Il Mondo di Frutta Candita (album di Gianni Morandi del 1975)

Nel 1975, già da alcuni anni in bilico tra il buio e il dimenticatoio, Gianni Morandi incide a mio modesto parere uno dei suoi album più belli: IL MONDO DI FRUTTA CANDITA.

La storia ci racconta che, dopo i fasti degli anni Sessanta in cui Morandi fu l’interprete di maggior successo della musica italiana, nel decennio successivo l’ugola d’oro emiliana, dopo un inizio promettente, crollò nel limbo dell’insuccesso riuscendo tuttavia a lasciare il segno con alcuni dischi come quello di cui scrivo.

Prodotto dal suo paroliere storico Franco Migliacci, musicato da Oscar Prudente, che arrangiò il disco, mise in evidenza il giovane Ivano Fossati come autore di tutti i testi meno uno: proprio quello del brano che intitola l’album, scritto da Mogol.

Il pezzo d’apertura, La caccia al bisonte, mette in evidenza il tema di un’usanza che divide: uccidere gli animali è o no un gesto insano? Sette di sera intona una giornata che volge al termine in uno stile minimalista e rilassante, mentre con Autostrade, no! Morandi sfoggia un’interpretazione grintosa e disperata sostenuta da un arrangiamento magnifico che ne esalta l’enfasi. In Favole di mare emergono ricordi balneari mai sopiti. Poi tocca al pezzo eponimo: struggente racconto di strada che, in modo elegante, tocca lo spinoso argomento della prostituzione. Due ore di polvere è un viaggio della memoria con sviluppi personali in cui Gianni mira anche a ritrovare una persona cara.

Così approdiamo alla conclusione del disco con la bella e intensa Io domani me ne vado, disilluso racconto di una quotidianità da cui Morandi prende le distanze e La mia gente, che intona il punto di vista morandiano sull’operato altrui, con comprensione ma anche distacco.

Chiosa finale, IL MONDO DI FRUTTA CANDITA non fu un successo e tanto meno raggiunse lo stato di classico, ma consiglio ai tanti che non lo hanno ascoltato di farlo, per capire come un musicista sappia essere grande anche nel suo periodo peggiore.
