ANDREA LUCCHESINI 3rd Schubert CD review

Beautiful review by Dino Villatico of Andrea Lucchesini's latest album dedicated to Schubert:

"Everything in Schubert sings, even the ostinato bass that often supports the melodies, the repeated chords that seem to anticipate the sound bands of electronic music. He also sings the rhythm of death that pervades the entire last sonata: dattilo followed by spondeo. It can be terrible. But it can also be very sweet. And from Lucchesini's fingers this extreme, penetrating sweetness becomes more terrible, more desperate than a cry."

Gabriele Carcano at Fidelio Orchestra in London

An important project awaits Gabriele Carcano in London in the coming months: the complete cycle of Beethoven's Sonatas in a place of great charm such as the Fidelio Orchestra, a venue in central London, which in a short time has become a fixed appointment for many, not only for the quality of the performers, such as Steven Isserlis, Victoria Mullova, London Mozart Players or Angela Hewitt, but also and above all for the complicity between performers and audience.

Curiosity and innovation are some of the fundamental aspects of Gabriele Carcano's personality, always looking for new ways to communicate music.

ENRICO ONOFRI

The CD Into Nature conducted and played by Maestro Enrico Onofri and the Imaginarium Ensemble, is CD of the month on Amadeus Magazine and won the prestigoius Diapason d'Or of the french magazine:

"The splendid result, often brilliant, is devoid of blatant effects that overshadow the rest. It rather recalls the harmony of some rural landscapes used by Giorgione as backdrop of his paintings, where the thousand voices of the Nature coexist enigmatically in a suspended and dreamlike dimension, out of a specific time."
-Massimo Rolando Zegna, Amadeus Magazine-

Stanislav Kochanovsky

Successful debut for Stanislav Kochanovsky with the Israel Philharmonic:

"It was with this well-known work that Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky began his masterful performance on Saturday evening as he led the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in a crisp, delightful exploration of the tragic composer. This was the first time Kochanovsky performed here and one can only hope he’ll return again and again. His presence on the stage is electric and the relation he seems to have with the musicians is uncanny: a gesture, and the music swells, a flicker, and it rises, with controlled, precise movement and without a hair out of place."
