Recensione album

Fabrizio De André passed away in 1999, but that has not prevented — in fact, many would argue, it has spurred — his record labels to release one posthumous collection after another. Sogno Nº 1 is both one of the most interesting offerings, and the most controversial. Instead of repackaging previously available material for the umpteenth time, this record reimagines De André's music in an orchestral setting. These are all new recordings, in which De André's voice is superimposed on tracks performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted and arranged by Geoff Westley, who has plenty of experience with Italian music, as he has worked with Lucio Battisti, Renato Zero, Laura Pausini, and many others. Does the effort here work? Occasionally. There are several problems inherent in this project. First of all, De André spoke more than he sang. This means that his delivery always remains at a constant volume, whereas the arrangements often include sweeping crescendos that cause an awkward contrast between music and voice, very much in evidence on the opener "Preghiera in Gennaio." Secondly, De André was no stranger to the orchestra, as several of his early-'70s concept albums were almost structured as symphonic suites. Since the orchestral arrangements are supposedly what make this project special, why bother, then, with songs that already feature those arrangements in their original version, such as "Laudate Hominem"? Not coincidentally, the most compelling selections of Sogno Nº 1 are those in which a stirringly different version is created, such as the wonderful reading of "Valzer per un Amore," which also features an inspired vocal contribution by Vinicio Capossela. Finally, almost every De André album had a concept behind it — lyrically, but often also musically. Lifting songs off different records for this orchestral patchwork only weakens their original intent. Sogno Nº 1 still dazzles in places ("Hotel Supramonte," "Disamistade"), but the overall feeling is one of an album quickly put together (it was scheduled as a holiday release), and an album that could have greatly profited from better choices; indeed, a better understanding of De André's oeuvre. Most damningly, it may just be exactly the kind of project De André, a notorious perfectionist, would never have approved.

Sorprendente

Magnifiche esecuzioni, orchestrazione eccellente. Con questa nuova veste i brani di Fabrizio de Andrè raccontano ancora una volta la loro più importante qualità: essere senza tempo, costantemente inedite, contemporanee dopo anni ed anni. E chissà per quanti ancora.

mah

fa ribrezzo 'sta cosa… hanno usato la traccia della voce intesa per altri arrangiamenti per suonarci sotto.
Ma io dico, ma non lo poteva cantare tutto Battiato? Sarebbe stato tutto più vitale.

Ci vuole un po' di sensibilità per non comprare 'sto cd.

Via i mercanti dal tempio

Ho cominciato ad acquistare i dischi di Fabrizio De Andrè nel 1966, l'ho ascoltato tre volte dal vivo ricevendo emozioni, piacere ed insegnamenti. Ho tutti i suoi originiali, in vinile d'epoca ed in CD : niente potrà mai superarli, nè per sincera bellezza, nè per grandezza artistica. E' come stampare l'immagine di Fabrizio sulla carta regalo di qualche elettrodomestico da vendere a Natale. Non credevo che mi sarebbe toccato arrivare a questo scempio, un'operazione puramente mercantile, lontana dal carattere di quell'uomo splendido che è stato Fabrizio. L'Opera di questi Artisti non si svende, si conserva nell'animo come una parte di noi, in silenzio e con il massimo rispetto.

With the death of Fabrizio De André from cancer on January 11, 1999, Italy lost one of its most modern singer/songwriters. Inspired by the songwriting of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, De André's songs encompassed Genoese folk songs, French protest/social commentary, beatnik "stream of consciousness" poetry, and the soundtracks of Italian film Westerns. A native of the Genoese province of Liguria, De André was born into a wealthy family. His father's criticism of the fascists who controlled Italy caused...
