"La Musica dei Ricordi"

Selection of the musical treasures of the Archivio Storico Ricordi

Last year, Italian virtuoso Sandro Ivo Bartoli collaborated with the Puccini Festival Foundation and Archivio Storico Ricordi for a concert in Bayreuth, Germany. Soon after, he had the opportunity to search Archivio Storico Ricordi's priceless collection of scores in Milan. What he found was, in his own words, “a treasure trove of musical marvels”. Inspired by such abundance of masterworks, he devised “La Musica dei Ricordi”, a concert series that took place at the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan to wide critical acclaim. Maestro Bartoli brings to Japan some of the pearls he discovered in Milan, alongside celebrated masterworks that were published by Casa Ricordi. The programme also includes two world premiere performances: David Plylar's arrangement for the left hand alone of Chopin's Etude Op.25 No.7 and a Fantasia for violin and piano “Rimembranze del Giappone”, an important work especially written for renowned Canadian violinist Debra Fast and Sandro Ivo Bartoli by Italian Maestro Luciano Damarati.

Sandro Ivo Bartoli is a Steinway International Artist. Mishima Bunka Kaikan is a magnificient acoustic hall, and will provide its Steinway Gran Coda piano for this unique world class concert

Electro-acoustic guitar  – ambient/experimental

In a long career which began in 1985 as a teenager member of a rock band, Sergio has experimented with almost everything. During the ’90s Sergio focuses his work on steel-string guitar, performing live in Italy and Europe; in 1998 works on the Ark Ensemble project, an Italian modern quartet exploring the sound possibilities of each instrument of the group. His first solo guitar album, Blu, was produced in 2004 by the Grammy winner and founder of Windham Hill Records William Ackerman; his solo project, Aria Meccanica (CandyRat Records, 2009) is a conceptual work—a fascinating trip into all the possible sonorities created on the guitar: loops, vocals, percussion, objects, and live electronics are wisely melded into a poetic vision.
