Giochi di ottone

MITO SettembreMusica 2022

Touring production

After two years with a reduced format, the MITO SettembreMusica festival returns with an edition entitled luci that provides an imaginative exploration of the relationship between music and light, and between listening and seeing. 

Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato

This relationship is at times rendered explicit by the composers themselves – indications such as chiaro or scuro or luminoso can be found on many scores from differing eras and places –, and at times from external reflections that emerge during the performances themselves.
Of the more than one hundred concerts taking place in Milan and Turin, six are hosted by the Teatro Studio Melato, covering the extensive musical repertoire; from the languid colours of Purcell and Handel to the radiant light of Haydn and Mozart; from the vivid contrasts of Beethoven and Brahms to the dazzling brightness of twentieth-century and contemporary compositions by Astor Piazzolla and John Adams.
The musicians of the Gomalan Brass Quintet really know how to have fun: whether they’re playing Baroque music, transcriptions of arias from operas or fantasies based on masterpieces of the 20th century, you’ll always see smiles on their faces. During the concert Brass Games, their five instruments transform into sparkling torches that fill venues with good vibes.

The concert takes place at the Teatro Studio Melato, on Saturday 10 September, 5 PM
