Stefano Pastor

Read "Stefano Pastor" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

1. Ludwig van Beethoven, Concerto per violino e orchestra op. 61 in RE maggiore, David Oistrakh, André Cluytens, French National Radio Orchestra (EMI, 1959). Da tempo sono tornato a frequentare il repertorio violinistico di matrice euro-colta dopo anni di indagine sull'improvvisazione. L'occasione è resa maggiormente suggestiva dal fatto di avvalermi di un violino di ...

Stefano Leonardi, Stefano Pastor, Fridolin Blumer, Heinz Geisser: Conversations about Thomas Chapin

Read "Conversations about Thomas Chapin" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il dato che più risalta all'ascolto di questo CD è la densità: densità espressiva, di ispirazione, timbrica, dialogica, comunicativa. Una densità in parte diversa da quella che caratterizza la musica di Thomas Chapin, lo straordinario artista al quale questo lavoro è rivolto con grande affetto e adesione emotiva. La densità di Chapin è estroversa, travolgente, legata ...

Stefano Leonardi / Stefano Pastor / Fridolin Blumer / Heinz Geisser: Conversations about Thomas Chapin

Read "Conversations about Thomas Chapin" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

American saxophonist and flautist Thomas Chapin left the planet too soon, on February 13th, 1998 after a year-long battle with leukemia, when he was only forty years old. His inspiring spirit lives on, as the heartfelt tribute by Italian flautist Stefano Leonardi proves. Leonardi doesn't attempt to recreate the sorely missed Chapin's sound, or the unique, ...

Stefano Pastor & Charlotte Hug: Paragon D'archi

Read "Paragon D'archi" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The title of the debut duo album of Swiss viola player and vocalist Charlotte Hug and Italian violinist Stefano Pastor is symbolic and insightful. Archi in Italian means bows, as the ones used for the string instruments of Hug and Pastor, but also arches, as in architectural structures. Yet the spectacular, improvised duets of these two ...

Stefano Pastor: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nell'ormai folta produzione discografica di Stefano Pastor, Songs per molti aspetti si ricollega a Chants edito nel 2009, le cui incisioni, sempre in solo, risalivano prevalentemente al settembre 2006. Tutti i brani di Songs sono stati invece registrati nel corso del 2010, salvo “Duke Ellington's Sound of Love" che appartiene alla medesima seduta del 2006. Nelle ...

Stefano Pastor: Songs

Read "Songs" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Songs is virtuoso Italian violinist Stefano Pastor's attempt to explore song form through his solo violin, aided only by different sound processors and his voice--feeling the sound of his voice as well as his violin physically, inside his body, and directly, without anything but his own body, as Pastor writes in the liner notes.

Stefano Pastor - Ari Poutiainen: North South Dial

Read "North South Dial" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Ancora per la SLAM Stefano Pastor firma un altro piccolo capolavoro di improvvisazione violinistica. Questa volta assieme al collega finlandese trentanovenne Ari Poutiainen, a lui del tutto omologo sia per levatura artistica che per approccio estetico. I due, conosciutisi grazie a Anthony Barnett, esperto del violino jazz ed autore delle note di copertina del disco, si ...
