Description

Verdi Nostro Contemporaneo (Verdi Our Contemporary)

“Go back to the old, this will be a step forward” (G. Verdi, Letter to Francesco Florimo, January 5, 1871)

 

The Ensemble Nuove Musiche, under the guide of conductor Marco Lombardo,  brings to the US Verdi Our Contemporary, a concert based on the composer’s chamber lyrics, which incorporates tradition and contemporary music. Ensemble Nuove Musiche, on the occasion of Verdi’s Bicentennial, invited seven contemporary Italian composers to arrange seven lyric works by Verdi according to their own poetic interpretation and composition aesthetics.

The program includes works by Azio Corghi,  Fabrizio De Rossi Re, Marco Betta, Marcello Pusceddu, Riccardo Piacentini, Colombo Taccani, and Marco Lombardi, in addition to a few lyric works by Verdi in their original form for piano and voice. 

Supported by the Italian Cultural Institute and the Embassy of Italy.
