                                    ABOUT THE CONCERT

 

          

         YOU MAY HAVE THE UNIVERSE IF I MAY HAVE ITALY !
                Opera composer GIUSEPPE VERDI (1813~1901)

         Celebrating the 200th anniversary of VERDI's birth.

 

Seven composers coming from different parts of Italy have selected as many lyrics of the Master of Busseto and re-arranged them according to their own taste and aesthetics. In addition to these "re-makes", which do not lose sight of Verdi's musical lesson, the program includes the performance of some of Verdi's own works in their original version for voice and piano.


"VERDI OUR CONTEMPORARY"

Due to its constant focus on the new in both the music of the past and the present, 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 result was "VERDI OUR CONTEMPORARY". 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.

    Concert was great. I had to leave a little early but enjoyed it very much. They didn't have my name at the door though. Thanks.
