GIUSEPPE MARTUCCI – Trio in do magg. op 59, allegro giusto – scherzo – andante con moto – finale
Alfredo Casella’s Trio Sonata in A Major, a delightful reworking of Sammartini’s Notturno, and Giuseppe Martucci’s Trio in C major op. 59 are expressions of the melodic charm and compositional intelligence of two musicians who went to great lengths to promote a new Italian instrumental civilization in an era dominated by melodrama. In both, there is explicit reference to the aesthetic and stylistic horizon of German chamber music-particularly by composers such as Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms-which is resolved in a personal cipher, evident in the pronounced lyrical expression, the Mediterranean sensuality of the melodic design, and the refined, sometimes French-like treatment of harmony. The outcome is an original and fascinating synthesis with an authentic European dimension. It serves as a link to Leonard Bernstein’s famous Trio, a defining moment of 20th-century music, imbued with intensity and humor.
