Diviso in due movimenti, "Solo" racconta la vita e i sogni di Ulrich, un chimico bulgaro nato nella prima decade del Ventesimo secolo. Nel primo movimento Ulrich, ormai cieco e vecchissimo, chiuso in un anonimo appartamento di Sofia, si abbandona ai ricordi e rievoca la sua vita. Figlio di un ingegnere ferroviario, poco più che bambino, Ulrich ha due grandi passioni: il violino e la chimica. Negatagli la prima dal padre, parte per la Berlino di Einstein e Fritz Haber per approfondire la seconda. Ma i suoi studi sono interrotti quando la fortuna di famiglia si estingue e deve tornare a Sofia per aiutare i genitori. Non lascerà più la Bulgaria…

La trasformazione di Delhi in una metropoli del ventunesimo secolo è una storia entusiasmante, a tratti terrificante. Il boom successivo all'apertura dell'economia indiana ha tuffato la città in un tumulto di distruzione e creazione: baraccopoli e mercati sono stati abbattuti, centri commerciali e condomini sono sorti dalle rovine, grandi fortune sono state guadagnate. Ma la trasformazione è stata spietata, brusca e iniqua, e ha generato sentimenti sconcertanti: la città trabocca di rabbia e ambizione. Si potrebbe raccontare questa metamorfosi con l'immagine di un vulcano che erutta: Delhi oggi è il risultato di questa eruzione, di un vulcano nel cui nucleo caldissimo si è fusa la vecchia India e da cui sono usciti, devastando l'ambiente e la storia, ma anche portando novità e cambiamento, getti di lava incandescente sotto forma di cambiamenti sociali, economici e culturali incredibili e destabilizzanti.

Philip Glass - Solo Piano (1989)  Music

Genre: Classical, Minimalism | Label: CBS Records | Catalog: MK 45576

With SOLO PIANO, Glass presents himself "unplugged" - no electronic keyboards or synthesizers, and no overdubs, either - just solo piano. Here, Glass' connection to the established "classical" tradition is most evident. Though his pieces are "minimal" (subtly altered repeated patterns or melodic motifs), yet they have an unsentimental beauty and heartfelt grace that one would hear in J.S. Bach's English Suites, as well as the piano music of Chopin and Erik Satie.

Korean-born but a political exile in Germany for the last 25 years of his life, Isang Yun (1917-1995) managed to create a workable synthesis between western and eastern traditions, which fused a musical language based upon the total serialism of the post-war avant garde with elements drawn from both Korean and Chinese traditional styles. The three pieces here, all composed in the 1980s, show just how expressively effective that synthesis could be. In the First Chamber Symphony, it allows Yun to create a richly cushioned sound-world, full of shimmering textures, hazy microtones and supple, swooping gestures, while the rich string layering and urgent melodic writing of Tapis and the evocations of the sound of the Chinese harp in Gong-Hu, for solo harp and string orchestra, create music that is instantly attractive, even if the details of its inner workings are not always obvious.

Dave McKenna made a remarkably piano solo debut in 1955 with the fifteen tunes he recorded for ABC Paramount (1-15). The remaining tracks on this compilation also come from a solo album, one he cut almost eight years later for the label Realm. Playing without a rhythm section, a key challenge for a jazz pianist, McKenna accomplished a recital of lasting value and pleasure. He plays with strength, individuality, fine beat and technique, and constant taste in all tempos. He is a wonderfully co-ordinated two-handed pianist.

Wilhelm Kempff - Solo Piano Recordings (35CDs, 2012)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 5,37 Gb
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

The thirty-five CDs that make up the present boxed set are designed to acquaint listeners with one of the most important pianists of the 20th century or, if they are already familiar with his work, to allow them to rediscover it anew. Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) was the final representative of the great tradition of German pianists that also included Artur Schnabel (1882-1951) and Wilhelm Backhaus (1884-1969). Of the three, Kempff had by far the longest career - he gave his last public concert in 1982.

Tasto Solo rediscovers virtuoso and highly refined repertoires from the late Medieval and early Renaissance periods. Directed by the organetto player Guillermo Pérez, the ensemble approaches Early Music with exquisite performances by combining historical research, creativity and the art of transmitting emotions. Each concert is a unique event; the group pays full attention to every detail, including staging, dramatic rhythm, improvisation and dialogue between the artists. Contemporary audiences, whether connoisseur or inexperienced, are seduced from the very first note, overwhelmed by the sensuality and unusual sonorities that make up Tasto Solo’s particular identity.
