Joy, beautiful splendour of gods! Have I heard well? There’s someone wich plays drums on the Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony? He get up with the titan’s fist and clash with a monument of western culture, for degrade it to a festival’s attraction level?

No, really! This performance of Massimo Aiello, wich perform since the 1987 in places, theatres, churches, school and festivals, is original and full of artistic value. Aiello doesn’t clash with the opera, but he perform into the orchestral structure, like they would been composed together since the beginning. In all the orchestral operas is usual to write out a piano’ summary for have quickly a total view of  a score’s harmonic essence. Aiello’s work is valid like a drum’ summary of this symphony. The dramatic development is recognizable like in an altimetric profile on the topographics’ maps. Aiello never play on close-up, he treat the Beethoven’s Ninth with respect. It’s surprising above all how he know every millimetre of the score. At moments he give to the opera a new point of view, like in the fourth part, the “Ode To Joy”, who is well-known as “Joy, beautiful splendour of gods”, he provide the hymn with jazz rhythms, almost break-beat, that are surprisingly suitable. The last Beethoven’s symphony was, since the beginning, an opera that climb over the boundaries of its genre. A word that was in fashion in that period was the “absolute” music, and this term ws used to indicate only a pure instrumental music. The symphony is the maximum form of this ideal. The revolutionary Beethoven did insert singers in a symphony. The musical critics of that period was upseted; if this would be profitable, Aiello grasps this non-orthodox line, illustrating the symphony as an open masterpiece and extending it with his contribution.

The result is kitsch not at all. Worthy to be discovered!
