Info for Dialogues (Scarlatti & Berio / Schubert & Widmann)

A dialogue between classical and modern: Berio’s references to Scarlatti and Widmann’s homage to Schubert are contrasted with original compositions of the two earlier composers, weaving both original and reference into a new whole. This juxtaposition brings to light innovations and divergences as well as a continuation of and indebtedness to the past – fertile terrain for exciting discoveries!

Luciano Berio's references to Scarlatti and Jörg Widmann's homage to Schubert are contrasted by Andrea Lucchesini with original works of the two earlier composers, weaving both original and reference into a new whole. Prominent modern-day composers cultivate a relationship with historical compositional styles, bringing to light innovations and divergences as well as a continuation of and indebtedness to the past.

Berio and Widmann are both closely involved with this new recording: Lucchesini and Berio enjoyed a close personal relationship during the composer's lifetime, while Jörg Widmann wrote a text for the new production and is also connected to Andrea Lucchesini.

Andrea Lucchesini is one of the leading Italian pianists of our day. His triumph at the Dino Ciani International Competition at a young age marked the beginning of his international concert career. He has since performed all over the world with leading orchestras under renowned conductors as well as in solo recitals. His primary interest lies in contemporary music. Berio's Echoing Curves was premiered by Lucchesini, and he was also involved in the composition of the Sonata, Berio's last work for solo piano. Since 1990 the pianist has increasingly devoted himself to chamber music as well, performing in many different instrumental combinations and particularly in close collaboration with the cellist Mario Brunello and the Quartetto di Cremona.

Andrea Lucchesini, piano

Andrea Lucchesini
Born in 1965, Andrea Lucchesini studied piano with Maria Tipo and graduated in 1982. In 1983 he became the first Italian prize winner of the Dino Ciani International Piano Competition, which launched him on a brilliant international career. Since then he has performed with major orchestras under famous conductor, among which Claudio Abbado, Semyon Bychkov, Roberto Abbado Riccardo Chailly, Dennis Russell Davies, Charles Dutoit, Daniele Gatti, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Daniel Harding and Giuseppe Sinopoli.

In 1994 a jury of international musicologists, having considered the results achieved so far in his career, awarded Lucchesini the prestigious Accademia Chigiana Prize and, in 1995, the Critics Prize F. Abbiati.

In July 2001 Andrea Lucchesini premièred the new Piano Sonata by Luciano Berio at the Zurich Festival, continuing the close relationship with the composer established when Andrea Lucchesini performed Berio’s Piano Concerto Echoing Curves all over the world, later recorded for BMG with the London Symphony Orchestra. Lucchesini’s interest for the XX century repertoire is demonstrated, besides his choice of programs, also by his registration of Schönberg Pierrot Lunaire and Berg Kammerkonzert with the Dresden Staatskapelle and Giuseppe Sinopoli for Teldec.

Deeply committed to chamber music as well, Andrea Lucchesini participates in the Lockenhaus and Moritzburg Chamber Music Festivals and from September 2005 he is the Artistic Director of the Chamber Music Festival in Florence.

In the season 2005-2006 we remind in particular the concerts with the London Philharmonic and Wladimir Yurowski, with the Galicia Orchestra and Carlo Rizzi, with Italian Radio National Orchestra and Yutaka Sado and with the BBC Orchestra in Manchester.
