4 Episodi (2005); 3 Duetti (2020)

This volume includes Episodi and Duetti by Alessandro Spazzoli, a pupil from long ago who has remained a friend. In it, there are two series of short compositions which easily go beyond their inborn didactic purpose with the formation of a flute duet.
While facing all the problems which every young flautist, albeit not a novice, finds along the way, these short pieces are characterized by their delicate and refined style, not just for use in school.
New and changing rhythms, penetrating and ironic dissonances, surprising unisons and harmonies give flavour to an intelligent and ever coherent contrapuntal fabric.
At last, here is music of great good taste, developed with a conception and construction sometimes contemporary, sometimes archaic, but always able to stimulate the interest and attention of each performer, whether an expert or a beginner.
Let us imagine a teacher and a pupil or, preferably, two youngsters face-to-face with these compositions who may be struck by what these sounds give rise to in the imagination: far-off and unknown worlds, oriental and magic visions.
It is easy to suppose that they will be fascinated by that blend of beauty and intelligence which is so necessary in the training of anyone approaching and becoming familiar with the art of music.
(Mario Ancillotti)

Alessandro Spazzoli was born in Forlì in 1964 and studied composition with Leonardo Lollini, Claudio Josè Boncompagni and Gilberto Cappelli graduating “full honours” at the Conservatorio of Cesena.
A number of his compositions, which have won prizes in international competitions, have been published by Carisch, Ut Orpheus and Habanera, recorded by Tactus, Dotguitar and Bottega Discantica and performed in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Romania, Estonia, Lithuania, Mexico, USA and Japan.
He received the “Golden Guitar” award for his guitar compositions at the 27th International Guitar Convention in Milan.
After obtaining a diploma in flute at the Conservatorio of Bologna, he specialized with Severino Gazzelloni and Mario Ancillotti and has since then collaborated with a number of orchestra and chamber groups. He holds the chair of flute at Istituto Musicale “A. Masini” in Forlì, and is bandmaster of the city band.

... Ces duos, écrits de manièere inventive dans un style oscillant entre le contemporain et l’archaïque (dissonants, consonants, aux rythmes surprenants) constituent un recueil d’une grande originalité pour les amateurs. (Jean-Luc Abras)
