After the preview on Sunday 19th June, the chamber music festival “I tramonti di Tinia” in Sutri (VT) starts tomorrow at 7pm and continues until Sunday 26th. The second edition of the Festival includes six concerts that will boast the participation of artists of international caliber such as Beatrice Rana, Timotheos Petrin, Kevin Spagnolo, Roman and Milena Simovic, David and Diego Romano, Mario Montore, Alessio Pianelli and many others. In addition, the Avos Project Academy – organizer of the event – will offer some of its best young talents the opportunity to perform with already established names: among others, two emerging bands, the Klem Quartet and the Ares Trio. The focus of the Festival will be the music of Eastern Europe with a program that typesets pieces by Tchaikovsky, Stravinskij, Rachmaninoff, Chačaturjan and Šostakóvič, but also by authors who are less performed in the Italian musical tradition, such as Sergej Taneev and Nikolai Kapustin.
The first concert on Friday 24 at 7 pm will be held on the panoramic terrace overlooking the vast hazelnut fields of the Azienda Agricola Spada and sees the musicians of the Ares Trio engaged in the Trio in F min. for violin, cello and piano by Babadžanjan and Mirei Yamada (violin), Timotheos Petrin (cello) and Mario Montore (piano) in the famous Trio in A min. for violin, cello and piano by Tchaikovsky. On Saturday 25th at 11 am at Villa Savorelli the Klem Quartet will perform the Rêverie Orientale n. 2 for clarinet and string quartet Op. 14 by Glazunov with Kevin Spagnolo on clarinet and String Quartet n. 8 in C min, Op. 110 by Šostakóvič. In closing David Romano, Mirei Yamada, Carlotta Malquori, Elena Pavoncello, Riccardo Savinelli, Carlotta Libonati, Matthias Balzat and Diego Romano, will take the stage to perform the explosive Octet for strings, Op. 11 by Šostakóvič.
On Saturday 25th at 7 pm, again at the Azienda Agricola Spada, the world-famous pianist Beatrice Rana will be the protagonist and special guest of the concert organized in support of the Alba Onlus Association. The proceeds from the event will be donated to the “Adopt a room” project in the large Casa Di Peter Pan, the structure that houses children with cancer and their families from all over Italy and with which Alba Onlus has been collaborating for some time now through various charitable initiatives. The pianist from Salento, who in recent months is engaged in concerts in the most prestigious concert halls in the world, for the special occasion will perform the Quintet in G min. for string quartet and piano, Op. 57 by Šostakóvič together with an ensemble formed by Roman Simovic, Mirei Yamada, Milena Simovic and Diego Romano.
Composed in 1940, the Quintet represents an emblematic work of the Russian composer who in recent years moved away from youthful experimentalism to leave room for a clear writing, flowing even in the contrapuntal interweaving and timbric sobriety. The program continues with the Trio Op. 86 for flute, cello and piano by Kapustin, a Russian composer rarely performed on European billboards whose writing is strongly influenced by jazz and twentieth-century formalism. The Trio will be performed by Lorenzo Minelli, Leonardo Ascione and Fabio Fornaciari. Completing the mosaic will be The Trio for violin, clarinet and piano by Chačaturjan, performed by Kevin Spagnolo, Matteo Baldoni and Matteo Canalicchio.
The final day of Sunday 26 includes two concerts: at 11 am, in the hazelnut grove of the Spada Company, David Romano and Carlotta Malquori will perform the Sonata in C major for two violins, Op. 56 by Prokof’ev and Mirei Yamada, Matteo Baldoni, Matteo Introna and Alessio Pianelli the String Quartet n. 2 in D major by Borodin. At 7 pm, last sunset in music over the hazelnut valley with Salvatore Terracciano and Adriano Leonardo Scapicchi performing the Sonata Op. 94 for flute and piano by Prokof’ev while David Romano, Gloria Santarelli, Carlotta Libonati, Alessio Pianelli and Massimo Spada will compete in the Quintet in G min. for string quartet and piano, Op. 30 by Taneev.
