"Nothing testamentary, however, in her interpretation, but a spontaneity, a radiant joy that makes you forget about the permanent split of the hands, the tough mental gymnastic of score reading and memorisation."

"The playing of Vanessa Benelli Mosell is full of magnificent prodigality."

- Gilles Macassar, Télérama

Vanessa Benelli Mosell presents PLEYEL PIANO designed by PEUGEOT DESIGN LAB

 

Vanessa Benelli Mosell presents a new avant-garde piano which was designed exclusively for Pleyel Piano by the Peugeot Design Lab.

The Peugeot Design Lab launched in 2012 in Paris with the objective to design non-automotive products that change the conceptions of the object. They approached Pleyel Pianos to be their first partners and together they created a piano, which has the potential to revolutionise the world of piano manufacturing. The piano has been designed and built to achieve unprecedented musical quality. Its major innovation is the lowering of the chord mechanism to line up perfectly with the keyboard. The pianist can hear the sound of the instrument with incomparable precision. And, at the same time, the audience can see the pianist playing from every conceivable angle.

UNA SCUOLA DI VITA PRIMA CHE DI MUSICA

 

"È una storia di formazione à la russe quella di Vanessa Benelli Mosell, pianista italiana dal talento unanimamente riconosciuto.Cresciuta all’Accademia Pianistica di Imola, prima di lanciarsi in una carriera internazionale la bella musicista, oggi ventiseienne,aveva trovato la sua dimensione educativa ideale nella Federazione. Infatti, dal 2007 al 2010 ha frequentato il celebre conservatorio Cajkovskij di Mosca.

 

È difficile accedervi e ambientarsi per un allievo straniero?

 

Sono stata invitata al conservatorio dal professor Mikhail Voskresenskij, incontrato a Parigi. Avevo sempre provato grande fascinazione per la scuola russa e accolsi l’invito con entusiasmo. Ho dovuto superare una serie di prove, e all'inizio ho patito però l’ostacolo della lingua, il collegio spartano, la solitudine; volevo quasi tornare in Italia, finché mi sono convinta che quella era lamia scuola. Così ho imparato il russo, divenendo amica di tutti e facendo del conservatorio la mia famiglia artistica. Gli amici di allora sono anche quelli di oggi.

 

Ha avuto l’impressione di un trattamento diverso per gli allievi stranieri rispetto ai russi?

 

Qualcuno mi aveva parlato di una minore considerazione nei nostri confronti, ma io non ho mai avuto questa sensazione. Al contrario, mi sono sempre sentita privilegiata, immaginando che ilmio professore tenesse particolarmente a me. Nella mia classe ero l’unica italiana (tre considerando tutto il conservatorio).

 

Consiglierebbe a un italiano di studiare in uno dei grandi conservatori russi?

 

Certo, a patto che lo spirito non sia quello di vivere un’avventura, ma di immergersi totalmente nella musica. In questo mi sono ispirata ai russi, al modo monacale in cui vivono la musica.

 

Come definirebbe il metodo degli insegnanti russi?

 

I miei, diversi per personalità, erano accomunati da un metodo molto concreto. Quasi fisico: in Germania, a 16 anni, la mia prima insegnante russa, Dina Yoffe, metteva la sua sedia accanto a me per spronarmi senza barriere, voleva che toccassi la sua mano per capire il movimento. Ho avuto insegnanti sinceri, che mi hanno dato consigli e indicato strategie di cui ho sempre beneficiato, pur capendoli magari anni dopo.

 

Che lascito conserva dello studio?

 

Quella russa è la mia scuola, ne faccio parte, mi ha lasciato quello che sono oggi."

Concert REVIEW Smolensk Filarmonia

Read the review (in russian) of Vanessa's solo recital at the Philharmonic Hall in Smolensk on May 31st, 2014 at Glinka Festival.

 

On GorodNews:

"До сегодняшнего дня нельзя было представить, что музыка Ференца Листа может звучать элегантно. Элегантно, утончённо, изысканно - именно эти эпитеты точно описывают то, как прозвучали «Венгерские рапсодии» Листа со сцены смоленской филармонии в исполнении итальянской пианистки Ванессы Бенелли Мозель. Женственность и красота этой талантливой девушки сочетаются с колоссальным упорством и внутренней силой. Произведения, исполненные ею одни из самых технически сложных в мировой музыке. Получился своего рода вечер трёх культур: венгерской, польской и русской.

 

Красота польского национального музыкального колорита воплотилась в Балладе №4 f-moll Фредерика Шопена. Основная тема четырёх шопеновских баллад - это тема Родины, тоски по ней. 4-я баллада написана Шопеном на переходе к позднему периоду творческого пути композитора. В ней больше философской глубины, чем мелодраматизма, присущего предшествующим трём балладам. Ванессе удалось своим исполнением передать именно эту интимность, сокровенность размышлений Шопена. Было ощущение, что публика затаила дыхание, из зала не раздавалось ни звука. Слушатели боялись нарушить течение идеальной музыки. Сама пианистка за весь концерт не произнесла ни слова. Зал подолгу рукоплескал в перерывах между произведениями. Ванесса немного смущённо улыбалась в ответ."

