Appointment Thursday, June 13 (at 21) with the swing sound of the OsmannGold orchestra that will lead to the rediscovery of great classics of the so-called " S wing Era" in a concert full of contaminations to which the suggestive scenery of Piazza della Signoria will be set

The Florentine Summer is tinged with the colors of the swing with the OsmannGold orchestra which will fill the atmosphere of Piazza della Signoria on Thursday, June 13 (at 21) with the sounds in “Black & White” of the concert “ I G randi C lassici dello S wing ”dedicated to the great protagonists of the genre that marked the history of an era. The swing, in this case, will not only be music to dance but also and above all to listen to to fully relive its history of lights and shadows, its contaminations and thus be able to rediscover all the boldness and lightness that they have been capable of to give a new step in the modern era. A story in which the protagonists will not only be Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Louis Prima but also timeless pieces from the European tradition revisited in a jazz key.

The OsmannGold orchestra is composed of nine musicians able to recreate the atmosphere of the traditional big bands with a repertoire that crosses the great classics of every time and place to which original compositions and arrangements of little-known masterpieces are combined.

The concert organized as part of the Florentine Music Festival will be enhanced by the presence of the Cristina singer Cristina Capocchi.

Free admission.

" Jazz musicians at one point say the right word, reflect moods, climate, aesthetic conceptions, even the dominant ideologies of the period. It is the destiny of those who make music so closely linked to the news, to the history of costume and which is the expression of a social group whose events have even been tumultuous in their very rapid change ".
