Melodies of all time for 7 Sundays of music
From 20 November 2011 to 1April 2012, Sundays at 11 am
Sunday 20 November the Aperitif Concerts begin again, and the formula is the same: concerts on Sunday mornings at 11 for a musical awakening with an aperitif afterwards offered by the Antica Cantina di Canelli and Saclà. Again this year, the Aperitif Concerts are realised with the support of a private foundation.
There are seven dates, from 20 November 2011 to 1 April 2012. Featured in this edition are all of the musical forces of the Teatro Regio: the Orchestra and Chorus, the chamber music groups and the Children’s Chorus of the Teatro Regio and the “G. Verdi” Conservatory.
For the first concert, on 20 November at the Teatro Regio, the morning is divided into two parts: in the first part two the Orchestra of the Teatro Regio conducted by Serguei Galaktionov (who is also the concertmaster) will perform the Concerto n. 10 in b minor for 4 violins and orchestra by Antonio Vivaldi, taken from the Estro Armonico; the soloists are Marco Polidori, Marina Bertolo and Cecilia Bacci. In the second part will be performed Las cuatro estaciones porteñas by Astor Piazzolla, a collection of four tangos dedicated to the Seasons in Buenos Aires that seems to take its cue from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi; here, there is an interesting cultural parallelism in which works of different periods and ambience display a common gene.
