Giovanni Allevi, il senso del ritmo e la cultura

Originally posted on mozart2006:
Ho sempre evitato di occuparmi di Giovanni Allevi, perchè lo trovo semplicemente uno squallido fenomeno da baraccone spacciato per artista. Ritengo oltretutto ridicolo il suo modo di proporsi da ragazzino discolo, tra l’ altro ormai quasi quarantacinquenne, e da caricatura dell’ artista tormentato dalla ricerca dell’ ispirazione. Un personaggio che mi ricorda irresistibilmente la macchietta del Maestro Ubaldo Scannagatti, “ggenio della mòseca”, raffigurata in modo esilarante da Totò nel film “Totò a colori”. Delle sue creazioni poi, che si riducono a un banale accrocchio di musichette buone al massimo per la suoneria di un cellulare, suonate… Continue reading Giovanni Allevi, il senso del ritmo e la cultura

I was married for less than two years in my twenties.  I’m here to say that it is not always men who get screwed in a divorce, in this case I had to pay a high price to get away from my ex; he took everything from me and i let him.

365 #1

While I am practicing very different pieces I decided to start this project with a very simple piece. And that for one reason. As I was asking around trying to find a booking agent, I stumbled upon an Italian guy offering these services here in the States. At that time I had many concerts, but I never recorded them, as I was more worried to give an excellent performance for the audience than to take the video camera. The only video I had online was a Bach’s performance. Well… this guy wrote me: “Do you play ONLY Bach?”. I DON’t … Continue reading 365 #1

365 Project

My main goal is to record and upload 365 videos of 365 different solo piano pieces of my repertoire from July 4th 2013 to July 4th 2014. The reason for that? MOTIVATION ! As I finished the Academy in Italy, Prof. Carla Giudici told me:” Whatever your life will be, keep working for the pleasure of working. Set a goal and also if you will not be able to accomplish that for different reasons, don’t stop being an artist and keep working for the art”. Thinking to those words, I will keep playing my repertoire for youtube. Not all those … Continue reading 365 Project
