansman, Dodgson, Cavallone, Patachich, Ponce) Easy Studies for Guitar Vol.3 (2019) (Cavallone, Bellomo, Jean Absil, Anton Stingl, Chassain, Patachich, Biberian) In questo primo volume sono contenuti 54 studi per chitarra di Eduardo Garrido (1975), Nikita Koshkin (1956), Reginald Smith-Brindle (1917-2003), e Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986) Una delle recensioni: http://www.cristianoporqueddu.com/8019-recensione-su-guitart-per-easy-studies-for-guitar-vol-1/ Dal sito dell'editore: “The growing library of guitar music on Brilliant Classics already encompasses several albums of etudes and miniatures written for students and amateur players. From rare to well-known, there are the studies of Gangi (BC95204), Tansman (BC95221), Castelnuovo-Tedesco (BC95219) and Gilardino (BC9285), among many others. The Gilardino album features the artistry of guitarist and composer Cristiano Porqueddu, who has made several other well-received albums for Brilliant Classics, including collections of rarely encountered composers in ‘Novecento Guitar Preludes’ (BC9292) and ‘Novecento Guitar Sonatas’ (BC9455), both of which include many first recordings. Reviewing the set of Preludes, MusicWeb International praised the ‘coruscating variety, fine recorded sound and lovingly shaped playing… Porqueddu’s playing is miraculously clean and there’s very little fret noise.’ Porqueddu’s appetite for the unusual and sense of adventure is further confirmed by a new set of ‘Easy Studies for Guitar’, containing music that is as satisfying to listen to as it is relatively unchallenging to master for the intermediate-to-advanced student guitarist. Only Tansman has a currency outside guitarists, but the other three, more contemporary figures speak with powerfully individual voices. The Russian composer-guitarist Nikita Koshkin may be a particularly welcome discovery for non-initiates: born in 1956, he counts the music of Shostakovich and Prokofiev as important early influences, but his own music lies within the Spanish guitar tradition, while employing more modern harmonies and building to climaxes of unexpected tension and drama. Born in Granada in 1975, Eduardo Garrido now teaches and composes in Mexico, and in his studies can also be heard a non-native wildness and urgency, for all that they are sympathetically composed with intermediate students in mind. Master guitarist Cristiano Porqueddu embarks on a praiseworthy and ambitious recording project: Easy Studies for Guitar, works written by famous or less well known composers with the special aim to educate, challenge, develop and entertain the aspiring guitar student. The works focus on certain technical issues disguised as it were in the musical content and its emotions. The first CD contains works by Eduardo Garrido, Nikita Koshkin, Alexandre Tansman and Reginald Smith-Brindle. Cristiano Porqueddu, who already recorded more than 40 CD’s, all of them to great critical acclaim, takes his task seriously, always finding the right atmosphere and character of these delightful musical gems, aided by his immaculate technique. Excellent liner notes written by the artist.” INFO: http://www.brilliantclassics.com/articles/e/easy-studies-for-guitar-volume-1/ La tracklist completa: Eduardo Garrido (1975): “Alebrijes de la ciudad de México – 8 estudios breves para guitarra” Nikita Koshkin (1956): “Da Capo” 24 Easy Pieces Reginald Smith-Brindle (1917-2003): Ten simple preludes Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986): Douze Pièces Faciles pour Guitar Anteprime sul mio canale SoundCloud:
  24. Mario Gangi Studies for Guitar, Andrea Pace

    La nuova registrazione dei 22 Studi per chitarra di Mario Gangi a cura di Andrea Pace. Dal sito dell'editore: This is only the second complete recording of the 22 studies by Mario Gangi (1923-2010), and the first to have international distribution. Gangi wrote them towards the climax of his professional career as one of the most renowned guitarists in postwar Italy. He gave first performances of works by his fellow Italians Ennio Porrino and Goffredo Petrassi, among others, but this album grows from his lasting work as a teacher at the conservatories of Rome and Naples. Ricordi published his three-volume method which gathers up the fruits of decades of experience as a performer and teacher. The last part is dedicated to this set of 22 studies. Gangi devoted special attention to techniques pertaining to the left hand: fixed and barre chords, polyphony, scales and legato. In addition he developed exercises for perfecting advanced arpeggios, repeated notes and melodic thumb position. However, even the most casual attention paid to the album, and to Enrico Pace’s sensitive performance, will reveal to the listener that these studies are so much more than technical exercises, but fine, free-standing pieces in their own right. Admitting the influence of jazz and the Latin-American world of Astor Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos, they are unfailingly tuneful, readily capturing a mood whether snappy (the Seventh in particular) or often surprisingly rhapsodic: in this regard the first study sets the tone for the set as a whole. ‘Small masterpieces,’ Pace calls them in his booklet note, ‘small works of art in their own right, pieces that can hold their own in concert halls’; they will find an appeal way beyond the specialised guitar market. Mario Gangi (1923-2010) was one of the most important protagonists of the guitar in 20th century Italy. A performer of world rank he also did extensive scholarly work to promote the publication and performances of contemporary guitar works. The 22 Studies by Gangi deal with every technical aspect of the guitar technique: scales, arpeggios, repeated notes, polyphony, melodic use of the thumb. But far from being dry exercises they reveal a warm musical personality, which imbued the 20th century influences of Jazz, Latin-America, and the European guitar tradition. Played with consummate skill and feeling by master guitarist Andrea Pace, who already recorded successfully for Brilliant Classics works by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (BC94833).
