Rivista "Codice 602"
Periodical by the Instituto Superiore di Studi Musicali "Luigi Boccherini"
The 2013 Edition is dedicated to the most relevant musical anniversaries of the year.
Seven celebrated scholars have contributed to this homage:
Guido Salvetti suggests a new reading of the Journal de mes mélodies by Francis Poulenc (1899-1963); Marco Moiraghi investigates the relationship between the music of Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) and the topic of war; Alessandro Solbiati examines the Terzo Quartetto per archi - Third String Quartet by Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) as if it was a sudden revival of chamber music with interesting timbres and instruments; Fulvio Venturi illustrates the creative path which led to Parisina, fascinating opera with a libretto of Gabriele D’Annunzio (1863-1938) and music by Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945); includes a stimulating essay by Gabriella Biagi Ravenni (for the section Music Studies in Lucca) with its investigation on the early staging of operas by Verdi at the Teatro del Giglio, and a text by Donato Sansone about folk instruments such as bagpipes, used by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) in his melodramatic orchestrations.
The periodical features a tribute to the german composer Richard Wagner (1813-1883) by Marco Brighenti, who studies the influence of Shopenhauer in Wagner's aesthetic.
The Thesis section is dedicated to a study by Giovanni Giannini, who reveals that even the brilliant Chopin was using some previous stylistic models such as the Kalkbrenner in his first Concerto for piano and orchestra.
Finally, a tribute to Michele Puccini (1813-1864), Giacomo's father, to celebrate his second centenary of his death.
