Massimo Aiello

Tribute To Beethoven: Drum In The Symphony No. 9

(AZZURRA MUSIC, TBPJAB039, 2001)

     (Jazzit nr 22:  2004, May/June issue)      

  Massimo Aiello (drums)

Derived from the namesake show, carried out the first time in 1987 at the Pio X Theatre in Padua, “Tribute To Beethoven” represent an other milestone of  Massimo Aiello’s experimental journey. Beeing already approached to the cultured music before (we remind you his performances on extracts of operas like Rossini’s “Guillaume Tell” and Sravinsky’s “Le Sacre du Printemps” in the late 80’s), the neapolitan musician use this giant of classical repertoire as scenery for his improvisations: the four symphony’s movements are accompanied and breaked by the improvised drum solos. To giving him a base is an appreciable record of the Beethoven’s masterpiece performed by the Camerata Cassovia conducted by Walter Attanasi.
