Since antiquity, at least from the reflections by Plato, it has been realized that the fascination that music manages to release depends on its ability to give rise both to a logical aspect given by its construct, and an eminently emotional one, both generated in the listener. This premise is necessary in order to better understand the hermeneutic sense first and then the performing rationale that the Trentino pianist Alberto Nones presents in this CD of the English label Convivium Records. The Fantaisie-Impromptu in C sharp minor, op. 66 obliges one to work on the rubato with the precision of a Cellinian graver, since only in this way one can fix, even within a few seconds, the florilegiium of images that overlap, like a photo album whose pages are turned with the frame speed of a film. In short, needed are balance and wisdom in knowing how to regulate the speed of this magmatic fluid that unfolds before our eyes/ears. All prerogatives that Alberto Nones brings to the surface impeccably with the next track, Fantaisie, i.e. op. 49, in our interpreter the idea is very clear of a “sobbing” continuity with which to give life to the three thematic blocks that constitute it, a dream that turns out to be made with open eyes, in full wakefulness, as if you were looking out on the balcony of life, which flows before our eyes, looking at something that appears real, even if the images that overlap seem to draw from the realm of unreality. And the daydream continues and ends with the Polonaise-Fantaisie that Alberto Nones refuses, rightly in my view, to ride any vaporous cloud without being, as others do, affected by a romantic wretching for its own sake, and creating instead an exploratory stage through which to experiment with sound, aggregate it, producing sound sets and subsets that contribute to forming the verticality of this piece (if I think of how, for example, Pollini performed it in the past, we are on two different galaxies, not just two different worlds, even if the starting point, for the Milanese and Trentino pianists, is the same).
