These three magnificent works belong in the repertoire of cellists everywhere. They are full of Villa-Lobos’ signature exotic instrumental textures, folk-like melodies, and abundant invention. They are also harder than hell to play, and difficult to balance. Villa-Lobos was a cellist himself, and loved the instrument’s low, dark register. Penetrating his dense orchestration without making the instrument sound like a dying cow is just one of the many challenges facing cellists attempting to come to grips with this marvelously expressive music, though recordings can solve this problem with sensitive microphone placement. Antonio Meneses understands both the music and its performance problems, and his lower register manages to sound gruff without undue signs of bovine distress. He’s helped by some very sensitive accompaniments; Pérez projects the music’s lush timbres without laying it on too thick.

For all the charges of unacceptable schematicism levelled at Vivaldi and his kind, Monica Huggett, as supremely imaginative as well as technically and stylistically accomplished an exponent of the baroque violin as any, demonstrates clearly that this music benefits from the guiding hand of a charismatic interpreter: her delivery of Vivaldi’s exuberant, even manic, inspiration is never less than involving and, in the slow movements, never less than touching.

Antonio Fogazzaro - Il Santo
Italian | 2015 | 336 pages | ISBN: 8852062300 | EPUB | 0,6 MB

"Il santo" è il romanzo degli spostamenti e dei cambiamenti. Jeanne viaggerà dal Belgio all'Italia per ritrovare il suo innamorato; Pietro passerà dalla via del peccato al convento, e da lì si muoverà seguendo un disegno imperscrutabile. Entrambi muteranno il loro reciproco amore, dapprima denso di passione, in qualcosa di diverso e - tuttavia - di immutata grandezza. Questi spostamenti sono parte di un cambiamento più radicale che Fogazzaro suggerisce sempre più chiaramente nel dipanarsi della vicenda. È alla Chiesa, alla comunità dei fedeli, che si richiede la più profonda e radicale trasformazione e il ritrovamento delle sue stesse radici. Una nuova conversione, insomma, che è il senso ultimo dell'esistenza del "santo".

Nine cello sonatas by Vivaldi have survived. Six of them were published as a set in Paris in about 1740; that set, mistakenly known as the composer's Op. 14, contains the sonatas recorded in this release. The three remaining sonatas come from manuscript collections. All but one of the six works are cast in the slow-fast-slow-fast pattern of movements of the sonata da chiesa. The odd one out, RV46, in fact, retains the four movement sequence but inclines towards the sonata da camera in the use of dance titles. The music of these sonatas is almost consistently interesting, often reaching high points of expressive eloquence, as we find, for example, in the justifiably popular Sonata in E minor, RV40. Christophe Coin brings to life these details in the music with technical assurance and a spirit evidently responsive to its poetic content. Particularly affecting instances of this occur in the third movements of the A minor and the E minor Sonatas where Coin shapes each phrase, lovingly achieving at the same time a beautifully sustained cantabile.

This release by Leif Ove Andsnes was anxiously awaited by both fans and EMI executives after the pop sales levels achieved by his album featuring the first two Rachmaninov concertos, and it seems likely that the Norwegian pianist will once again serve those who stand and wait. He has executed the undeniably neat trick of breathing new life into some of the most stolidly ensconced works of the piano concerto repertory, draining them of Russian sentiment and replacing those vital fluids with stunning technical mastery delivered at breakneck speed (especially in the outer movements of the Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 30), and with a sort of hard edge.

Following his attractive performance of six of Vivaldi's cello sonatas, Christophe Coin has recorded six of the composer's 24 or so concertos for the instrument. Five of these, Michael Talbot tells us in an interesting accompanying note, probably belong to the 1720s while the sixth, the Concerto in G minor (RV416), is evidently a much earlier work. Coin has chosen, if I may use the expression somewhat out of its usual context, six of the best and plays them with virtuosity and an affecting awareness of their lyrical content. That quality, furthermore, is not confined to slow movements but occurs frequently in solo passages of faster ones, too. It would be difficult to single out any one work among the six for particular praise. My own favourite has long been the happily spirited Concerto in G major (RV413) with which Coin ends his programme. Strongly recommended. (Gramophone Magazine)

Martin Heidegger è stato tra i più grandi e controversi maestri del Novecento. A trent'anni dalla morte, le questioni da lui poste agitano ancora la comprensione filosofica del nostro tempo. Qual è il segreto della sua perdurante attualità? Antonio Gnoli e Franco Volpi hanno raccolto le testimonianze eccellenti di protagonisti del pensiero contemporaneo che hanno conosciuto Heidegger da vicino: Ernst Jünger, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Ernst Nolte e Armin Mohler. A questi si aggiunge la voce del figlio Hermann, che svela aspetti inediti della biografia del padre soffermandosi tra l'altro sugli anni che lo videro compromesso con il nazismo .
