Here a (partial) list of weblogs and websites I found that talk about us. This is very impressive considering that we are pratically doing what we do since July 2007. Thank you to all!

Other important articles or posts about us may be found at: (the list is not updated yet).

Very interesting is what these last say:

As a response to your message inciting users to look for new alternatives I searched the web to look for legal ways to gain copyright protection and at the same time contribute to the free culture in the digital world.

In class we talked about Lessing and his book "free culture". Lawrence Lessing is also the creator of a non-profit organization called Creative Commons. Creative Commons offers really liberal copyright agreements that permits artists to license their works for free use. The artist then uses the creative commons portal as a database to post their works. The database contains movies, music, soundtracks and written articles.

At first this idea may sound a bit obscure, but sites like Wikipedia (a non-legal source) use creative commons licensing agreements for the authors that post the information. Wikipedia has become for many users an alternative for acquiring general background info (though sometimes unreliable) on a great deal of topics.

Another example of the Creative Commons agreements put to use is the online record label OnClassical. This record label share their profit shares 50/50 with their artists and, at the same time, they enjoy international recognition for the quality of its artists and performers.

I invite all of you to check out more info on the topic on the website

It's very important how they compare us to WikiPedia and Creative Commons directly!

Two different recordings of the same event!

Gianluca Luisi

The year 2005 saw the beginning of a very fruitful collaboration with Gianluca Luisi: the fruits being 5 albums which were completed at Turin on the 12th July 2007.

Keep you eyes open for the imminent release of: Partitas by Bach (2 CDs), Chopin's 4 Scherzos and a Piano Recital containing virtuoso transcriptions. Mr. Luisi recently recorded the complete Well Tempered Clavier (4 CDs) and new albums are in program under the OnClassical label.

Now you may enjoy the first CD of the Italian pianist: Mozart's Late Sonatas in (1) (2) different versions reproducing the same recording but using different microphones (AKG mics. vs Neumann mics.)!
