ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
24 Preludi Op. 34 (Leningrad/Moscow, December 1932 - March 1933)
Dances of the Dolls (Moscow, 1952)
Children’s Notebook Op.69 (Moscow, December 1944).
Il disco è nato da una profonda riflessione sulle estetiche di Shostakovich ed in particolare sul suo rapporto con l\'eredità ottocentesca, infatti il repertorio che ho selezionato privilegia quelle opere in cui l\'influenza della musica del passato è maggiormente presente.
Ho dato molta importanza alla comprensibilità del linguaggio, sia melodico sia armonico, cercando di rivelare e di far emergere la grande espressività di queste magnifiche composizioni con attenta cura di timbro e di fraseggio. Non ho volutamente rispettato retaggi da vecchia filologia che individuano imperativi categorici nelle obsolete indicazioni testuali tratte da imprecisi metronomi sovietici di primo novecento, questo perché a mio avviso l\'operazione interpretativa di un esecutore non comporta soltanto l\'astratta restituzione del testo in quanto tale, bensì l\'instaurazione di un rapporto con la psiche profonda dell\'autore, come in una seduta psicoanalitica in cui la partitura rappresenta l\'enigma da sciogliere. il mio sforzo è quindi quello di rivelare un mondo psichico sotteso alla musica stessa, attraverso scelte continue e meditate in cui ogni brano rappresenti al meglio ciò che esso è in se, spesso andando oltre ciò che si rivela allo stesso compositore.

Tullio Forlenza started his approach to written music thanks to his interest in polyphonic music, in fact the first composer entering in his repertoire was J.S. Bach, of whom he played the whole Little Preludes and Fugues at the age of twelve. Since then, while he was attending at the Conservatory and playing his first concerts, he progressively got near to the other pianistic authors, turning his attention in particular to italian repertory of the 18th century and to russian composers between 19th and 20th century. His interest in Shostakovich\'s pianistic music is some recent and it corresponds to the renewed interest that music of the historical part of the 20th century is now living, he\'s expecially acctracted by the syntesis between romantic heritage and the strong modernity urge of this composer. From 2006, in his concerts, he normally proposes music of this author, experience that leaded him to this discographic work.
Among his interests there is the one for 20th century not classic music too, in his musical experiences appear a long season as keyboard player in the dark-rock group \"Voices\" and he had occasions to get closer jazz music too, playing, as a soloist, jazz standards in some roman clubs.
During his carrer he got interests in didactic and in aesthetic questions of modern playing, in this role he gave monographic stages dedicated to different subjects concerning piano playing.

Shostakovic 24 preludi per pianoforte op. 34
I 24 preludi per pianoforte op. 34 di Shostakovich, composti nel 1933, sono brevi brani continuamente oscillanti tra il lirico ed il sardonico, il sognante e il grottesco. Tullio Forlenza ne da una lettura accuratissima e dettagliata, scolpendo icasticamente il carattere di ogni brano. Chiudono il disco le “Danze delle bambole” del 1952 e il “Children’s Notebook del 1944. Un disco imperdibile per gli amanti del pianoforte del XX secolo
