On Thursday 8 August from 17:30, LakeComo International Music Festival 2019, organized by Associazione Amadeus Arte, presents 1001 Notte (Joonas Pitkänen, Director; Jugend Sinfonie Orchester Bern), in the beautiful location of Villa Carlotta.
We are at the beginning of the eighteenth century when the great Arabist scholar Antoine Galland was the first to collect and translate a group of Arab manuscripts. It was the beginning of the fortune of the Thousand and One Nights and of the love for the Near East that will be reflected in European arts in various forms including the famous symphonic work of Rimsky-Korsakov. Still in the field of the fantastic that spreads so much in the 18th century is the other work: Peer Gynt by the Norwegian composer Grieg which contains among the most famous pieces of the symphonic repertoire.
In case of bad weather the concert will be held in the Auditorium Scuole Nuove, Via Provinciale, Tremezzina, Ossuccio.
