Sunday 11 and Monday 12 July 2021 - 8pm
Bargello National Museum - via del Proconsolo, 4 - Florence
Solo voice: ELENA DI LEO
Music by G. Gershwin

The father of the American musical and the essence of jazz, an extraordinary pianist and composer able to reconcile cultured European music with popular overseas.

George Gershwin was this and much more. The Classical Tuscany Orchestra pays tribute to his repertoire steeped in cinema and theater, on Sunday 11 and Monday 12 July in the courtyard of the Bargello National Museum. Both concerts will start at 8pm.

Two evenings to listen to "Embraceable You", "But Not For Me", "Summertime", "Someone to Watch Over Me", "I Loves You Porgy", "I Got Rhythm" and other songs that have marked the twentieth century imagination .

On the podium will be Biagio Ilacqua, former director of the Messina Youth Symphony Orchestra and winner of various national and international awards.

At the piano we will find the extraordinary talent Fernando Ramsés Peña Díaz, who is also responsible for the orchestral arrangements: pianist, composer and arranger, he graduated in classical piano with full marks at the University of Colima in Mexico and is one step away from degree in jazz piano at the Santa Cecilia conservatory in Rome. His career is studded with awards and accolades. He boasts numerous international experiences and his music is performed in the United States, Italy, Finland and Mexico.

The vocal parts will be entrusted to Elena Di Leo.

The Classical Tuscany Orchestra is made up of young orchestra professors, trained both in Italy and abroad. Since 1999 he has had over 500 concerts to his credit. Since 2015, the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, recognizing its merits, has included it among the Youth Music Production Orchestras.
