May’s new release – Kurt Weill, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud

Live at the San Carlo theatre: two exceptional recordings from the stage of the oldest theatre in Europe, recorded at different times but presented for the first time on this CD. The programme opens under the prestigious baton of Sir Jeffrey Tate who directs the violin concerto by Kurt Weill – the violin is played by Gabriele Pieranunzi with great soloistic quality; the second and more recent recording sees another great musical star, the brother of Gabriele, Enrico, take his turn for the first time with Alessandro Carbonare on the clarinet in a more classical style. The notes and interviews with the two Pieranunzi brothers, both by the music critic Mattino Stefano Valanzuolo, help us understand the meaning, or meanings, and roles in this production which sits between genres (classical, popular, jazz).
