Abstract:
The repertoire chosen for this concert aims to explore the range of sound capabilities of the cello, as well as present important composers of the traditional repertoire for the instrument. These are demanding pieces, as they require the performer to explore different techniques for their ideal interpretation. Besides the renowned composers J. S. Bach and J. Brahms, three important Latin American composers were part of this program, properly representing the musical style of their countries. The master of Argentinean tango A. Piazzolla and the versatile Brazilian composers H. Villa-Lobos and C. Guarnieri all had in common the experience of living and working temporarily in the USA and in Paris. They all met other important composers and musicians who contributed to make their music internationally recognized. All the composers chosen for this concert dedicated a reasonable time of their lives to write music for the cello: J. S. Bach composed the first works ever written for this instrument (the six suites for unaccompanied cello were all written between 1717 and 1723, when Bach served as a Kapellmeister in Cöthen); J. Brahms composed two sonatas for cello and piano, and transcribed his Violin Sonata Op. 78 to cello, besides various chamber music works (trios, quartets, quintets and sextets) where the cello always plays a very important character; C. Guarnieri composed three sonatas, two cantilenas, and Ponteio e Dansa, all for cello and piano; H. Villa-Lobos wrote sonatas, concertos, and several short pieces for cello and piano in various styles, besides two Bachianas Brasileiras for Cello Ensemble, and several chamber music works where the cello is extremely important; finally, A. Piazzolla only wrote one piece specifically for cello and piano, but his style of tango was very much based on his passion for chamber music. Through José Bragato (the cellist of his group Nuevo Tango) and also his friendship with A. Ginastera, whose wife was an excellent cellist, Piazzolla found his inspiration. His works were very important to debut the cello in popular music. Finally, all these composers are somehow related to each other, and certainly J. S. Bach influenced all the others in some level. J. Brahms studied deeply the works of earlier composers (including Bach as one of his favorites) and made it clear in his compositions. Both H. Villa-Lobos and A. Piazzolla were admirers of Bach (Villa-Lobos wrote nine Bachianas Brasileiras among other works to show his admiration), and C. Guarnieri was considered by some musicologists as the Brazilian Brahms, due to some compositional characteristics that show a certain similarity with the way Brahms applied the harmonic aspect of his compositions.
