The good taste of a beautiful music
(On Edison Misso’s CD)
Edi Misso, one of the first guitarists of the Albanian classical guitar school and one of the successful authors of pop songs over the years released a very interesting album. He is the author of a basic repertoire for young guitarists, one of the organizers of the best guitar centered events, founder of The Guitar Department at the University of Tirana’s Faculty of Music, a wise and speechless man but always a man of work and of artistic productivity.
What about this album, what does it contain and what about the values? First, the CD is simply titled, within the author’s character, without the nakedness of selling the title “Classic Guitar”. Of course, the album is entitled in English so it can be read by foreigners. It is even better if they can have it as it certainly makes it a wonderful ad for our guitar school and at the same time for the author.
The selected repertoire contains works by Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, Korsakov, Ravel and by our authors: Zadeja and Harapi.
Their performance unifies the most distinguished works. Millions of people are fond of their melodic and artistic beauty.
So they can surprise everyone by the music, even by the perfect playing of classical guitar. Together with them, one can also enjoy another element that deals with orchestrations and original works of up to 20 guitars together, also using family instruments such as mandolin and bass guitars.
Such performance bring the non listened and very interesting sounds of Ravel’s Boleros, No. 2 “Badinerie”, Bahut, “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” or as it is called “Little Serenade” by Mozart to the miniatures of The Harapi of Zadeja. All of these works would bring to any audience the good taste of beautiful music, especially if they were heard in the proper stereophonic conditions. We point out this fact as the album has an exceptional quality in its recording. It has been recorded at the Audio Bay Mastering studio of ing. Andrew Mitchell in America.
The highlight of this titanic work with professional requirements can probably be summed up in the last performance of 20 guitars, mandolin and bass tunes of the 19th-century French composer Ravel’s Bolero.Finally, it should be stated that this album constitutes a standard to be achieved by guitarists of our school and beyond. Not wanting to comment on finding and removing the curiosity of the listeners of all social strata, we can mention that each number contains a small first, a creation within the wick of the thought of the work, which has to do with pause, timbre, the rhythm or the music harmony of this divine repertoire.