 

Три момента из сюиты «Петрушка» Игоря Стравинского прозвучали именно ПО-РУССКИ. Широко, открыто, с молодецкой удалью. Передать дух русской культуры настолько точно пианистке удалось не случайно - Ванесса Бенелли Мозель училась у русских выдающихся пианистов Михаила Воскресенского в Московской консерватории и у Дмитрия Алексеева в Королевском музыкальном колледже в Лондоне. На самом динамичном моменте сюиты за окном были слышны раскаты грома, которые стали идеальным сопровождением такого сильного выступления и прекрасно вписались в музыкальную фактуру Стравинского."

Fin da piccola, più volte, mi domandavano se fossimo parenti ed io sempre rispondevo di no, ma con la speranza di conoscere il grande Maestro di persona un giorno, chissà! Un sogno che si è avverato ieri. Ricambio con affetto, Nonno Ugo e ancora grazie per la Sua grande generosità. A presto, ancora sul palco!

Review on Classic Voice - September 2013

Italian Language:

Un programma lisztiano piuttosto erratico, nella stesso modo di accostare pagine ultranote ad altre più rare, come il Galop Russe da Bulhakov, virato soprattutto su un tipo di virtuosismo di velocità e di eleganza piuttosto che di forza, tratti che la giovane interprete possiede e gestisce con evidente naturalezza. Il suo discorrere sulla tastiera è infatti piacevolmente duttile, libero da sovraccarichi e da compiacimenti, segno di una musicalità che ha trovato già in giovanissima età occasioni per manifestarsi, ancor prima di arricchire la propria esperienza con confronti didattici significativi, dall’Accademia di Imola con Franco Scala, quindi al Conservatorio di Mosca e al londinese Royal College of Music. Un altro segnale piuttosto singolare dell’ampiezza di visuale entro cui si muove la Benelli Mosell è offerto dall’incontro avuto nel 2006 con Stockhausen di cui registrò per Radio3 a corredo di un documentario curato da Mario Bortolotto i primi quattro Klavierstücke, con l’entusiastico consenso del compositore che la invitò a studiare con lui in Germania, avendo compreso con quale intelligenza musicale la giovane aveva saputo penetrare entro la labirintica rete di quelle pagine regolate da una “serialità” estrema nel suo radicalismo, impresa resa ancor più ardua per ogni interprete dalla prescrizione del compositore di eseguire ognuno dei quattro brani - come talora faceva Schumann -“il più presto possibile”, che la nostra interprete mostra di affrontare con naturale dedizione.

Interview on RussiaOggi - Musica, l'italiana che riuscì a sedurre la Russia

Italian Language:

 @ russiaoggi.it di Valentina Bonelli

In attesa del suo prossimo ritorno a Mosca, dove ha studiato al Conservatorio Tchaikovsky affermandosi come una delle migliori interpreti internazionali, Vanessa Benelli Mosell racconta il suo amore per la terra degli zar e il suo speciale rapporto con Yuri Bashmet

 

 Musica, l’italiana che riuscì a sedurre la Russia

A soli 25 anni Vanessa Benelli Mosell è considerata una delle interpreti di maggior successo nel panorama musicale internazionale. Ha studiato in Russia a fianco dei più grandi musicisti dell'Est (Foto: Barbara Rigon / Ufficio Stampa)

In Russia si è guadagnata l’aggettivo “nasha” (nostra) la pianista italiana Vanessa Benelli Mosell, perfezionatasi al Conservatorio Tchaikovsky di Mosca, incline per repertorio e sensibilità alla tradizione musicale russa. Se a venticinque anni, dopo un’infanzia da bambina prodigio, è tra le interpreti internazionali più virtuose e intense, l’artista dalla bellezza rinascimentale ammette di dovere tutto all’insegnamento di grandi professori russi, dei quali è stata e continua ad essere allieva prediletta.

“Iniziai a 15 anni, in Germania, a studiare con un’insegnante russa, Dina Yose. Dico sempre che è stata lei a insegnarmi a suonare - nonostante le mie basi fossero molto solide dopo il diploma all’Accademia pianistica di Imola - perché mi ha aperto un mondo: quello della scuola russa. Mi ha completamente cambiata: nel modo di suonare, di concepire la musica, di affrontare il palco e le relazioni con gli altri musicisti. In seguito incontrai Mikhail Voskresensky, a Parigi, durante una masterclass al termine della quale mi invitò a studiare con lui a Mosca, al Conservatorio Tchaikovsky, dove rimasi per tre anni, dal 2007 al 2010. Il nostro rapporto è continuato con masterclass e corsi estivi, fino ad oggi.”

Come si è adattata alla vita a Mosca, arrivandovi da straniera a 19 anni?

