Davide Anniballi - Red Wine A Maurizia
Delicate piano work imbues Davide Anniballi’s “Red Wine A Maurizia” with a sense of purpose. The piece is broken up into various movements ones that recall both the past as well as the present in classical music. For the ancient quality parts of the work reference Debussy’s impressionistic aura, for the sound appears to be grounded by emotion. On the newer side of influences George Winston’s heartbreakingly beautiful gestures help to further ground the work. Due to his ability to play with tempo, the song’s rhythm feels constantly changing, akin to trying to capture a cool summer breeze.
From the very beginning the song holds the listener’s attention with a series of chords that feel outright joyous. Though there is only a single instrument he manages to burst everything with great textures. On the faster side of things Davide allows the notes to cascade in clusters, adding to the sense of space that he sculpts it. An evolution of the sound occurs in a gracious, sweeping fashion. All of the sound bounces off each other. Without needing to say a single word, a narrative takes shape. Quite a cyclical approach to the sound the way that the piece begins and ends at the same place further adds to the balance that he utilizes. By the final stretch of the work it all seems to be neatly tied together.
“Red Wine A Maurizia” revels in Davide Anniballi’s dexterous skill, with playing that has a technical as well as emotional loveliness to it.
