Storie di passioni e di perdizione, di amori destinati a durare per sempre e di incontri fugaci, di erotismo e di pure idealità romantiche, di misantropi, scienziati, profeti e angeli. Tahar Ben Jelloun, attingendo alle mille fonti dell’immaginario favolistico e delle tradizioni magiche del mitico Oriente, tratteggia in questi racconti l’universo del sentimento amoroso, e lo declina nelle sue molteplici e spesso impreviste forme, nella consapevolezza, ora divertita ora malinconica, che l’amore e il sesso sono i più grandi incantesimi del mondo, veicolo e luogo di supremi misteri, di pulsioni incontrollabili, di fascinazioni uniche e irripetibili: come la natura umana.

Quello di Costantinopoli è stato un caso unico nella storia: mille anni di dominio incontrastato su un impero vastissimo e multietnico. Dal IV secolo fino alla caduta, avvenuta nel 1453 per mano di Maometto II, l'Impero romano d'Oriente è sopravvissuto al gemello d'Occidente, ha retto l'onda d'urto degli Unni, degli Slavi, degli Arabi e degli altri che nei secoli hanno cercato di sfondare il limes. Eppure la forza militare, la posizione e le risorse non erano neppure lontanamente paragonabili a quelle di Roma. Come è stato possibile?

Elgar’s Violin Concerto has a certain mystique about it independent of the knee-jerk obeisance it has received in the British press. It probably is the longest and most difficult of all Romantic violin concertos, requiring not just great technical facility but great concentration from the soloist and a real partnership of equals with the orchestra. And like all of Elgar’s large orchestral works, it is extremely episodic in construction and liable to fall apart if not handled with a compelling sense of the long line. In reviewing the score while listening to this excellent performance, I was struck by just how fussy Elgar’s indications often are: the constant accelerandos and ritards, and the minute (and impractical) dynamic indications that ask more questions than they sometimes answer. No version, least of all the composer’s own, even attempts to realize them all: it would be impossible without italicizing and sectionalizing the work to death.