“Non è stato facile: non sapevo una parola di russo, non conoscevo nessuno, non avevo ancora una casa e alloggiavo nel dormitorio. Mi sentivo sola e non era facile comunicare con i miei genitori in Italia. Ma da subito, nella quotidianità, ho avvertito un sentimento di grande solidarietà da parte dei russi. In pochi mesi ho imparato il russo e la vita è diventata più facile. Mosca non è una città semplice, ma una volta ambientata mi ci sono molto legata, forse proprio per le difficoltà superate. Si dice: all’inizio piangi perché devi andare, poi perché devi partire. A me è successa la stessa cosa.”

 

Che ricordi musicali ha di quegli anni?

“Come allieva del Conservatorio ho suonato in molte sale a Mosca: nella Sala Rachmaninov, nella Sala piccola e nella Sala bianca del Conservatorio, e al Museo Pushkin il pianoforte scelto da Richter. Ho sempre trovato un pubblico speciale: per i russi la musica è una religione, vanno a tutti i concerti, seguono ogni artista e soprattutto tifano per i loro musicisti, anche per gli stranieri che studiano al Conservatorio di Mosca, considerati loro. Dicono “nash”: il nostro artista, il nostro pianista, il nostro studente: anche per me ho sentito varie volte usare questo aggettivo ed è stato molto toccante.”

Prossimi concerti

Venerdì 30 agosto, Vittorio Veneto, Festival Musicale Italia Russia, Teatro Da Ponte: Vanessa Benelli Mosell pianoforte; Yuri Bashmet viola; Massimo Quarta violino; Aleksandr Buzlov violoncello; mercoledì 4 settembre 2013: Portoferraio, Elba Festival, Teatro dei Vigilanti, I Solisti di Mosca, Yuri Bashmet direttore, Vanessa Benelli Mosell pianoforte; sabato 7 settembre 2013, Portoferraio, Elba Festival, Teatro dei Vigilanti, Vanessa Benelli Mosell pianoforte, Yuri Bashmet viola; Alena Baeva violino; Aleksandr Buzlov violoncello

Da allora è indirizzata verso il repertorio russo?

“Dicono che per suonare bene il repertorio russo si debba anche parlare la lingua russa. Non so se sia vero, però credo che vivere in Russia, frequentare lo stesso Conservatorio dove hanno studiato Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Prokofev, immerga nell’eredità della tradizione musicale russa. Sì, sono indirizzata verso il repertorio russo, che continuo ad ampliare.”

Mantiene legami con gli allievi e gli artisti russi conosciuti a Mosca?

“Legami stretti: i miei amici oggi sono prevalentemente russi perché il Conservatorio è stata la mia famiglia, conoscevo praticamente tutti! Così la mia casa al mare in Italia è sempre piena di ospiti russi: colleghi e insegnanti. Inoltre continuai a studiare con un insegnante russo del Conservatorio di Mosca anche a Londra, al Royal College of Music: pure là le lezioni si tenevano in russo e molti studenti erano russi. Perciò anche i miei migliori amici di Londra sono russi.”

 

Anche il celebre violista Yuri Bashmet è stato importante per la sua carriera.

“L’incontro avvenne al premio che al festival musicale dell’isola d’Elba, da lui fondato, Yuri Bashmet volle assegnarmi nel 2004. È una persona molto importante per la mia formazione: incontrarlo così giovane è stata un’ispirazione per me, perché è un musicista grandissimo, un artista che vive per la musica. Ho suonato varie volte al suo festival, mi ha invitata in tournée con i suoi Solisti di Mosca e nuovi concerti ci aspettano nei prossimi giorni in Italia.”

 

È più tornata in Russia?

“Ancora no, ma penso accadrà nel gennaio 2014, finalmente, dopo tre anni, perché ci sono nuovi progetti in corso di definizione. Avevo lasciato due valigie nel mio vecchio appartamento: un buon auspicio per tornare.”

Come vorrebbe tornarci?

“Il mio sogno è suonare con Yuri Bashmet a Mosca, nella Sala Tchaikovsky e nella Sala Grande del Conservatorio. Sapevo che è considerato una rockstar in Russia, ma ho visto con i miei occhi che quando suona a Mosca si mobilita tutta la città: la televisione, la radio, il Presidente viene a sentirlo. Ecco, vorrei tornarci con lui.”

Review on MUSICA Magazine - July 2013

Italian Language:

La ventitreenne Vanessa Benelli Mosell propone un programma lisztiano, in cui non ci si può tirare indietro e bisogna mostrare i muscoli. Brani in cui sono rappresentati diversi tipi di danze che hanno nell'incisività ritmica il loro comune denominatore. Ed in questo la nostra pianista supera a pieni voti la prova. Esecuzioni incisive, scattanti quanto basta, lucide ed emotivamente controllate ci ristituiscono un Liszt ordinato e preciso senza fastidiosi eccessi e cavalcate sfrenate. Il Valse Impromptu possiede un suono luminoso e netto, forse troppo, senza chiaroscuri che ne accentuerebbero l'intrenseco fascino musicale. Il Capriccio alla Turca, tratto dalle beethoveniane Rovine di Atene, possiede sì, all'inizio, un ghigno quasi sarcastico che sa di presa in giro, ma poi scivola via, correttamente, ma senza sobbalzi. Del gruppo di quattro Rapsodie Ungheresi proposte, emerge la decima. Il Sogno d'amore è da lodare per il tono piuttosto austero per i nostri tempi, scevro com'è da seduzioni dolciastre. Gli ultimi tre brani, che potremmo definire da circo per intreseche peculiarità strutturale e compositive, vengono rese col piglio giusto. Convincente il gioioso senso ludico della Galop Russe, ordinatoe lineare il moto perpetuo della Tarantella, La Danza così come l'andamento talvolta un po' guardingo, del Grand Galop Chromatique.

