COR(D)E D'ITALIA

5 CENTURIES / 5 GUITARS

A journey inside the Italian

repertoire for solo guitar

The musical recollection starts with the Renaissance time and the new-born 4 strings guitar, to go to the aires and dances from the Baroque period. The virtuosistic pieces inspired by Italian Opera will bring you back to the classical era, passing through the evoking melodies of romanticism. An homage to the most important composer for guitar of the past Century, Castelnuovo Tedesco, then contemporary soundscapes and American finger-style will mark the end of this journey.
