Weber: Piano Sonatas Nos. 1-2 - Invitation to the Dance

Shipping time: In stock | Free shipping within the US
Having enjoyed great success in the nineteenth century, Weber's Piano Sonatas gradually became neglected and pushed to the sidelines of the popular concert repertoire. Criticism levelled at Weber's music would usually claim too much emphasis on the showy and virtuosic, "acrobatic" side of performance and not enough actual depth in the music itself. The aim of this recording is to provide the listener with a different perspective, and to show not only the historical importance of this repertoire but Weber's innovative writing in terms of form, structure and tone. The recording artists have strived to reach a fair balance between spontaneity and freshness (without being superficial) and depth and density, and to avoid any didactic temptation. Born in Orvieto in 1980, Pier Paolo Vincenzi began studying the piano at a very young age in his hometown. In 1999, he graduated from a humanities-oriented secondary school with a grade of 100/100. At the age of 20, he received a diploma in piano from Terni’s G. Briccialdi Institute with the highest possible grades and honours. He continued taking post-graduate courses at the music school of Sesto Fiorentino under the guidance of Pier Narciso Masi and participated in numerous master and specialisation classes with him. He also attended Masi’s class at the “Incontri col Maestro” International Academy in Imola, receiving a three-year Masters degree in duo chamber music in 2007.
