Fellini e la musica
Nelle opere cinematografiche di Federico Fellini è sempre presente un personaggio che non appare mai nell’elenco dei protagonisti: Ë la Musica, che interagisce con tutti gli elementi presenti nel film e diventa una componente fondamentale della narrazione cinematografica. Fellini si affida sempre a mani sapienti per la scrittura della musica dei suoi film: indimenticabili i temi scritti da Nino Rota per il suoi pi˘ importanti capolavori come La strada, La dolce vita, Amarcord, per citarne alcuni.

La New Talents Jazz Orchestra, diretta da Mario Corvini, presenta il progetto musicale “Fellini e la musica”, ideato e curato da Maurizio Miotti. Ospite díonore sar‡ il clarinettista Gabriele Mirabassi, uno dei massimi virtuosi odierni a livello internazionale.

In questo concerto la New Talents Jazz Orchestra, composta da 17 musicisti, proporr‡ i temi pi˘ famosi delle opere di Fellini, rileggendo in chiave originale le musiche di film come La strada, Otto e mezzo, Le notti di Cabiria, Amarcord, e molti altri capolavori

The arrangements of the pieces were written by: M. Corvini, F. Piana, M. Tiso, M. Miotti and R. Nebbiosi.

PROGRAM

19 AUGUST
GIULIANI / BOSSO “CONNECTION”

Rosario Giuliani - sax
Fabrizio Bosso - trumpet
Alberto Gurrisi – hammond
Marco Valeri - drums

Two sublime Italian musicians, Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet and Rosario Giuliani on saxophone, lead the quartet complemented by Alberto Gurrisi on organ and Marco Valeri on drums, performing a highly interesting repertoire of both standards and original compositions with strong rhythmic connotations.

An emotional journey that stems from the human and musical encounter, which has now lasted for more than two decades, of two great Italian jazz performers, masterfully supported by Gurrisi and Valeri, who are also considered to be outstanding in the national jazz scene.

21 AUGUST
REA / DAMIANI "DESIDERI TRADITI"

Danilo Rea - piano
Paolo Damiani - double bass

Damiani and Rea have been playing together for over 30 years in different formations . Damiani's CD "Al tempo che farà" (2007) winner of 3 referendums as best record of the year features Rea on piano.

In this new project the encounter between the two takes place on the level of melody and an artistic collaboration that over time has turned into a deep friendship. The repertoire includes original compositions of the two artists and well-known songs of different origins punctually betrayed.

Tradition and betrayal chase each other , betrayal being in this case the highest possible proof of love for a heritage that others preserve with philologically perfect interpretations or slaughter with operations of dubious taste.

Here, on the contrary, the trends refer to paths that refer to an idea of multiplicity as Italo Calvino describes it in his Lezioni Americane: what counts in a story is not its closure in a harmonious figure but the centrifugal force that is released from the story, the plurality of languages as a guarantee of a non-partial truth.

FABIO ZEPPETELLA HANDMADE

Fabio Zeppetella - guitar
Roberto Tarenzi - piano
Jacopo Ferrazza - double bass
Fabrizio Sferra - drums

Handmade is a thrill that takes us straight into the soul of the author with 9 tracks (except for the great John Coltrane's 8) all composed "by hand" by Zeppetella whose new project finds him leading a quartet of world-class jazz musicians-Roberto Tarenzi on piano, Jacopo Ferrazza on bass and Fabrizio Sferra on drums.

The originality of the sound that emanates from Fabio Zeppetella's fingers in this latest project seems created by the artist and chiseled in his own image. Endowed with impeccable technique and great musical sensitivity, he uses a unique and personal language, the result of a study always devoted to the search for a style that over the years he has made his own.

He has arrived at the elaboration of an entirely original sound by moving from the tradition and music of such masters as Charlie Cristian and Wes Montgomery to the evocation of be-bop and hard-bop of the 1960s. In his phrasing one discovers the dominant aspects of a language that is never predictable, sometimes virtuosic sometimes sweet but always essential.

Its dominant characteristics consist of the sweetness and strength inherent in the original way of interpreting music, in which the desire to seek a virtual connection with poetry appears evident.
