Matinée in Casa Mozart – an absolute success for GIULIA ROSSINI, a young artist with a strong disposition
By Marvi Zanoni
Leonid Margarius’s students never disappoint. It was one of his pupils, Giulia Rossini – a 22-year old pianist with a slender and gentle figure and, yet, a strong disposition – to be entrusted with the Matinee in Casa Mozart from Sunday, May 17, 2015. The programme offered the comparison – not unusual, yet always compelling – between Mozart’s work and Beethoven’s language. With an aim to highlight the distinctive attributes of the two authors, the pianist, from Milan, has chosen to juxtapose Mozart’s Sonata KV 545 and Beethoven’s Sonata op. 27 n. 2.
The Sonata KV 545 is considered “easy”, but make no mistake: easy is far from lacking. There are no simple piano pages in Mozart: they all require the sensitivity, the levity, the agility, the command that Giulia Rossini gracefully displayed.
Quite to the opposite, Beethoven’s Sonata, known as Moonlight, expects the performer to showcase a complete range of touch and a varied array of chromatic tones. With crucial artistry, this young pianist managed to carry her audience, candidly, from the consuming and gentle nocturnal fullness of the first movement through to the passionate and tempestuous energy of the third movement.
Giulia Rossini has won over the passionate audience of Casa Mozart, proving that her piano career is already off to a promising path.
The next meeting with the AMI-Mozart Boys&Girls will take place on Saturday May 30, 2015, at the Sala Filarmonica in Rovereto, starting at 4.30 pm.
The Mozart Boys&Girls & Friends event will be a truly special one. Together with the members from Casa Mozart, there will be friends from Bozen, Trieste and Switzerland. Free Entry.
