The international festival ‘Trame Sonore’ is 10 years old, conceived by the artistic director Carlo Fabiano, who has been the soul of the Mantua Chamber Orchestra for 40 years. The anniversary will be celebrated from 1 to 5 June next with an unprecedented plot called ‘one2one’, which offers concerts for a single spectator in the cave of the Secret Garden of Palazzo Te. The protagonists of these performances are the violinists Nurit Stark, Stephen Waarts and Francesco Senese, the clarinetist Pablo Barragan and the cellists Miriam Prandi and Giovanni Gnocchi. To win the concerts, an online auction is active at one2one.bidinside.com. Conceived as an original fundraising initiative, made possible by the sensitivity and generosity of the artists involved, the auction includes a minimum stake of 1,000 euros and allows you to win an experience that includes, in addition to the private concert, the access pass to the concerts of the festival, a night in one of the best hotels in the historic center of Mantua and a gourmet dinner in one of the reference restaurants of the very rich local food and wine.
More than 300 musicians from around the world will invade the city of music, in every public and private place of art (keeping their fulcrum in the halls of the Doge’s Palace), intertwining in other 17 plots. As every year, some of the best chamber musicians on the international scene will converge on Mantua, such as the guest of honor Alfred Brendel, the artist in residence Alexander Lonquich, engaged in the role of pianist and conductor, Ian Bostridge, Ilya Gringolts, Stephen Waarts, Miariam Prandi, the violinists Marco Rizzi, Jonian Ilias Kadesha and Barnabas Kelemen, the violists Lawrence Power, Danusha Waskiewicz, Danilo Rossi and Katalin Kokas, the cellists Nicolas Altstaedt, Vashti Hunter and Giovanni Gnocchi, the double bass player Franco Petracchi, the clarinetists Pablo Barragan and Reto Bieri, the pianists Andrea Lucchesini, Gabriele Carcano, Andrea Rebaudengo, Alessandro Stella and Gloria Campaner, the Kelemen and Oistrakh string quartets, the octet of the Berliner Philharmonker, Ensemble Zefiro and, of course, the Mantua Chamber Orchestra.
