Vento del bosco - from Canto I dell'Inferno 'for soprano and brass ensemble by the Florentine composer and oboist Arnaldo De Felice. The composition, as the author has pointed out, «is a tribute to Dante Alighieri and the Beginning of the Divine Comedy. Inspired by a piece of prose on the figure of Lonza by Francesca Andreini, the composition takes up the tension between the human being and the animal, a symbol of nature and instinct, a primal force from which man tries in vain to escape. The music expresses a large part of the text, while the soprano's voice outlines its most expressive and dramatically salient features ». The brass ensemble is conducted by the honorary president of the festival, historic first horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and teacher of Indiana University, M ° Dale Clevenger, and is made up of the international soloists of the festival: Luca Benucci, artistic director of the festival, first horn of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, teacher of the School of Music of Fiesole and of the State Conservatory of Music “C. Monteverdi ”of Bolzano; Matias Piñeira, international soloist and first horn of the Münchener Philharmoniker; ParideCanu, first horn of the Petruzzelli Theater Orchestra in Bari; Vincent Lepape, international soloist and first trombone of the Orchestra of the Teatro Regio in Turin and Zoltan Kiss, international solo trombone also a member of Mnozil Brass; Alessandro Fossi, international soloist tuba and professor of the 'C. Monteverdi 'of Bolzano and Roland Szentpáli, international soloist, principal tuba of the Hungarian National Philharmonic and teacher of the Franz Liszt Academy. Soprano Sabina von Walther, international soloist who made her debut in the role of Asterio in Antonio Salieri's famous Europe at the Scala in Milan, under the direction of Riccardo Muti, chosen in 2007 by Zubin Mehta for the role of Freia in the Wagnerian Ring of Valencia. The evening program also includes performances by the Italian Brass Ensemble directed by M ° Benucci and by the Ensemble Dante, directed by M ° Øystein Baadsvik.
