Rebaudengo, Andrea; Mancuso, Giovanni

Not all the composers have such a deep and daily relationship with the piano like Rossano Pinelli, as this intense 2-hand and 4-hand collection shows. It is the same instrument which suggests the acoustic material the composition takes shape from. Also for the music not for piano Pinelli expresses his ideas starting from the piano and from acoustic images. The connection between the complexity of music and the complexity of life is at the base of Pinelli’s aesthetic/ethical idea, which – just like in daily life – moves on an inclusive thought, starting with Stravinskij, proceeding with ethnic Balkan and African music, jazz, medieval music, progressive rock, and more, in a vital synthesis. Also the dialectics between consonance and dissonance draws on the fluctuating moments of living, which are often perceived unintentionally. “Behavioural and mental unconscious processes are an unlimited source of inspiration” – says Pinelli – “The composer has to have their antennas always well tuned in to what is around them; but, above all, they don’t have to be afraid to constantly rummage through their own subconscious” and all the pieces presented in the cd follow this existential direction.
