The Giuseppe Verdi Symphonic Orchestra of Milan, in collaboration with the Piccolo Teatro, will be performing in a two-concert review which examines some of the most important musical styles of recent centuries, from the father of dodecaphony Arnold Schönberg to the blending of contemporary sounds and traditional indigenous song.
The first concert is dedicated to the 20th century and will see the performance of Piano Concerto op.42 by Arnold Schönberg and Giardino Religioso di Bruno Maderna, conductor Pietro Borgonovo, with Pina Napolitano at the piano.
It is the beginning of a new twentieth century musical journey, Schönberg’s dodecaphony, presented here with the Concerto for piano and orchestra. This is accompanied by one of the last masterpieces by Maderna, who initially took many cues from Schönberg but progressively distanced himself completely. Giardino religioso, an intimate and poetical prayer, a blend of ephemeral images and violent lashes of temperament.
