The Quadriphonic Vocal Ensemble
by Maestro ANGELO RUBINI
and his assistents Maestros STEFANO GHISONI
and PATRIZIA TOMBOLATO,
is a vocal group that has been founded in the City of Cremona
in the summer of the year 2007
by BEPPE CANTARELLI and STEFANO NEVA (tenor-baritone-bass & artistic
There are members - who join in for both recording sessions as well as concert activities
from the City of Cremona
and from the nearby Cities of Parma and Piacenza,
as well as members from other
choirs in other cities such as
Pěncara of Rovigo, Roncole Verdi,
Soragna, Chiaravalle della Colomba, Zibello,
Frescarolo, Colorno and Busseto.
One of its main
- besides using "sound in space" adopting "quadriphony" and "tridimensional stereophony"
where it is possible due to the architectural structure of the location of the performance -
it's the reading of the Poliphonic Choral Score
with an Attitude and an Interpretation by each one of its Singers-Members more typical of a Soloist rather than a Choir Member,
with its own soloists
such as tenor-baritone STEFANO NEVA,
soprano ROSSANA GUARESCHI, pop-R&B vocalist PAOLA
pop-R&B vocalist CASSIUS VERUCCHI as well as BEPPE
This approach - a little bit revolutionary
if you want
and with no doubt against all the traditional and academic rules of the performance and choral culture itself
by antonomasia -
brings a final result of a superior "definition" and "clearity of rendition"
of each and every part of the various poliphonic voices.
This due to the the "quadriphony" and/or the "tridimension",
on one hand,
and to a more "organic" and "full-blooded", with a consequent elevation of the
"emotional barycentre", on the other hand,
just thanks to the exaltation of the Solo Attitude
that within the Artistic and Creative context of the Quadriphonic Vocal Ensemble $RADIVARIU$
is never castrated nor sistematically - and accademically, as it happened in the past - inhibited,
but to the contrary always
encouraged and actively pursued as a constant form of "Solo Choral Poliphony".
This vocal "format" -
which is used both during recording sessions and live concerts -
takes also advantage of the new and
"CROSSOVER VOICE TECHNIQUE / TECNICA VOCALE CROSSOVER"
written by BEPPE CANTARELLI
(Edizioni Curci, Milan, Italy).
The $TRADIVARIU$ MUSICAL LAB has also been founded in the City of Cremona
during the production of the "Christmas 2007 Tour - MENTRE IL SILENZIO (WHILE SILENCE)" as a Strings Ensemble.
Formed mainly by Instrumentalists also Makers-of-Strings-Instruments,
it accompanies the omonimous Quadriphonic Vocal Ensemble.
"They all are String Instruments - loves to remark Beppe Cantarelli - Voices, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Double Basses, Acoustic Guitars,
Pianos and others...
a 'Musical Lab-Vocal Ensemble' like this could not be born in any other city but
the City of Cremona,
where the making and creating of the 'Resonance Box' for 'String Instruments'
is an Art that has unique and worldwide recognized roots and origins...
the name STRADIVARIUS
- maybe a little bit too American... - it's an even more than natural consequence."