Brescia Oggi CD Review | Vanessa Benelli Mosell

Il «Valse Impromptu» non è che il primo brano di questo ampio programma tutto dedicato a Franz Liszt e che vede questa giovane pianista, originaria di Prato e già nota al pubblico per aver interpretato i «Klavierstücke» di Karlheinz Stockhausen, impegnata nell'interpretazione del «Capriccio alla turca» su temi delle Rovine di Atene di Beethoven, nel celebre Studio da concerto «La Leggerezza» e soprattutto in quattro delle sue Rapsodie Ungheresi. Il tema della danza non poteva mancare, con il «Grand Gaolp cromatique» e il «Galop russe» come il notissimo e struggente Liebestraum, il «Sogno d'amore». Interprete: Vanessa Benelli Mosell.

CD Review - Classical Net: Franz Liszt / Benelli Mosell

Maurizio Pollini – move over! Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell (b. 1987), although a prizewinner in a few important competitions, apparently hasn't won a major competition outright. That's rather amazing because she possesses a rare talent, but this kind of talent doesn't need a first prize in Moscow or Warsaw or Texas to ride to fame! This is her second recording. I missed her first, which contained sonatas by Prokofiev, Haydn and Scriabin, and Liszt's Rhapsodie Espagnole (Brilliant Classics 94209). I did manage to hear excerpts from that recital disc and was greatly impressed.

 

On this new disc Benelli Mosell plays with an all-encompassing technique and has the interpretive acumen of a seasoned master, the latter quality showing through despite her choice of mostly lighter and virtuosic repertory here. Iconic French pianist Pascal Rogé, with whom Benelli Mosell debuted in duo-piano repertory at age eleven, described her as the "most natural talent I have ever encountered in my entire life..." Listening to this disc, it's easy to see why he heaped such lavish praise on her.

 

Benelli Mosell captures the charm and elegance of the Chopinesque Valse Impromptu, giving the piece a lightness and infectious effervescence in her phrasing and well-judged dynamics. The Capriccio alla Turca is a virtuosic takeoff on themes from Beethoven's Ruins of Athens. It's a colorful piece, full of high spirits and colorful dazzle, and Benelli Mosell shortchanges no aspect of the work's glitter and virtuosity, while showing that such light music can actually offer substantive enjoyment.

 

La Leggierezza is another work that, while sounding like Liszt, has much of the sound world of Chopin about it. Benelli Mosell deftly points up the kinship between the two composers' styles, while storming the heights in the middle section. The four Hungarian Rhapsodies here sound far less episodic than is often the case, and more like the delightful and well-crafted folk-inspired showpieces that Liszt intended. For sheer thrills try the final section of #6, where Benelli Mosell plays those rapid-fire repeating octaves with such precision, lightness and awesome speed.

 

She delivers Liebestraum #3 with utter conviction, not in any way spurning the obviously sentimental character of the music. The last three pieces are light and lively works, with the Rossini-sourced La Danza and the Grand Galop Chromatique showcasing Benelli Mosell's considerable technical skills. While this Liszt recital features little music of depth, those interested in the composer's lighter and more colorful works will find this disc a real delight. True, the fare offered here is just the kind that Liszt detractors cite to make their case against the composer, but the music is unpretentious, imaginative and brimming with energy and brilliant color. The sound reproduction is clear and powerful.

Another Excellent Review on The New Liszt Album on MusicWeb International

"After her excellent recent debut CD entitled 'Virtuoso Piano Music' (see review), young Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell has returned almost immediately to the studio for Brilliant Classics for this all-Liszt follow-up.

 

Pianistically, this recording is every bit as thrilling as the first. Benelli Mosell's sculptured programme - styled after a Liszt recital - surrounds four of the Hungarian Rhapsodies with a miscellany of other pieces, both 'light' and virtuosic. What is particularly interesting about the works Benelli Mosell has chosen is, on the one hand, the fact that they all come from Liszt's earlier years, and on the other, that none of the four Rhapsodies is the Second! The point is that Benelli Mosell could easily have followed the route favoured by every big-label 'superstar', which is to play Liszt's original No.2 and include a meretricious cadenza, or more usually to play the over-the-top arrangement vulgarised - in more senses than one - by Vladimir Horowitz. Instead she has elected not to spotlight directly her own personal brilliance, but rather to be a conduit for Liszt. In an online interview in Italian last year she explained how she had come to understand - from her study with Stockhausen of his Klavierstücke, no less - that the pianist's role is to communicate the composer's ideas to audiences, not his or her own.

