Recitals @ 28th MilanoMusica Festival

Emanuele will perform 2 Solo Recitals in Milan for one of Italian most prestigious Festival, the 28th Edition of Milano Musica. Performances will take place at Gallerie d’Italia on 12nd and 19th November at 7 pm. and will feature two different thematic programs. Both are related with the imposing exhibition which compares sculptures made by Antonio Canova and his Danish contemporary Bertel Thorvaldsen.

The first one – “Anima e Danza” – intersperses some beautiful Couperin “Pieces de clavecin” with important works related to the world of Dance written by Niccolò Castiglioni, George Benjamin and Francesco Filidei, with his recent Berceuse for piano. As an elusive end of this journey will be Maurice Ravel’s rendition of Waltzes, the seminal series of “Valses nobles et sentimentales”.

The second one – “Musica, Respiro delle Statue” – is more about contemplation and will start with Morton Feldman’s 25 minutes long “Palais de Mari”, inspired by the Syrian Royal Palace, and alternate then Berio Six Encores with Erik Satie’s “Crossed-up Dances”. As an Homage to Ancient Statues, Karol Szymanovski at the beginning of 20th century wrote his flamboyant “Metopes op. 29″, inspired by Greek Temples and Mythological figures represented on them.
