«Champagne!» at the Capriccio Italiano Festival

At the Teatro di Cestello in Florence, a program entirely dedicated to the French composers who contributed to the transition from Romanticism to Modernity: from Debussy to Poulanc, passing through Milhaud and Ravel, of which we propose extracts from the Sonata in G major for violin and piano transcribed by Antonio Aiello for violin and nonetto and performed by him with the soloist of Orchestra Nazionale Artes directed by Andrea Vitello. And what better pairing, if not champagne? The set of evanescent sensations, dreams and surreal emotions in an elusive, almost ethereal picture of France at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

With the Tuscan Chamber Orchestra in Pisa

Started in 2008, the artistic partnership with the Tuscan Chamber Orchestra is now consolidated and extremely prolific. At least once a year Antonio Aiello is regularly invited as a soloist and very often also as a concertmaster or conductor. In the following video you can listen to excerpts from one of the most spectacular concerts born from this union: the Concerto for violin and two orchestras RV582 by Vivaldi «Per la S.S.Assunzione di M.V.», performed in June 2016 at the Chiesa di Santa Caterina d'Alessandria in Pisa.

Lachner for FerraraMusica

Since his youth has always dedicated himself with particular preference to chamber music in all its forms, from the classic string quartet or with piano to the most original settings, as septet, octet and even nonet, as you can listen to in the following video, containing extracts of Franz Lachner's Nonet performed in February 2020 at the Teatro Comunale «Claudio Abbado» in Ferrara.

An organ in the Swiss Alps

Antonio Aiello can boast a rather substantial repertoire of Sonatas for violin and piano and over the years he has performed in duo with internationally renowned pianists, such as Paolo Vergari e Igor Longato. However, a fortuitous meeting after many years with the organist Matteo Venturini provided the starting point to give life to a new original project exploiting the instrumental virtuosity of both: playing together a repertoire that normally would not be for violin and organ, as the «Praeludium und Allegro» by Kreisler, the famous «Ciaccona» by Bach with Schumann accompaniment or the «Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso» Op.28 by Saint-Saëns, of which we propose extracts of the concert held in September 2019 at the Evangelische Dorfkirche in Samedan, an enchanting location near St. Moritz at 1721m above sea level in the Swiss Alps.
