NOTTURNI ITALIANI
Great Music Made in Italy

XXII EDIZIONE
Castello Sforzesco
Cortile delle Armi
Milano
16.07.15-07.08.15

The XII Notturni Festival Edition has been updated for the most important event of the year, EXPO 2015. The trait d’union of this new edition is easily recognizable by its title “Notturni Italiani”: a showcase of the Italian excellence in music from 1600 to the present day, which is admired and recognized as typically Italian all over the world.

More ... From Operas to Vivaldi and the new Italian composers such as Einaudi, Allevi, Picco; from the great hits of the 60s’ to the philological revival of the Neapolitan tradition, going through the unforgettable soundtracks by Ennio Morricone. In the end, an amazing music and dancing Renaissance event at the time of Leonardo Da Vinci, inspired to his “Festa del Paradiso”, conceived at Sforza Castle on commission by Ludovico il Moro in 1490.

The last edition of Notturni traditional concerts has been accompanied by Notturni Social Music, the meetings for amateur musicians who want to spend a summer night, playing music together. They were directed by some of the guest artists of the concert season and gained an unexpected success. An unforeseen extra has been added to their first aim of bringing back music to the audience, getting him more and more involved in the live event: the Social’s attendance has become a show itself. Like a rehearsal open to the audience, it reveals offstage music to unauthorized personnel, it unveils musical structures and “tricks” of the trade, giving the opportunity to live the prepararation of the event from within.

There are four Social Music events during the current concert season: Social Strings dedicated to strings with Francesco De Angelis, Social Brass for brass with the Gomalan Brass, Social Vocal dedicated to singing with Alti e Bass and, in the end, a new entry: Social Early Dance dedicated to old dances curated by Letizia Dradi, instructor and dancer of La Rossignol dancing company. Every Social Music event is free.
