The curious musicophile is always in quest of new repertoires, hidden gems and unjustly forgotten figures. This Da Vinci Classics album represents such a discovery, whose value is increased by the unusual instrumental combination it features, i.e. a piano trio with clarinet and cello.The composer of these works is Gaetano Corticelli, a now neglected composer who was highly appreciated during his lifetime. He was born on June 22nd, 1804, to Lucia Mazzoni and her husband Clemente Corticelli, who was a famous belcanto singer and teacher at Rossini’s time. Gaetano’s younger brother, Enrico (1826-1890) would also become a pianist and an esteemed teacher at the Accademia Filarmonica.

With such a musical family it was therefore natural, for Gaetano, to undertake musical studies in his native city of Bologna. There, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, the influence of Padre Martini was still abundantly felt. This famous erudite scholar, musician and composer had taught Mozart and Johann Christian Bach; he had also accumulated an impressive collection of books and manuscripts, which he bequeathed, upon his death, to another Franciscan friar who had been his disciple, i.e. Stanislao Mattei (1750-1825). This collection formed the basis of the Library of the Liceo Musicale, thus linking the practice and teaching of music with the research and study of its sources.

Stanislao Mattei was the first teacher of counterpoint and composition at the Liceo, teaching hundreds of students, among whom Rossini, Donizetti and Morlacchi. It was normal, therefore, for a promising young musician such as Corticelli to become his student. Gaetano’s piano teacher was Benedetto Donelli (1782-1839), who had been a pupil of Mattei in turn, and who taught another great pianist of the era, Stefano Golinelli (1818-1891), who would later inherit Gaetano’s teaching duties at his death.

Corticelli was an extremely brilliant student. He obtained piano prizes in 1814 (at the age of ten) and in 1817, and was awarded a distinction in counterpoint in 1820 and 1821. He debuted as a composer at thirteen, when a Piano Concerto written by him was premiered by another fellow student of the Liceo, a girl by the name of Gaetana Calvi (1818). In the same year he wrote a Tantum ergo for male voices and orchestra, and a Symphony, whereas in 1819 he composed a four-parts gradual (Veni Sponsa Christi), which was performed on the solemn occasion of St. Cecilia’s day, i.e. one of the highpoints of the academic and religious year.

When still a teenager, Corticelli applied for membership in the most prestigious musical institution of Bologna (and probably of Italy), i.e. the Accademia Filarmonica. A report dating 1822 details the development of his admission process: “[The candidate] underwent the test prescribed by our Statutes, by composing an Antiphon and Fugue in five parts. These were carefully examined by the Class of the Masters, who unanimously approved and recommended them. They contextually declared the same [Corticelli] to be admitted in the above-mentioned Class, and ordered that his name be inscribed among the others. Later, he demanded to be admitted among the Academicians, and the votes were entirely in his favour”. If the admission to the Academy was the official mark of recognition for his compositional skills, Corticelli was equally prized as a pianist; however, he did not undertake a career as a touring virtuoso, but seemed to favour the activity as a chamber music pianist. As is well known, however, musical Italy in the nineteenth century was dominated by opera; instrumental music, and particularly chamber music, were not in vogue and could hardly earn fame and celebrity. In spite of this, some notable performances by Corticelli are documented. …
