Product Description

The Chapter Four of the collection that Stradivarius, in collaboration with RAI Radio 3, dedicates to the prestigious Milano Musica Festival, one of the most important Italian festival devoted to Contemporary Classical Music. Dedicated to the violinist Hiromi Kikuchi, its first interpreter in Berlin in 2005, the ample Hipartita by Kurtág is a collection of eight different pieces not always originally for the violin - the first was for the flute, the fifth for the voice - re-elaborated and ideally forming a collection in a single Score. The short Henry James novel The Aspern Papers relates to the attempts made by an American art critic to come into possession of the letters of the deceased Jeffrey Aspern, a poet venerated by him more than any other. Sciarrino wrote the music for the staging Aspern in Singspiel form in 1978, later bringing it together in a Suite. We recognise in this music some of the premises of the novel, but taken to the extreme. The opera is pervaded by the presence of Mozart´s Nozze di Figaro, but this is not a case of transcriptions or of citations: the figure of Mozart does not appear in its physical nature, with the overwhelming weight of its historical dimension, as happens in many experiences of the modernity contemporary to the composition of Aspern. Rather, it is seen from a distance, touched by the memory.
