Plays Baldassarre Galuppi

This is the brilliant pianist's first American release. Her interpretations of six piano sonatas by pre-Beethoven era composer Galuppi are sleek and modern with all the baroque filigree removed ~ pure moonlight and emotion. 100 years ahead of its time.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"An album born from a strange bet whereby Alessandra Celletti returns to classical music after her celebrated interpretations of Satie, Glass, Ravel and Debussy. The Transparency label, famous as recent distributor of Sun Ra's unpublished works, commissioned Alessandra to record the entirety of Karlheinz Stockhausen's work for pianoforte, the famous Klavierstücke. It wasn't difficult for the avant-garde American label to be convinced instead of this project proposed by the Roman pianist, apparently the polar opposite from the initial idea however via this little known composer, Baldassarre Galuppi (1706-1785), Celletti has once again produced an album that appears to stop time for the listener, suspending him/her in a universe where grace and the purest of intentions are the important elements. The music of Galuppi, known for the severity of its score, comes resuscitated by Alessandra in a game of emotional change-ups which already made her Satie the best on record. Originally the compositions by Galuppi were daring for their time and decidedly avant-garde even for the flourishing ambiance of eighteenth-century Venice, rendering the composer an outsider. In this new delicate and intriguing masterwork, personality and truly poetic charm will certainly beguile any fan of new music who doesn't bother him/herself with labels and genres. File under: new music from the 18th Century. --Massimo Marchine, Rockerilla magazine, 9 out of 10 ------(Update: Alessandra played four times in the U.S. during 2009. She will return for concerts on the west coast in May.)
