For some periods of its long history Venice was the most alive and artistically innovative city in Italy. Around the turn of the seventeenth century it was more – the veritable music capital of Europe. Musicians from north and west Europe stayed there to learn from the composers, instrumentalists and singers who had either been born in Venice, or had themselves gravitated to the Republic's glorious and inspiring cultural (and physical) environment. Only Dario Castello (fl. 1600-1630) of those composers presented here falls into the first category.

Born in Brescia around 1571, Giovanni Battista Fontana lived in Venice, Rome and Padua, where he died during the plague of 1630. His music surprises by the mastery of counterpoint, the simplicity and the expression of its slow movements, the complexity of its ornamentation and the elegant vivacity of its short dance sections. Nicknamed 'dal Violino' and described as "one of the most singular virtuosos the age has seen". Fontana has left us an outstanding example of early Baroque instrumental music. On this release, Daniel Cuiller leads the ensemble Stradivaria in a selection of sonatas.

About Dario Castello and Giovanni Battista Fontana, two Italian composers from the turn of the 17th century, musical scholarship hasn’t much to tell us. We know as little about Castello, who was leading an ensemble at St. Mark’s around 1629, as we do about the exact birth and death dates of Fontana, who came from Brescia and probably perished during the 1630 outbreak of plague in Padua. Yet there are a number of surviving works by both men that reveal them to have been remarkable composers for the violin. Two books by Castello of sonate concertate in one to four parts, in stil moderno with continuo, were printed during the composer’s lifetime. In his new recording violinist John Holloway has selected a number of sonatas from this collection to couple with similar works by Fontana, some originally for violin as well as some conceived for other string or wind instruments.

Nell’antichità si riteneva che il pianeta Marte – osservato, temuto e ammirato per il suo colore, un rosso inquietante e minaccioso – potesse scatenare guerre, conflitti e passioni fra gli uomini. La vicenda che lo riguarda comincia all’alba del genere umano, già nel III millennio a.C., con racconti e leggende, e da allora il Pianeta Rosso non ha mai cessato di esercitare il suo fascino, accendendo l’ardore conoscitivo e dando impulso a sperimentazioni scientifiche e tecnologiche via via più avanzate. A partire dalle osservazioni di Giovanni Schiaparelli, che grazie alla scoperta dei “canali” nella seconda metà dell’Ottocento avanzò l’ipotesi della presenza di vita

Giuseppe Zaccaria, "Giovanni Boccaccio. Alle origini del romanzo moderno (I grandi tascabili)"
Italian | ASIN: B00MTTV2K2 | ISBN: 8845277593 | 17 settembre 2014 | EPUB | 142 pages | 2.10 MB

Un viaggio nell’opera di Boccaccio lungo la frontiera che separa l’epica dal romanzo. Se l’autore fiorentino è figlio di una tradizione composita, che include il romanzo greco dell’età ellenistica e quello cavalleresco, il romanzo d’avventura e quello di costume, è nel Decameron che il tema dell’amore, della famiglia, del matrimonio, si libera dall’impianto retorico e mitologico tradizionale: è qui l’inizio del romanzo moderno.

Ida Lupino is a fresh and creative album, distinguished by deep listening and focused interaction. At its centre is the remarkable improvisational rapport of two Italian musicians – pianist Giovanni Guidi and trombonist Gianluca Petrella. Their musical understanding – already apparent to listeners who heard them in Enrico Rava’s band – has been further refined in a widely-travelled duo which seeks encounters with fellow improvisers.

Creating that perfect album is as tricky as setting up the heist of a maximum security bank. Plans need time to mature, a milllion dreams are etched out and friends you can trust are kept waiting in the wings. Everything is suspended in time until the right day comes along; then it all swings into action as naturally as can be. Giovanni Mirabassi was bound to succeed, "sooner or later". This 35 year old Italian jazz pianist has been a lone ranger on the French jazz scene for many years. In 1998 he earned widespread critical acclaim by 'breaking into' that scene with the meticulous, high-precision Architectures. In 2001 he made a louder impact with Avanti - a series of revolutionary songs transformed into jazz standards. Then, in 2003, he dared to go one step further with Air, where a three way dialogue between a piano, a trombone and a bugle took flight. Yet Mirabassi remained in the sidelines, waiting for the day when he would make his mark. Now the day has finally come.