 

Benelli Mosell has already demonstrated, in her debut disc, that Liszt is bread and butter to her, making astonishingly light work of his electric Rhapsodie Espagnole. Here she picks up where she left off, dazzling with her technique and surprising with her emotional maturity. There is no call for much in the way of pathos in her programme, to be sure, although Benelli Mosell's Liebestraum in A flat is markedly poetic. But when it comes to virtuosity, sensibility, panache, however, she has what it takes. Her articulation in particular is outstanding, with every note - Liszt permitting! - clean and precise.

 

According to Brilliant's own blurb, Pascal Rogé has described Benelli Mosell as "the most natural musical talent I have encountered in my entire life as a musician and teacher". Substantial praise indeed, but not necessarily helpful - in a market of virtuosos, such words, however accurate, tend to ring insincere. Rather surprisingly perhaps, given her instantly obvious talent, Benelli Mosell's own website seems to emphasise not her pianistic ability, but her nubililty - all pages are divided in two, one side providing a carousel of photos of her in various costumes posing sultrily for the camera.

 

There is more hyperbole to be found in Gerald Larner's booklet notes, which strike a provocative note from the first line: "It is no exaggeration to claim Liszt as the greatest of all 19th-century musicians." Has he forgotten Beethoven? Mendelssohn? Schubert?

 

Engineering quality is very high - an improvement on the first album in every regard. At Brilliant's bargain price - now considerably cheaper than Naxos - this is a recital worthy of wider attention."

Liszt Album reviewed on Klassieke Zaken in the Netherlands

Excellent review on the dutch music magazine "Klassieke Zaken" of Vanessa's Liszt Album.

 

"The most natural musical talent in my whole life as a musician and piano teacher ever encountered", pianist Pascal Rogé said in 1999, after having heard the eleven years old Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell from Prato. Years of intensive study at the International Piano Academy in Imola, the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow (with Mikhail Voskresensky, student of Lev Oborin) and The Royal College of Music (with Dimitri Alexeiev) have in no way prejudiced Mosells remarkable musical feature : a crushing naturalness, which is not only reflected in the spontaneous intensity of her animated Liszt interpretations, but also in the enviable instrumental convenience of this now 24-year-old Young Steinway Artist. On her second album Mosell plays dazzling virtuoso pieces as the Hungarian Rhapsodies and the Grand Galop Chromatique, as well as lyrical reveries as the sentimental Liebestraum. It is incredible how much expressiveness Mosell pulled out of the music breaking the barriers of the CD technique. Listening to her Liszt album you get the impression that this impassioned pianist turns your home into a concert hall, with such penetrating and convincing expressive performances. Mosell is clearly a great promise for the future.

VANESSA'S SECOND ALBUM

The second album of Vanessa Benelli Mosell, one of the most exciting pianists of the younger generation, contains a selection of works which Liszt regularly performed himself during his piano recitals (the piano recital itself, being a showcase for one artist only, was invented by Liszt). The works share a quality to impress the audience, whether through hair-raising pyrotechnics (Hungarian Rhapsodies, Grand Galop Chromatique), or heartfelt sentiment (Liebestraum).

Il Venerdì di Repubblica: Benelli Mosell La pianista che conquistò Stockhausen

Karlheinz Stockhausen ha detto di lei: «Vanessa Benelli Mosell sa come far arrivare la mia musica alle persone». Tutto cominciò quando lei gli portò un cd con alcune sue registrazioni: la giovane pianista di Prato non si aspettava certo che dopo pochi giorni il grande compositore tedesco le avrebbe scritto una lettera, invitandola ad andare a studiare con lui in Germania. Ma così fu : quel tirocinio inaspettato («era un uomo capace di ascoltare con grande pazienza» racconta la Mosell), durò un anno e fu interrotto solo dalla morte del musicista, scomparso a ottant’anni nel dicembre del 2007. Per capire cosa Stockhausen trovò nella musica dell’artista toscana si può ascoltare il suo disco di debutto, Virtuoso piano music, dove la venticinquenne passa da Prokofiev a Liszt, da Hayden a Scriabin, dimostrando, come ha detto il New York Post, «di essere una pianista straordinariamente musicale e fluente». A giugno, uscirà un suo cd dedicato a Liszt con brani virtuosistici e di intrattenimento, come il Sogno d’amore, le Rapsodie ungheresie i Galoppi, scritti tra il 1838 e il 1850. (E. Coraretti)

Le Soir - Une respiration belge aux Midis du Louvre

The belgian newspaper "Le Soir", interviewing Vanessa Benelli Mosell.

"La chemise de José Roland n'est plus blanche, elle est semée de nuages rouges. Celle de Chris Christoffels aussi. De loin, on dirait du sang séché, en plus clair. De près, on voit mieux qu'ils n'ont pas trempé dans un crime, que les traces écarlates qui les maquillent sont celles de pigments rouges.

