This is the list of all contributions published in this section, in chronological order.

Conceived with the purpose of offering Astor Piazzolla's tangos by playing those instruments which are its vital core, the TrisTango has shown an ability of combining both a faithful and a creative interpretation of the original music. The trio - now a quartet! - has remained far from numberless interpretations which only emphasize the melodic aspect of Piazzolla's music. It has gone where the young Piazzolla in the fifties got inspiration for his new music, that is contemporary classical music - and, most of all, jazz - but it has expanded its performances by absorbing the evocative sounds of new contaminations, such as ethnic music and has given wide space to improvisations. The result is an overwhelming emotional strenght which pours out from the musicians on to the audience.

Its eclecticism allows the TrisTango to perform both in classical music seasons and jazz festivals, and furthermore it is really interesting with orchestra accompaniment.

The sound (captured with 6 Neumann mics.) and the executive production are rigorously signed by Alessandro Simonetto, founder of; post-production and mastering are made by Daniele Roccato using a natural convolution.

Here it is the interview (Italian with English subtitles) about the new release of OnClassical: 'round Piazzolla signed by TrisTango: Daniele Roccato (doublebass), Marco Tezza (piano), Massimiliano Pitocco (bandoneon) and Saverio Tasca (vibraphone and percussion).

The (real) compact disc can be purchased (see contact info) at a price of 15 euros (including expenses).


I'm very glad to report here the very recent interview asked of me by Alice Bertolini for Corriere del Veneto, an insert in the most famous Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Hopefully I'll translate it very soon and put it here online.

Another step towards success has been attained by our even more appreciated e-label, thanks to the interview, for, that sparked Corriere's interest in us.

Dear friend, just a quick note to underline a few important articles and interviews about our which have very recently appeared on the net.

Firstly, the prestigious online review for audiophiles, TNT-Audio - very well known online to be a promoter of Real Stereo concept - have just published a little article about us. I'm here reporting a brief enthusiastic extract:

I'll be keeping my eye on the OnClassical site as I seek to expand my classical music collection and suggest that you do the same. If you are not yet really into classical music, why not allow OnClassical to help you discover what is one of the great delights of being an audiophile? They've already got a great selection and I'm sure that their method of promoting lesser known artists will attract many more. This is surely one of the best gifts that the Internet has given the audiophile since a certain hi-fi magazine was started some years ago!

The article points out some good advantages of buying music online (the full version here).

In the same review, a separated interview, was given to TNT-Audio founder, Lucio Cadeddu [IT] some days ago, and I think it will be published very soon there (take a look of the site to grab it): very interesting questions there.

Another one is also the one published on the Italian Podcast - the first really to be dedicated to classical music here in Italy):

And last but not least, a final recent article is appeared at pettinix, the online Italian blog concerning all that is free (Linux, OS, Creative Commons). Is OnClassical free too? Well yes, our philosophy is! :)

So a very fortunate 2009 is to unfold!

Very soon other important news!

The American music web magazine has just released an interview to Alessandro Simonetto, founder of OnClassical. The interview, conducted by Matthias Roeder, focuses on issues related to the advantages of publishing on and the future music online. Your recording label OnClassical distributes its recordings solely via the internet. The music can be downloaded in .wav format without any copy protection (DRM-free). What brought you to this unusual business model?

Alessandro Simonetto: I have always thought that trust in the buyer is a great way to get respect from them. In this sense the philosophy of Creative Commons was a pleasant discovery and confirmation, so that control no longer depends on such entities as the royalty societies and other authorities, but on the artists themselves. With respect to OnClassical, it also means replacing the interest of the many (very often these are small record labels, agents, or producers) with the interest of the individual, because the interests of the many limits the artist in every way. So, in the end, it is the artist who benefits the most.

You may read the whole piece here.
