CON SPIRITO (WITH SPIRIT)

MUZIO CLEMENTI, A FREE MUSICIAN

Marina Rodríguez Brià, piano and comments

Con spirito is a commented recital about the work of this versatile musician, of great importance in the history of the piano.

Since the recording of her album in 1999 dedicated to Muzio Clementi, Marina Rodriguez Bria has been interested in this musician and has travelled to emblematic places of his biography. Also she has continued studying the composer called “the father of the pianoforte”, manufacturer of pianos, editor, harpsichordist, conductor, pianist and musical promoter of 18th-19th centuries.

Marina Rodríguez Brià recently travelled to London to further investigate some aspects of his personality and has just made a recording with some of his works played on a historical pianoforte of his own brand Clementi & Company.

“A factor that remains intact throughout the album is the solid technique displayed by the pianist, who offers versions of rich musicality and technical accuracy.”
