Sunday, July 25, 2021 - 21.30 for the Villa Olmo Festival is organized the show "The Great Romanticism".
The Antonio Vivaldi Orchestra was founded in December 2011 and in a short time became a stable reality in the Italian music scene, boasting collaborations with major concert seasons, festivals and institutions of the country. Lorenzo Passerini and Francesco Manara, close-knit interpreters to this ensemble, offer a concert that opens with a fairy-tale atmosphere, which gradually bursts into all its contemporaneity, in "FM", Rhapsody for violin and orchestra composed by the young compositional talent Piergiorgio Ratti (born in 1991) in 2014, and premiered the year of composition, with Lorenzo Passerini on the podium of the Orchestra Antonio Vivaldi with Francesco Manara on violin.
The Concerto continues with the great romantic impetus of the Concerto in D major for violin and orchestra op. 35 by Pyotr Il'ič Tchaikovsky and closes with the heroic notes of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in F major op. 93, composed in 1811-12, in a program that addresses more than 200 years of compositional technique, revealing the new generation of an Italian compositional school, Russian romanticism in one of its most courtly periods, and finally Beethovenian romanticism of the First Vienna School.