 En fait, ils ont taillé des crayons rouges. Pas pour le plaisir enfantin de faire de belles pointes, mais pour le plaisir artistique de récolter les copeaux, les rognures du taille-crayon et de les utiliser dans une vidéo, en soufflant sur les pellicules colorées pour les projeter sur un mur.

 Le souffle qui fait voler les couleurs. Le souffle qui régule la vie. C'est Breath, le nouveau spectacle multimédia du duo d'artistes belges. Ils viennent de montrer Homère à Saint-Omer. Les voilà maintenant au Louvre, le 29 septembre. La musique de Breath sera interprétée par Dionysis Grammenos à la clarinette et Vanessa Benelli Mosell au piano lors d'un concert où le duo interprétera aussi des œuvres de Brahms et de Poulenc.

 « L'un et l'autre sont des phénomènes musicaux, indique Chris Christoffels, le compositeur du duo. Dionysis est directeur du Festival d'art de Corfou, à 22 ans. Vanessa, à 24 ans, est demandée dans le monde entier. J'ai recommencé la partition à plusieurs reprises, parce que leur technique est époustouflante. »

 Dans ces Midis du Louvre, pas possible de montrer la création multimédia. Mais Chris et José ont enregistré un DVD qui sera distribué aux auditeurs. Et qui donnera du souffle à l'œuvre. Par la suite, on espère bien voir et entendre le tout ensemble.

 Dionysis et Vanessa répètent dans le studio des créateurs, à Ixelles. « C'est la première fois que j'écris pour la clarinette, reprend Chris. Et j'étais très ému d'entendre mes notes jouées. Et heureux que ça leur plaise. » 

Dionysis Grammenos est né à Corfou, dans l'île de la clarinette. Pas de surprise s'il a choisi cet instrument. « A 8 ans, je jouais dans un de ces groupes d'instruments à vent. Aujourd'hui, ce que j'aime, c'est la scène : rien ne vaut l'intensité du contact immédiat avec le public. L'enregistrement par contre… Sauf quand c'est live. » Les séances de photos et vidéos, le Grec qui vit en Allemagne n'aime pas trop non plus : « Ce n'est pas ce que je préfère, mais… »

 Vanessa Benelli Mosell, elle, s'y prête avec patience. « Dionysis m'a invitée à jouer avec lui ? Ça m'a fait très plaisir. » La jeune Italienne qui vit à Londres a travaillé pendant trois ans aux côtés de Stockhausen. « J'avais 16 ans, c'était excitant. Recevoir ses conseils, c'était fantastique. »

 Dernièrement elle était en Chine pour une tournée. « J'y étais bien, je n'avais pas envie de quitter ce pays. » Mais la voilà à Bruxelles avant de se retrouver, bientôt, à Paris. 

Pour le moment, on la filme, pour la vidéo du spectacle. Elle recommence une fois de plus les notes d'introduction, se lève et plonge la main dans le cœur du piano pour titiller les cordes. Dionysis attend, un peu anxieux. Ce sera bientôt son tour d'être filmé. José Roland et Chris Christoffels, toujours tachés de rouge, restent attentifs, coachent le cameraman, l'éclairagiste. Anxieux eux aussi. Le trac toujours. Il ne se dénouera qu'au Louvre, une fois que Vanessa et Dionysis entameront Breath.

 Breath à l'Auditorium du Louvre à Paris le 29 septembre à 12 h 30."

(Jean-Claude Vantroyen)

CD Review on International Record Review

 

“As she was described by Pascal Rogé as “…the most natural musical talent I have encountered in my entire life as a musician and teacher”, one naturally expects an intriguing listen from Italian Vanessa Benelli Mosell’s début disc. Acclaimed performances of Stockhausen’s Klavierstuecke (with whom she studied until his death) suggest she possesses a command of technical challenges, which indeed manifests itself in assured playing throughout this recital. She attacks the opening of Prokofiev’s Sonata n. 7 with a determined impetus and nervous energy. Passages of quieter reflection come across as somewhat detached rather than desolate, portraying as almost nonchalant passive-aggressiveness. This feeling continues throughout the second movement Andante Caloroso. While she does make the transition from the rather beautiful opening to the highly chromatic middle section and back again effectively, one senses a slight innocence to the underlying bitterness in this movement. She launches into the final Precipitato toccata with an electric energy, highlighting strands of counterpoint and hidden voices with a steely precision. The dizzying pace is maintained right up to the last bar, an impressive feat in itself…”

“Mosell’s handling of Haydn’s E minor Keyboard Sonata, Hob. XVI/34 is particularly deft. Tempos are promisingly brisk, supplemented by a clarity in rapid passages throughout…”

“Unsurprisingly, Mosell launches headlong into Scriabin's unfairly neglected Sonata No. 1. Think for a moment what impact over-practicing Balakiriev's Islamey can have on the hands. It is said Scriabin damaged his right hand considerably doing just this, penning this Sonata as an outcry against what he believed was his fate. With this in mind, Mosell is appropriately melancholic in the Adagio second movement, allowing it to pass by as if it were an introspective stream of consciousness, as well as in the closing Funebre. The third movement Presto is well handled, showcasing her apparent ease with rapid octaves…”, “…This is a promising début recital, showing flashes of inspiration and virtuosity. Young female contemporaries might just have a contender waiting in the wings.”

