Sunset Serenade at Piazzale Michelangelo

Thursday 25 July 2019, at 19.30, from the splendid terrace overlooking the lily city, the Piazzale Michelangelo, the Italian Brass Week, in collaboration with the District 1 of the Municipality and ANBIMA, gives the public a serenade at sunset, Sunset Serenade .

The American brass quintet The Alliance Brass - consisting of Amy Melson and Chris O'Hara on the trumpets, Kelly Langenberg on the horn, Steven Duncan on the trombone and James Langenberg on the tuba - will play at sunset, offering the public a fascinating journey into the most evocative and enthralling soundtracks.

Opens the Russian Sailor's Dance evening by Reinhold Gliere from The red poppy , a revolutionary Russian ballet included in the 1937 film Knight without Armor . From Russia to the States with the musical West side story by Leonard Bernstein and three songs Maria, Tonight and America, which take us back to the rivalry of the two gangs of teenagers, the Shraks and the Jets, and their love disputes. The soundtrack, albeit delicate, as a spokesman for American social and racial issues is still considered a masterpiece today.

From Bernstein to Queen and its leader Freddy Mercury with Bohemian Rhapsody , the soundtrack of the recent film biography already awarded two Golden Globes and six Oscar nominations.

And again Alfred Newman with his 20 th Century Fox fanfare , written in 1935 and performed at the opening of the six films of the Lucas Star Wars saga , as well as in the episodes I 'The phantom menace', IV 'A new hope' and V 'The empire Strikes back'.

A tribute to the Moon, to that inlet of the River of the Moon in Georgia that remembers it, overlooking the city of the lily at sunset, with Moon River by Henry Mancini, soundtrack of Breakfast at Tiffany's , interpreted by Audrey Hepburn and winner of the Oscar as the best song in 1962.

From Georgia to Sergio Leone's Italian western for the music of Ennio Morricone, For a Fistful of Dollars , the first great success of the dollar trilogy.

The evening closes with one of the most famous Suites on the planet: Star Wars by John Williams.

Free admission.
