PROJECTS / AS BAND LEADER & CO-LEADER

ESSENTIAL LINES (2019)

The “Essential lines” are the essential lines of the “times”, both chronological and musical. Each composition, while recounting a different idea, turns out to be a moment of insertion between these two elements. Time and musical expressiveness lead us to a different dimension and a perception of “flowing”.

OVERLAYS (2018)

The album was previewed by many musicians who expressed great approval in their opinions and thoughts, among others: Gianluigi Trovesi, Claudio Fasoli, Javier Girotto, Stefano Zenni, Tino Tracanna, Ben Golberg, Dave Douglas, Bruce Ackley, Jon Raskin, Jim Hartog.

MUSIC UNLEASHED

The current expressive form of the ensemble has been shaped over the years through artistic development made possible thanks to attentive musical experience.

NOVOTONO (2007)

Sound and silence, understood as primary elements in a journey of seeking and exploration, are in themselves the essence of an expressive journey through which communication of personal emotional comes into play, giving life to the moment of creation.

DIVERTIMENTI & NOTTURNI (1992)

Martesana Quartet (clarinetti e corni di bassetto), Gloria Banditelli (mezzosoprano), Marinella Pennicchi (soprano).

FOUR CLARINETS (1990)

QUARTETTO MARTESANA
Ivano Brambilla clarinetto – Andrea Mandelli (clarinetto, clarinetto piccolo) – Andrea Ferrari (clarinetto, corno di bassetto) – Adalberto Ferrari (clarinetto basso).

ARIOSO ENSEMBLE

The fascination for basset horn: a warm and all-enveloping timbre; music written simply to fill the pleasant succession of days in the courts of the eighteenth century; here are the ingredients for a concerto that brings us back to the times of Mozart.

RAYMOND SCOTT MUSIC