CD review on SUONO

Challenging program chosen by Vanessa Benelli Mosell for her début album. Works that require it remarkable technical skills beyond sensitivity of interpretation. Armed with a prestigious curriculum that places her among the most talented pianists of our age, the young Vanessa securely tackles this challenge by offering high-level performances. Prokofiev Sonata n. 7 has been written in 1940. Second of the three “war” Sonatas, it won a Stalin Prize which made it famous. The first movement Allegro inquieto, alternating between two contrasting elements, is followed by the Andante caloroso, lyrical and espressivo, and closes with the famous Precipitato with fast sequences of drum-beat chords. Rhapsodie Espagnole by Liszt is from 1863 and belongs to the Roman years of the Hungarian musician. Liszt inserts some Spanish themes as the Folie d’Espagne which, after a brief introduction, opens the work, and Jota Aragonesa with a distinctly virtuoso character. A third theme follows, which together with the previous themes triumphantly closes the composition. Trills, octave jumps, sprints and fast repeated notes makes the Rhapsody a real virtuoso challenge. Haydn and Scriabin follow. By the first we have the E minor Sonata Hob: XVI/34, composed by three movements with the Adagio between the fast movements. The Sonata is written in 1892 and about a hundred years separates it from Scriabin Sonata n. 1 op. 6. Haydn’s classical language is however not missing conflicting elements and rhythmic tensions that dominate the Sonata n. 1 op. 6. Composed in 1982 is in four movements with a long initial Allegro followed by a movement without indication , a Presto and a Funeral march which accentuates the dramatic nature of the work. (SUONO - September 2011, Paola Raschi) Artistic quality: 8, Technical quality: 9

Vanessa's Virtuoso Piano Album is a "fabulous CD" for the spanish music magazine Melomano

 

Debut Album Virtuoso Piano Music has been reviewed and marked as a "Reccommended Audio" on the spanish music magazine Melomano, in July 2011.

"Benelli Mosell has chosen a demanding program that shows her remarkable talents and exploits the potential of the piano to the fullest. Furthermore, a precision of high purity technique and a chamaleon ability to match each one of the different styles and moods of the programme."

 

Brilliant Classics presenta el álbum de debut de la joven virtuosa Vanessa Benelli Mosell. La italiana ha desarrollado de manera fulgurante su carrera tocando el piano por medio mundo, con orquestas, como la Filarmónica de Berlín, o en recital, como en el Wigmore Hall de Londres. Por lo que ha resultado verdaderamente conocida es por haber sido invitada por el ya fallecido Karlheinz Stockhausen para estudiar con él en Alemania, lo que le llevó a convertirse en toda una experta y reputada intérpretede la música de este autor. No obstante, para su disco de presentación, Benelli ha escogido un exigente programa que despliega sus notables talentos y explota el potencial expresivo del piano al máximo.A ello cabría añadir, a resultas, una precisión en la técnica de gran pureza y un amoldamiento camaleónico a cada uno de los estilos expuestos.El repertorio abarca siglo y medio de historia de la música, desde la dramática obra en tonalidad menor de Franz Joseph Haydn de 1784 hasta la segunda de las tres Sonatas de Guerra de Serguéi Prokofiev. La obra del soviético,la Sonata para piano nº 7 en si bemol,abre el fabuloso disco mientras que la Sonata para piano en mi menor Hob.XVI: 34 de Haydn sucede y antecede a otras dos piezas muy relevantes: la Rapsodia Espanola S254 de Franz Liszt del año 1863, y Sonata para piano nº 1 en fa menor opus 6,de Alexander Scriabin, compuesta en 1892.

MusicWeb International - Review
This first CD by Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell is subtitled 'Virtuoso Piano Music' - needlessly, perhaps, but truthfully. None of the works played here is exactly under-recorded, but for a debut recording this is certainly an impressive programme in every respect.

According to the Brilliant Classics blurb, Pascal Rogé has called Benelli Mosell "the most natural musical talent I have encountered in my entire life as a musician and teacher", and shortly before his death Karlheinz Stockhausen said she "has the power to let people appreciate my music". It has been known for 'older gentlemen' to get carried away when spending time in the company of young women, especially sultry, blonde, voluptuous Italian ones with a prodigious artistic talent - far better therefore to let the musicianship speak for itself.

That means letting these four great works speak for themselves - which Benelli Mosell does indeed do. Perhaps her youth prevents her from imposing a strong personality on the music, but in an online interview in Italian she implies that she understands - from her study with Stockhausen of his Klavierstücke - that the pianist's role is to communicate the composer's ideas to audiences; in other words, performers should not make the music about themselves. Mitsuko Uchida has devoted herself to this cause, and Benelli Mosell may well be following a similar path. She is so obviously photogenic that unscrupulous agents will doubtless try to persuade her to 'do a Lang Lang', and thereby relegate composers of genius to footnotes - but so far, so good. On Brilliant at least she seems in safe hands.

