RECENSIONI / REVIEWS

PINOCCHIO

“A story of fables and animals comes to life…”

Märkische Allgemeine

“The Italian composer retells the famous classical story by Carlo Collodi in an entirely fresh fashion, with 57 child actors and five adult roles. Framed by a velvety blue stage, the wooden puppet … experiences, in the truest sense of the word, utterly beautiful adventures… The individual, short scenes enable even smaller children to get involved in the story… The staging never aims for a cheap laugh and avoids sentimentality… Cheerful, totally free of false pathos…”

Mitteldeutsche Zeitung

“The production was an immediate success with the audience (10 minutes of cheers, applause and stamping of feet at the end)… In his gentle music Valtinoni follows a little the great masters of musical fairy tales: there is much of Maurice Ravel in the sparkling piano introduction played against the pizzicato strings and in the brass solos, both sad and beautiful. This music, however, is simpler and more direct, slightly leaning towards Puccini and Bernstein…”

Berliner Zeitung

 

THE SNOW QUEEN

“The new fairy-tale opera has the makings of a crowd-puller. The Italian composer’s music is tonally sensual and catchy… Rhythmically-accented numbers match the children’s urge to keep moving. Counting rhymes and nursery rhymes find their place in the score just as much as the shimmering sound atmosphere which accompanies the gleaming violet castle of ice.”

Berliner Morgenpost

“The first performance was given a tumultuous welcome with cries of bravo and long applause. Italian composer Pierangelo Valtinoni has created a work which is melodic almost throughout. Some of the catchy arias even verge on musicals-style songs. But the musical harmony is also necessary, for the story of Gerda and her friend Kay is sometimes melancholy and sometimes even downright creepy...”

Der Tagesspiegel

“an exemplary children’s opera from Andersen’s fairy-tale”.

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

THE WIZARD OF OZ

"A story about friendship and the feeling of security, about fears and overcoming them. And also about music, which makes everything easier, livelier ... Valtinoni masters the balancing act between pretense and entertainment, between opera and musical. His music is richly varied, rhythmical; at times it sounds a bit like Kurt Weill, and then again like Leonard Bernstein, and yet finds its own sound ... Beautiful melodies, suggestive children’s choruses, passages that makes you tap your toes: there’s plenty of that. And the fact that the wizard is the only one who doesn’t sing is a cute point." 

Susanne Kübler, Tagesanzeiger, 20.11.2016

"La sua partitura ha tutto il fascino di una scrittura che non rinuncia ad alcun elemento di sofisticata ideazione musicale, ma non diversamente da quanto accade per l’allestimento, lo elabora in modo da riuscire a “parlare” a ogni tipo di pubblico. L’insieme è di affascinante forza comunicativa e di implicito virtuosismo, perché al suo interno ogni tipo di ascolto, da quello infantile a quello più consapevole e avvertito, può trovare elementi di interesse e dettagli rivelatori. Emerge un magistero strumentale raffinato e colto, che fa di ogni colore orchestrale un elemento drammaturgico preciso eppure mai banalmente descrittivo. Si impone una vena melodica naturale, screziata degli immancabili profumi swing, che sono tipici del musicista vicentino, che non esclude la complessità della tavolozza armonica, pur nel rassicurante quadro di una scrittura sostanzialmente diatonica. Si afferma una scrittura vocale che passa dal declamato all’arioso con duttilità e semplicità, senza trascurare la complessità delle trame polifoniche delineate dai personaggi e dai cori (di voci bianche e femminili) che si alternano in scena."
