A nouveau petit train de plaisir, original rewriting and pyrotechnics by Carla Magnan and Carla Rebora of one of Corghi's most brilliant, joking and virtuous works, born in Pesaro in 1992 in the form of ballet: A petit train of the plaisir and originally written for two pianos and percussion, in turn inspired by Rossini's piano pieces: the Péchés de vieillesse.

The piano pieces are almost totally devoid of instrumental virtuosity but brilliant in the happiness of musical creativity and the irony of caricature. After 1855 (the year he moved to Paris), Rossini composed numerous works for piano and welcomed to his quarters the great interpreters of the time. It is assumed that some of these piano pieces were unwisely left unattended by Rossini and were then the object of curiosity on the part of Liszt and Moscheles; two frequent visitors to his living room.

The reading of the work, through the virtuosic funambulistic display and the improvisation of the two famous pianists imagined by Azio Corghi, reveals the true nature of the Péchés de vieillesse. The beauty of the melodic lines together with an unusual harmonic taste comes to enhance the acoustic components while gradually coming out of the field of "temperate" frequencies, reaching the most disparate sources of indeterminate sound with a clear reference to jazz intervention. From the running train emerges, from time to time, the amusing and ironic text of Guido Barbieri.

Duo Biondi Brunialti: piano duo



The "Varietè degli animali" is a "Theater Concert", where theater and music narrate together. Music, which by its very nature offers the marvelous freedom to suggest different images to everyone despite being the same for everyone, has inspired this "Variety of the animals." A show of Varia Art, where the pantomime (an ancient language of man), the juggler and magic are its essence; where Bustric, song after song, becomes, with the help of small inventions, a different being each time in the animal world. There is thus the construction of an imaginary Bestiary , which invents and represents variety with extraordinary skill and numbers.  A show interpreted by animals of the actor (the man), plays the role. A game on nature and its extraordinary forms and perhaps the suggestion and the hope that it will not be forgotten. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present myself publicly, prof. Bustric, welcome to this "Theater Concert" where the illusion becomes reality. Why make a difficult thing when you can make it impossible with a little effort? ... " A variety and not an animal carnival, as the original title of the work of Saint Saens says, because animals do not need to hide behind a mask to play or to get pleasure. For once it will not be the animals to adapt to the language of man but the exact opposite. This "Variety of animals" is a tribute to the rich and different animal world.

Bustric will be helped by the music of Saint Saens, later, a "Wise Animal". A game on nature and its extraordinary forms and perhaps the suggestion and the hope that it will not be forgotten. The Lion, the Elephant, the Crocodile, the Hen and many other animals will meet you at this extraordinary Theater Concert. The world needs shows where with light irony, ingenuity and imagination you show how rich it is with wonders and endless possible inventions. Good fun.

The little prince

By and with: Bustric (Sergio Bini)

Music by: C. Debussy, G. Bizet, M. Ravel, A. Canonici

Music is like water, it takes the shape of the container where it is always kept still water. With this play on words Bustric informs us that music frees viewers and actors, because being equal for everyone is different for everyone. Everyone can interpret it as he wishes.

Music is a travel companion able to become a protagonist at any moment without ever being overbearing. For many years Bustric composes and plays with stories and characters that talk with music. His world of magic, magic games, juggling, pantomime and words, marries beautifully with this ancient art that, of course, was born with man.

The Little Prince, loosely based on the work of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is proof of this. The story that everyone knows becomes the inspiration for scenes that expand and create surprises. The wonder hidden behind the words is sought here by the Little Prince. It is a free and light representation, where the simple scene by choice and necessity transforms them according to the moment, becoming each time a different landscape and magical space. The game itself tells and becomes history.

 

It is the way of staging Bustric, even before the story, to have an educational value that encourages creation. Inventing and creating is perhaps the most beautiful and extraordinary human activity that exists. Children must be shown that it is possible. That of Bustric is a palpable example, which is seen because in front of everyone. The narration, even if at times it is complex, is always resolved with inventiveness and simplicity, that simplicity that comes from the study and the overcoming of useless frills and decorations. You go straight to the heart of things, no need expensive and difficult scenes. Bustric shows us that if one frees the mind and with it the imagination and gives space to the game, everything can be represented; "Imaginary planets ... Impossible characters ... all "The public is always willing to believe and enter the actor's game. The theater said Borghes is "A voluntary suspension of disbelief" ... Children have this extraordinary innate ability, still available, for them it is quite natural to let go to the game, just waiting to be stimulated. Of course you should not let them down, it would be fatal. Promises must always be kept. "A little boy asked me one day: how do you make spells? I told him that he wanted the magic dust and he then became very serious and as if he had made an exceptional discovery he asked me: Is the dust of my house ok too? !! "

Beatles English Suites

Beatles_01_02.jpg


Reworking the most beautiful Beatles songs, a kaleidoscope of magical melodies

Duo Biondi Brunialti:  piano duo
Maurizio Ben Omar, Paolo Pasqualin: Percussions
Cesare Grossi: Arrangements

Suite Inglesi is a project where the song is decontextualized from its original world and reworked for the formation of the quartet with two pianos and percussion, just as John Lennon or Paul McCartney could have done if, instead of being pop stars, they had been composers of cultured music or arrangers of jazz formations.

Not a simple exhibition of the songs one after the other, but a creative use of the compositions of Lennon-McCartney disassembled and reassembled, as in the reconstruction of a puzzle, and enriched by the various tonal possibilities of this staff.

Unlike what very often happens, that is when classical music becomes light, this time they are light compositions to be expressed by classical harmonies, in a new dimension that most probably would have liked Luciano Berio, a great admirer of the Beatles.

Nuvolo and music

Of and with Bustric

Duo Biondi Brunialti:  piano duo
Bustric: Mime action, magic, transformation

A fantasy show, a sign of hope. The cool breath of a winter morning.
"My name is Nuvolo. Even when I'm in a good mood like today, I can say I'm calm.”
Nuvolo, a character who comes from afar, works as a music page turner for two pianists. In doing so he gets distracted, allows himself to be lost in the music and ends up leaving the dimension of reality and entering into one of emotion.
Carried by the notes, Nuvolo interprets, follows and anticipates the flow of musical discourse that is transformed through it into word and action, sound and silence. The music envelops Nuvolo as an unknown language, not constrained by the obligation of meaning becomes free thought, a material that can be molded for a continuous play of imagination and reinterpretation.
The purity of his words and the simplicity of his gestures open the doors of feeling. The audience slowly lets the music enter its soul, to feel the flow of life and forget the sense of time. In love with his pianists and their singing, she will never reveal her love that lives in the thousand attentions and inventions that their music gives birth in him.
Nuvolo gives us a profound and complete experience of feeling, reminding each of us of the intimate essence of art, of rediscovering ourselves.

Peintres au Cafè Sonnant

Eight famous painters meet in an imaginary café. Maybe they have met before and maybe they haven’t.

While the local orchestra plays carelessly in the distance. The ninth chair is for the painter to come and the final toast is dedicated to him!

A game of imagination and mirrors that, starting from the canvas space, moves to the temporalization of the music, then returns to the space - time of the video language.