In any case, to open a debut recording with Prokofiev's sarcastic, fiendish Seventh Sonata is a true baptism of fire. Yet Benelli Mosell seems to revel in the densely chromatic, often virtually atonal tumult of much of this Stalin-Award-winning, viciously anti-Stalinist work. To follow that with Liszt's phenomenally virtuosic Rhapsodie Espagnole would be artistic suicide for mere mortals, but Benelli Mosell's arms and fingers, presumably after a good rest, are more than willing, and able, to take on the relentless onslaught of gorgeous notes, and she does so with great panache.

After these two works, a keyboard sonata by Joseph Haydn might seem like a stroll in the park, but not so when the sonata in question is the no.53 in E minor, Hob. XVI/34, in which Haydn's poetic restlessness and harmonic ambiguities surprisingly begin to resemble Beethoven. Though Haydn himself would probably have been astounded by Liszt's and Prokofiev's super-human pianism, this Sonata of his is nevertheless liberally scattered with virtuosic demands on top of the specialist skills required by Classical form. Benelli Mosell takes the opening Presto a little on the sub-presto side, but she makes up for it in the Vivace molto finale. The Adagio middle movement is a well-placed balm in this otherwise fairly hectic programme.

From its opening bar, Skriabin's First Sonata, op.6 drops the pianist right back into the turbulence and drama of the early 20th century - yet amazingly, Skriabin's visionary work was written with almost a decade still left of the 19th. Benelli Mosell's account of both the bleak Adagio and the desperately sad, funereal last movement is very moving: full of emotion and insight beyond her years.

The recording is good, although the Steinway piano sounds as if it has seen better days, and the microphones are close enough to pick up sometimes too much of the noise of the piano action. Acireale is famous for its spectacular location at the foot of Etna, its carnival and its churches. The liner-notes do not specify the exact location of the recording, but the lack of reverberation suggests that Brilliant preferred the technical reliability of a studio.

For pianophiles to be in a position to determine whether or not Pascal Rogé really was hamming it up, much more evidence will be needed, and on the strength of this disc can be eagerly anticipated. Meanwhile, for anyone looking for an introduction not only to Benelli Mosell's indisputable gifts, but to the piano music of Liszt, Prokofiev or Skriabin, this is a good, neutral place to start.

Vanessa's First Album on Abeille Musique

Pour son premier enregistrement, la pianiste italienne Vanessa Benelli-Mosell a préféré s’écarter des sentiers battus : pas de Chopin ou de Rachmaninov de service, pas d’Appassionata, pas de Rêve d’amour… A la place, elle nous propose de redécouvrir une Sonate de Prokofiev, une rareté de la grande maturité de Liszt, la plus belle Sonate de Haydn, et un Scriabine, de ces œuvres qui ne hantent guère les scènes ni les CD. L’avantage est qu’elle ne sera pas automatiquement comparée à d’autres pianistes… le désavantage, c’est que l’on ne pourra pas aisément la comparer à d’autres pianistes !

 

    Le jeu de Benelli-Mosell, disons-le tout de suite, se plaît dans ces œuvres puissantes, amples, dans lesquelles la virtuosité arbitraire (celle, par exemple, des premiers Liszt) cède le pas à une virtuosité nécessaire, celle imposée par la musique elle-même. Celle de Prokofiev et du Liszt de la Rhapsodie espagnole, des œuvres d’essence orchestrale où les plans sonores dégagent mille sonorités opposées et dix mille timbres colorés. Dans Haydn, elle s’attelle à faire surgir la puissance du discours au-delà de l’apparente simplicité du discours – car c’est là la sonate la plus tragique de Haydn. Enfin, son Scriabine déborde de diaboliques déliquescences névrosées. Vanessa Benelli-Mosell, une jeune pianiste à suivre de près, maintenant qu’elle a assuré ses débuts sur une majorité de grandes scènes internationales.

The 3rd International Cello Festival VIVACELLO

The 3rd International Cello Festival VIVACELLO will be held in Moscow
in autumn 2011. The festival promises to be one of the most important
cultural events of the year. The previous two festivals were warmly
greeted by the general public and the media.
The festival is managed by cultural foundation U-Art, a Russian
concert agency, with support from the Ministry of Culture of The
Russian Federation. The Artistic Director of the festival is the acclaimed
musician Boris Andrianov.
The First International Cello Festival, which was held in February
2008, was dedicated to the memory of the great Mstislav Rostropovich;
it became a holiday that allowed lovers of art to take a fresh look at
modern cello-playing. The Second VIVACELLO International Cello
Festival was held in March 2010, with a team of the preeminent
musicians performing the works of J.S. Bach. The Festival partner was
UNICEF. One of the Festival’s highlights was an appearance by actor
Sir Roger Moore.
The Third VIVACELLO Festival will be extensively advertised and will
attract considerable public attention and media support. Participation
by Yuri Bashmet, Julian Rachlin, the Venice Chamber Orchestra and many
other artists is expected.
