CORGHI, AZIO - UN PETIT TRAIN DE PLAISIR (CD)


Ballet for 2 Pianos and Percussion on Music of Rossini. Un petit train de plaisir is a ballet score that essentially consists of transcriptions of Rossini for two pianos. Since the actual music is by Rossini it is as melodic and approachable as one might expect; what Corghi has done is to separate the sections with splintered fragments of one piece - the title movement - played on diverse percussion instruments, and heighten the irony and sarcastic wit of the original by recasting it in virtuosic modern terms, while also enhancing the choreographic and spatial possibilities by adding the percussion sections, with the instruments spread around the audience (or across the stereo soudstage in a recording). Bruno Canino, Antonio Ballista (pianos), Les Percussions de Strasbourg. (label info)
