Notes and Editorial Reviews

The piano is a quite versatile instrument and essentially a percussion by itself; percussion is per se a universe of possibilities, at times a keyboard in itself. The invention on emission and interaction modes may generate variably dis-concerting situations – therefore exploring the instruments of the three pieces may help us to briefly outline the sound scenarios. The programme chosen by Beneventi and Rebaudengo summons a wide choice of instruments but somewhat coalesced in strong characterizations (metal - skin - wood). Composers and pieces offer a live and unexpected image of the “specialty” of this duo, and represent the tout-court compositional invention of France and Italy from the last decades. If we join the nationalities with the Read more origins (Jewish-Moroccan and Greek for the French Ohana and Aperghis, and Lecce, Southern Italy, for Fedele), a nice geometrical figure can be drawn in the Mediterranean Sea; perhaps the eloquence and expansiveness of their musical pieces, so different from each other, are the result of this common background.
