  • Wagner L'anello del Nibelungo     sintesi sinfonica della Tetralogia, a cura di Alan Gilbert

Over the course of 26 years, between 1848 and 1874, Richard Wagner wrote the music and libretto for a cycle of four operas known as Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), an epic masterwork in which the composer sets out his conception of the "drama of the future": words and music joined together in the expression of a work of total art. American conductor Alan Gilbert has prepared an orchestral synthesis of Wagner's four-part cycle (referred to by the German "Ring"), which he will perform with Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia.
Indirectly related to Wagner is The Black Gondola, an orchestration by John Adams, one of the most renowned contemporary composers.
Initially written for piano, the piece came to Liszt in a highly suggestive dream of a funeral gondola slowly gliding down the Grand Canal. A few months later, in February 1883, he died in Venice.
To Liszt's son-in-law Richard Wagner, the whole story seemed like an omen.
Sol Gabetta, with her versatility and refined elegance, is a performer well suited for the prismatic nature of Bohuslav Martinů's Cello Concerto no. 1.
A Czech composer who lived in the first half of the twentieth century, Martinů was able to frequent the artistic avant-garde that brought life to Paris in the 1920s. He learned of impressionism, met Stravinsky, and acquired a passion for surrealist poetics; after Paris, he moved to the United States and grew fascinated with jazz flavoured with reminiscences of his native country's popular traditions. The Cello Concerto does much to reflect these experiences, and Gabetta terms this piece "minimalist in some ways, but rich in lyricism, virtuosity, and cheerfulness."
