"Kitgut" is an old word for catgut (which is not made from cat intestines), and sure enough, the Kitgut Quartet plays on historical instruments with gut strings. That's just one of the measures taken by the group to make English, four-part music of the late 17th century cohere with the Classical-era string quartet, here represented by Haydn's String Quartet in D major, Op. 71, No. 2. The ancestors of the string quartet lie in the Italian trio sonata and transitional genres like the Telemann Quadro, not in English music that happened to have four viol parts, and the Kitgut Quartet here conflates two different genres, viol consort music and instrumental pieces from theatrical works by Purcell and John Blow. Not only the instrumental sound but also the engineering has to be manipulated to make the program, with Haydn in the middle, hang together. The good news is that the players pull it off. They concede that Haydn and Purcell are two different animals but claim that "on closer inspection of the spirit, the contrasts, the play on spatial effects, the asymmetries, the dance motifs that help to structure the freest and most experimental developments, the dramatic and theatrical lyricism, one wonders if the person playing that game is not still the same." The Haydn outer movements play off the humor of the Purcell theatrical pieces nicely, with the consort music of Purcell and Matthew Locke providing the main contrast. The result is a curiously attractive program, where another layer is added to the musical meanings of the original material. It can be heard for its sensuous surfaces, or as a kind of experiment, and one awaits future releases from this young group.

Fabio Biondi e Europa Galante, 30 anni di libertà

Il violinista e direttore d'orchestra italiano Fabio Biondi, famoso in particolare per la sua interpretazione delle “Quattro stagioni” di Vivaldi con la sua orchestra Europa Galante, è uno di quegli artisti che rifiutano qualsiasi forma di chiusura della musica in compartimenti stagni. Uno sguardo alla carriera di un musicista dotato di una grande versatilità di spirito, figura essenziale del violino barocco.

Il paradosso dello studio di Esa-Pekka Salonen

Esa-Pekka Salonen, acclamato direttore d'orchestra e prolifico compositore con oltre 60 album all'attivo, evoca il suo approccio al lavoro in studio, così specifico per la musica classica.

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.
