Retrospective and imagination

Occasionally,  at least to my opinion new names of Albanian musicians living abroad  developing their careers in the most progresed  centers of the world come into light. Even now it has become common to come on stage important Albanian names, of the musical mosaics around the world, and we salute them for a while and can even be forgotten afterwards. There are many, of all levels, of all musical directions: composers, conductors, violinists, pianists, flutes, percussionists and even lutaio. They are many and varied in nature: some “noisy”, reprinting at each corner of the article their name and some “silent”. In fact, their long absence in the country distorts the true image of both sides, and then we say: That country has attention for them, or even vice versa: they have completly forgoten the country.

But if you come to get a little deeper into a human life and into its struggles of an  individual, you start to meditate, get excited, and the more you advance on the info on it, the closer you see it, the clearer it feels and the more the longer it stays in your mind, though it has almost nothing to do with you and is completely on a different horizon. The only connection remains music.

This is how it happened to me with an unknown name up to date, mentioned in “German Week”. His name is Endri Nini, and i found out that he was the son of one of the best piano teachers of the  Artistic Lyceum, Elsa Veizi.

Immediately I made the connection. And his mother as well had left to me the impression of the silent woman, who kept doing her work, very fair and always dressed in white. I came across his name on You tube when i was searching for some recordings of different authors and of course i distinguished the Albanian name.

Then I felt the touch, the imagination, the depth of his  thought, and the culture in his contemporary play. Then I saw some other pages and surprisingly i found out that: Endri  had been a lecturer at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. This strucked me, as I was lucky enough to have been at this Academy and wached it closely and of course as fas as i  know its ranking on the list of the Best Universities in the world. This fact would be enough to understand the level of this pianist  educated  in German school and the rapid growth of his career. This fact makes sound minor some of his earlier career accomplishments, such as founding the Flex Ensemble quartet, various awards in well-known European competitions, collaborations with renowned orchestras, or CD recordings by “Syntonia Musikproduktion”  etc.

 

It is important to recognize that Endri  must be present in the Albanian scene. He must be part of the of Albanians participating in the “Different Trains” Festival in Tirana or “Kamerfest” in Kosovo and beyond. re “in Tirana or” Re Musica “in Pristina. So he will enrich the artistic life of our countries and be more present in his country. This, I think, should be the cultural motto of Albanians, who live better with the opening of  their  horizons recognizing  forces.
