Clarinet Sonata in D major
Lo Spiritismo nella vecchia casa
Variations and Fugue in 12 tones on the name of Bach
ArtistsRocco Parisi (clarinet)
Andrea Favalessa (cello)
Gabriele Rota (piano)
The Clarinet Trio opens with a quick waltz (here Prokofiev’s influence is apparent) and continues with an elegiac duet between clarinet and cello, and then a headlong finale. From 1945, the Clarinet Sonata is more Neoclassical and restrained in its language; then comes a very late Allegro danzante composed in 1977. Lo spiritismo nella vecchia casa is a set of incidental music for solo clarinet, written to underscore a play of the same name by Ugo Betti and structured as a set of brief variations: a form which it shares with the Variations and Fugue in the twelve keys on the name of Bach, also from 1950. These are for solo piano and reveal what a technically gifted pianist Rota himself was: ‘he played the piano like another person talks’, recalled a friend. The fugal finale is of fearsome complexity, worthy of the formidable historical precedent. All three of these musicians are experienced exponents of Rota’s music.
Recorded 12 & 14 January 2015
