'SPIRIT OF A SONATA': CHOSEN AFFINITIES FOR GUITAR

“Is there a way to give new meaning to the word interpretation? There is a possible way, if we can imagine a score not holding the only key to what the music can convey, but consider it just one of music’s many manifestations intended by the composer; if we can imagine a piece able to free itself from the form dictated by the score and, maintaining its genius, able to recreate itself. What matters is capturing the spirit of a composer, or a composition, and its resonance, which can then differ from the composer’s version, since it would have reached the same creative realm”.

Pierluigi Potalivo

"interpretation"という言葉の意義とは何だろうか。
曲から発せられる言葉をありのままに解釈するのではなく、編曲という形で作曲者の概念を活かすならばどうだろう。
大切なことは、作曲者、そして、その曲の真意を捉えること。
楽譜という形式から離れた欠片が、その本質を携えたまま生まれ変わる。
その響きは作曲者の解釈とは違うかもしれない。しかし、同一の世界から現れ出でたものには違いないだろう。

Pierluigi Potalivo

有没有一种方式,可以重新诠释"诠释"呢?诚然!如果我们可以仅把乐谱视为作者所要表现的众多情感之一,而不是音乐所能传达的全部;如果我们可以把一支曲子从乐谱繁复的形式中抽离,让他带了灵魂,重获新生。
诠释"诠释"关键,在于捕捉到作者心灵的跃动,这跃动以乐谱的形式呈现,在不同的时间与空间,一次次期待着共鸣。且行且住,相涨相消,回声已经不是原声,但他们源自同一个创造。

BIOGRAPHY

Pierluigi Potalivo was born in 1972 in Rome, where he studied under Mr. Sergio Notaro, one of the finest italian pupils of Andrés Segovia, and was awarded his Diploma at the St Cecilia Conservatoire. The performing career he subsequently launched has led to appearances in Europe and US, as well as various performances of his own compositions for guitar.

REVIEWS

“..It is common to find guitar players who are technically superior but lack heart, and players who are all heart but lack the technical chops to truly excel are even more common. Pierluigi Potalivo has taken the technical skill learned over years of study and melded it with a fine ear and an empathic sensibilità..the result is the wisdom of the masters blended with the inspiration of the life-long student who reveres those who came before but is advanced enough to hold his place in conversation with legends. Spirito di una Sonata is a musical dialectic; a Socratic debate where illumination is achieved”.

Review by Wildy Haskell

“..a unique and highly personable interpretation of Giuliani..a reworking of the piece that is meant to pay tribute to the composer as much as bring the work into a modern context. Potalivo possesses impeccable technique.. and advanced melodic interpretation.. that really make this album stand out among the crowded classical guitar library. Potalivo takes a risk with his interpretations on this album, and manages to succeed on every level”.

Review by Matt Warnock, Executive Director of the WIU Guitar Festival

"..an itinerary that is stimulating, concluded with a smiling page in the fashion of parody (Fernando Sor mocks his own “ways”, played with gusto and elegance, qualities that predominate throughout the programme".

Review by musicologist Claudio Bolzan, in the MUSICA magazine.
