GUIDO NOVELLO, flutist (Venezia – Venezia 1988). Guido Novello studied with Silvio Clerici (1st flute of Italian Radio Broadcasting Orchestra). Novello was considered one of the best international flutists by great composers and conductors. He played for thirty years as Principal flute in the Venezia Teatro “La Fenice” Orchestra and was invited many times to play in the same role by “la Scala” di Milano, by the Italian Radio Orchestra of Torino and also by H. von Karajan with the Berliner Philharmoniker, but he prefered to remain in his beloved Venezia. He was also the first soloist flute at the Biennale Musica of Venice. Novello gave many and many concerts as soloist in Italy and abroad. He taught many years at the Trieste and Venice Conservatoires. His principal students have been Giorgio Blasco (now he teaches flute at Triest Conservatoire) and Monica Finco (flute teacher at Venice Conservatoire).

Ernő Dohnányi (1877-1960), Passacaglia for solo flute

From CD “Easterly Winds” (2007)
Recorded at Estudios Moebio, Buenos Aires, in July 2007


Although Ernő Dohnányi’s music was essentially Romantic in nature, the Passacaglia for Solo Flute employs the 12 tone series, in an attempt to juggle with a new language. The renowned flutist, Eleanor Baker, reminiscing on her youth, recalls having heard Dohnányi play a Brahms Sonata marvelously and there and then, expressing her sorrow at Brahms not having composed a similar work for the flute. Dohnányi had promptly replied, “then I will compose one for you, in his stead”. It was thus that Op.48 No.1 (Aria for Flute and Piano) and Op.48 No.2 (Passacaglia for Solo Flute) came to be, both having Ms.Baker as the dedicatee. And it was she who premiered both works at Carnegie Hall in New York in 1969.

Thank you to my dear friend and colleague JEAN-MICHEL TANGUY, Professor at Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Mannheim; International soloist; former soloist of the Beethoven Halle Bonn Orchestra, The Rotterdam Orchestra, The Belgium National Orchestra; former Professor of the Brussels Royal Conservatory for posting this beautiful review of my CD.

Very impressed by this French Recital played so beautifully by Horacio Parravicini.

The choice of the pieces, the wonderful warm and varied vibrato, the technical clarity and elegance of style and the noble phrasing, the quality of articulation and intonation, in general such a control in changing colours and good taste, when needed such a generous well centered tone, makes this CD a real piece of art and masterpiece, shows how to play such a French Recital on the flute.

The Bilbao symphony orchestra can be proud to possess such an exceptional and outrange principal flute, and for me such a new prestigious colleague and friend!
