Marcos Vinicius guitar

...Contro l'immediatismo date tempo al tempo e aspettate, con persistenza e determinazione, i migliori risultati possibili che, se realmente volete, non dubito possiate conseguire...

...L'Arte è una necessità spirtuale dell'uomo. La tecncia cosciente è l'arte necessaria alla nostra realizzazione come musicisti, dove le nostre idee, parole e frasi saranno meglio comprese se useremo con arte questa bella grammatica di suoni.

(dal libro didattico "L'Arte della Tecnica Cosciente"
di M. Vinicius - Pongo Edizoni)

English translation

DEDICATORIA, at a first glance appears to be a simple heterogeneous collection of pieces by composers of completely diverse biographical backgrounds. An analysis of the title and its semantic value indicate otherwise. Dedicatoria is a Spanish term of dedication, the significance of which is a homage that the author wishes to make of this work to a real or idealized audience.

Vinicius wished the dedication to operate as a title and, as the title itself represents a form of interpretation, this choice advises us that, in our case, the title does not have the simple function of identification. It is the act of baptism of a work in which the performer takes on the responsibilities belonging to a composer.

The individual pieces, written by well known composers and therefore easily recognizable, are set out here in a certain unique manner with the objective of producing a significant effect which would not be possible (even though present in the expressive potential of each one) if they had not been placed in this sequential order by the performer....

...At this point it is perhaps necessary to remind ourselves how much a culture, founded on the conservation of historic memory, should be indebted to artifices of this kind, because in the words of Thomas Mann:

The quotation, as such, has something
specifically musical notwithstanding its
mechanical aspect. On the other hand it is a
reality which transforms itself into fiction
absorbing reality, confusing their borders and
obtaining a particular dreamlike fantasy.
Thomas Mann, Romance of a romance)

M. Vinicius

"...Against the desire for immediate results, take your time and wait, with persistence and determination, the best results possible which, if you really desire them, I have no doubt that you will be able to achieve...

...Art is a spiritual necessity for mankind. Conscious technique is the art necessary to realise ourselves as musicians, where out ideas, words and phrases will be understood better if we use with art this beautiful grammar of sounds."

(from didactic book "L'Arte della Tecnica Cosience"
by M. Vinicius - Pongo Edizione)
