Viaggio al Centro del Violino, first solo album by Emanuele Parrini (Rudi Records)
(Published: September 21, 2013)

Viaggio al Centro del Violino
by Emanuele Parrini

Suite for Solo Violin,
Emanuele Parrini

Suite In Due
Emanuele Parrini, violin
Paolo Botti, viola

RRJ1015 Rudi Records 2013


"We must admit it: the title is challenging, yet when you listen to the suite of the same name you understand that this is exactly what Emanuele Parrini does. And let us also admit that a disc of only violin music (although the second part offers us an irresistible duo between violin and viola) is something that even experienced professionals would not accept. Yet we can claim that the challenge is won. Emanuele Parrini does this: he goes to the heart of the violin, he goes to its very nature of wood, metal and horsehair and he explores it, he goes through it, he reveals it, he is seduced and enchanted by it, he takes up the challenge without getting entangled and trapped in self-congratulatory virtuosity. In this disc we hear Parrini's passion for the masters of jazz who had to invent a vocabulary and almost a new grammar for this instrument, from Stuff Smith to Billy Bang and above all to Leroy Jenkins, to whom the Requiem della Suite is dedicated; and there is the dedication to Renato Geremia (his predecessor in the Italian Instabile Orchestra) who succeeded in inventing a new way to approach an instrument encumbered with such an onerous classical tradition. This same tradition surfaces frequently in certain passages with effects not so very different from those of some contemporary music; the difference is however in the intentions, the attitude and the aptitude according to what Cecil Taylor told A.B. Spellman fifty years ago: ("He would never get emotionally involved in it; and dig, that's the word, they don't want to get involved with music. It's a theory, it's a mental exercise in which the body is there as an attribute to complement that exercise. The body is in no way supposed to get involved in it"). There you have it: Parrini is totally involved, he is inside the violin, his music communicates an immediate feeling of presence, of immanence, of necessary physicality. He sounds as if he is playing to nourish himself and to offer the same joy to others. Also playful, entertaining and vibrant is the duet with Paolo Botti, comrade, friend, colleague; their unisono in the themes tell of a common sensibility, a shared passion, a similar approach and an infinite love of jazz."
Pino Saulo
