Florence Suona Contemporanea 2019

Concert - Event posted by elena

Address: Piazza Santa Maria Novella 10 , Florence

Date: Thursday 11 July 2019


The two July concerts at the Museo Novecento, which begin the Firenze Suona Contemporanea2019 festival, are part of the 4 solo recitals to be held at the Museo Novecento, dedicated to a comparison between modern and contemporary music, in the West and in Asia, giving the title to the review: The Monochrome Garden.

The bill of the Eleventh Florence Suona Contemporanea2019 edition opens Thursday, July 11th, at 9.30pm , at the Novecento Museum with a solo recital for accordion entrusted to Claudio Jacomucci who, through a program that offers some Italian premieres of the Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa , in the company of composers such as Yuji Takahashi, Akemi Naito, Stefano Scodanibbio, Martin Lohse, György Ligeti, explores the languages of contemporary music in Asia and the West. In the same evening there will be a preview of the new exhibitions at the Museo Novecento . Among others, there will be works by Severini, Modigliani, De Chirico, Sironi, Kokoschka, Klimt, Schiele as well as projects by Adolfo Natalini and creations by Sandra Vasquez de la Horra.

The concerts at the Museo Novecento continue on July 24th , again at 9:30 pm, with a piano recital by Emanuele Torquati , through a program that the pianist himself calls "Zen Garden" . The fulcrum around which this place of fantasy unfolds are the Studios composed between 2011 and 2013 by the most important Japanese living composer, Toshio Hosokawa, ideally ascribable to those of his illustrious predecessor Claude Debussy. Each of them starts from a musical element in an almost calligraphic way, composed first by 2 Lines, then by 3 and finally by a gaunt Lied.

After the summer break in August, Firenze Suona Contemporanea2019 resumes the program with: Nyman's Earthquakes by Michael Nyman , world premiere at the Manifattura Tabacchi (September 7-14), a 5-screen video installation on the earthquake in Mexico; a new Italian premiere work by William Kentridge and Joanna Dudley at the Tepidarium Roster (25 September); the American artist Nancy Burson in "double-dress" with the sculpture Dna has No Color at the Manifattura Tabacchi (September 7-14) and with a video installation entitled The Love Above All Else at the Marino Marini Museum (9-23 September); the concert by Michele Marasco , first flute of the Orchestra della Toscana, with pianist Marta Cencini entirely dedicated to minimalism in music (September 14); the cellist Francesco Dillon with a program of very young Japanese composers at the Museo Novecento (11 September); the historic flute of Roberto Fabbriciani always at the Museo Novecento (20 September). The exhibition ends on September 27th at the Museo Novecento with a marathon-concert dedicated to the Fluxus movement with the title FLASH FLUXUS .
