300 years of Cello Music - Conference 13/06

"From Giuseppe Colombi to Luciano Berio. Three hundred years of cello music".

with works by Giuseppe Colombi, J S Bach, Paul Hindemith, Luciano Berio, Salvatore Sciarrino, Ivan Fedele, Vittorio Montalti.

The cello is an extraordinary instrument. It expresses its nature in a continuous bass passage, "sings" like a human voice, and remains a wide-ranging and multifaceted source of expression for today's composers.

The cello's repertoire, which over the centuries has inspired Bach and Berio, Beethoven and Sciarrino, is unrivalled in its versatility, and possesses a unique ability to embody the most remote roles and needs.

There is a very rigorous and refined grammar, syntax and logic in the cello's musical discourse, but also a creative and transcendent dimension, which makes this instrument a privileged witness to Western artistic production over the last three centuries.

Presented by Claudio Pasceri with the participation of Jean-Paul Dessy and moderation by Martin Loridan.
