Molinelli Estate Reloaded
Young audience workshops Comment ça marche ?
There are no more seasons? Haydn, Tchaikovsky or Milhaud as well as Max Richter and Philip Glass would tell you otherwise. Using traditional instruments, Andrés Gabetta's group offers a comparative reading of Vivaldi's famous violin concertos, a pastoral representation of the cycle of nature, and Piazzolla's Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas, an evocation of the life of an inhabitant of the shantytowns of Buenos Aires. Without literally echoing the Venetian, the Argentinian, master of tango, does not deprive himself of some references to the 18th century in certain fugue passages, jerky melodies or specific harmonic turns. Finally, Estate reloaded will allow bandoneonist Mario Stefano Pietrodarchi to take part in the finale of the Red Priest’s Summer, revisited by Roberto Molinelli.
