Davide Alogna, virtuoso Italian violinist invited by the Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca this week

The Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca offers its XVIII Concert of the I Season 2019 with the virtuoso violinist, Davide Alogna (Italy), guest soloist, on Friday May 17, at the Carlos Cueva Tamariz Theater at 8 PM. Admission is free, until full capacity.

Continuing with their efforts in the diversification of repertoires and soloists, we made two important releases in Cuenca this week. The Egmont Overture, by Beethoven, will open the concert to continue with Concerto for Violin all'antica, in La Menor, op. 75 by Ottorino Respighi (Premiere in Cuenca) and the Symphony No. 3 by Luis Humberto Salgado (Local premiere).

Davide Alogna, owner of an extensive international career is a young and dynamic Italian violinist. He has made numerous tours accompanied by several international orchestras, with the concerts of Vivaldi, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saƫns, Brahms, Katchaturian and Barber. He has collaborated, also as the first violin with prestigious institutions, such as the Giuseppe Verdi Symphony Orchestra of Milan, with the Orchestra of the National Academy of Santa Cecilia, with that of the Municipal Theater of Bologna, with the Regional of Tuscany. (ORT), with the Haydn de Bolzano. He has recorded as a soloist and has been invited for broadcasts on Radio Classica, Radio della Svizzera Italian (RSI), RadioRai, Radio Toscana Classica, Radio Popolare. He has recorded several CDs as a Soloist for the Brillant Classics, Velut Luna, Phoenix Classics and Amadeus labels.

* Egmont, Overture. Ludwig van Beethoven. The incidental music that Beethoven wrote 1809 in homage to Goethe for his "Egmont" has achieved a survival and special popularity thanks to the overture. The dramatic load is extraordinary and also highlights the descriptive force: faith, tenacity, courage and heroism until the death of Egmont, tenderness to Clara, her memory and lenitive, in exaltation of faithful love, source of good. Egmont is characterized by a great environmental force. The "Egmont" overture was performed for the first time on May 24, 1810.

* Concerto for Violin all'antica, in La Menor, op. 75. Ottorino Respighi. Premiere in Cuenca. Released in 1908, a date that gives Respighi the precursor status among the neoclassical composers of the 20th century. Neoclassicism began to be recognized as a trend only more than a decade later, with the reworking of Igor Stravinski's Pergolesi for his Pulcinella ballet. But in 1908, Respighi, who was still known as a violinist, had already made arrangements of Baroque compositions for violin; later he would organize the numerous pieces that made their way in The Birds and his three suites of Ancient Dances and Airs. The Concerto all'Antica is an original work conceived in line with the baroque concerto grosso in mind, although combined with characteristics of sonata form. The harmonic language is neo-baroque.

* Symphony No. 3. Premiere in Cuenca. Luis Humberto Salgado. The four movements are oriented in dance models of Rococo and Baroque, their perception is relatively easy, the greatest delight for the listener is to distinguish between traditional moments and their modern "exaggerations", by the extravagant instrumentation. In this symphony, Salgado does not merge Andean elements with modernism, rather he presents a stylistic and instrumentation exercise, an almost ironic example of his perfect mastery of any compositional challenge.
