Cat. 95072 – (P) & (C) 2013 Brilliant Classics – EAN CODE: 5028421950723
This new release showcases four works from Albini’s sacred oeuvre, including his Pange lingua, full of powerful energy and drama, and the Missa Prima, performed for the first time at the reopening of the 15th-century Pavia Cathedral in 2012 after almost 30 years of restoration. The other two works on the disc, Testamento Spirituale for wind quartet and Preghiera for recorder trio, give the voice a different role, with the instrumental music of the former originating from the a text by Father Christian de Cherge, and the voice no longer present in the latter – described in the liner note as ‘more of a hidden memory’. Seasoned performers of 20th-century repertoire, the Choir of the Faculty of Musicology Cremona gives dedicated performances of Albini’s music in this collection under the baton of Ingrid Pustijanac, with excellent instrumental support from musicians of the 15.19ensemble and Il Giardino delle Muse. TRACKLIST 01. Pange Lingua, for choir [6:29]; Missa Prima, for choir: 02. Kyrie [0:48], 03. Gloria [3:13], 04. Sanctus [1:22], 05. Agnus Dei [1:59]; 06.

This collection showcases a variety of works from Albini’s oeuvre, many of which have been praised for their mathematical significance. Strong links to Western Classical music can be heard in each of these pieces, but mathematical theory is also employed in a variety of ways: Una teoria della Prossimità is completely determined by mathematics, from its structure to its continuity and notation, and Estatica is formed around the single tone of E and expanded outwards. The collection also features three of the string quartets; with String Quartet No.5 – a rapidly changing piece constantly underpinned by the G minor scale – followed by the strict motion of No.6 and the innovative No.7, which is based on Albini’s own specific system of triadic cycles. TRACKLIST 01. Corale No. 4, preludio for Cello Solo [1:42]; Una teoria della Prossimità, for String Orchestra: 02. I – Densità [3:04], 03. II – Continuità [2:56]; Corali #27 e #41, Double Concerto for Violin, Guitar Duo and String Orchestra: 04. Corale #27[6:55], 05. Corale #41 [6:30]; 06. Estatica, for Guitar [5:52]; 07. String Quartet n.5 [4:42]; 08. String Quartet n.6 “Solo per grado congiunto” [4:51]; 09. String Quartet n.7 “Corale” [9:58].

STR 33854 – (P) & (C) STRADIVARIUS – Italia – EAN CODE: 8011570338549
The axtistic project “Finito illimitato” was first staged on 23 May 2014, offering a journey through the history of the Universe from its birth to the present day. The “generating” scientific concept of this artistic event is the cuirent standard Model of the Universe, known as the Big Bang Model. It was considered that ‘Linea” by Luciano Berio could admirably and theatrically evoke the situation created in the initial phases of life of the Universe: the piece describes the “first phase” of the outline previously mentioned in this text, approximately corresponding to the first second of life in the history of the Universe. Its extremely simple beainning is based on the minor third interval and its segmentation into compositional figu-res that “germinate” (and always lead back to it). The initial monody is played by ali the instruments in sync, and then “led” by Berio to produce more and more complex divisions, a world of continuous “fringing” of the sound fabric that well represents the previous Big-Bang phase. The subsequent division of the piece into new “explosions” of music in various expressive directions suggested the description of the Big Bang Model. The following slow flow of the composition towards a final phase of incre-asingly pronounced rarefaction well represents a link with the “second phase” of the concluding passage that follows, the moment when the superforce lapses into the various forces of nature, The work “Pulse and Lighf by Ivan Fedele is inspired by the “third phase” of the history of the Universe, when, after neutral atoms nave ormed, light begins to “travel in the dark”. The resulting explosion of radiation (second movement “Phos”) and the following third movement, Nero chiaro”, evoke the second major “trauma” in the history of the Universe, the decoupling of light from matter, followed by a further phase of cosmic stasis, well-described with a few highly “luminous” sounds that form the theatrical note of “Nero chiaro”. The work by Ivan Fedele ends with two movements that well portray the “new world” created about 380,000 years after the Big Bang occurred: a world that naturally is not yet “our” world but partly resembles it, since light has created “Altro spazio” (other space – fourth movement) and “Altro tempo” other time – fifth movement). The work “Terza Algebra del Tempo” by Giovanni Albini is inspired by the fourth and fifth phase in the history of the Universe: from the reation of stars and planets, to that of life and mankind. From the gestures and initial spatialization that symbolically recall ancient Chinese characters ^ (tian), literally ‘cosmo’, ‘sky, ‘stare”, as well as ‘nature’ and ‘head’, a swirling rhythm develops comprising a precise generative process of al-gebraic origin; a metaphor of the many interconnected revolutions of celestial bodies that are gradually determined in a constantly expanding Universe.
