Palermo - Sollima and the N-ICE CELLO
Quando?Inizio: Venerdì 21:00 (09 Febbraio)
Fine: Sabato 19:30 (10 Febbraio)
On Friday February 9th at 9.00 pm and Saturday February 10th at 5.30 pm at the Politeama Garibaldi in Palermo, during the season of the Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana, Giovanni will play in world premiere a piece for Ice-Cello and orchestra, entitled "The N-Ice Cello Concert".
This performance is part of a project conceived by the musician and music manager Corrado Bungaro, who in 2007 invited Giovanni to the Val Senales’ glacier to perform in an igloo theater with an ice cello, along with other ice instruments built by the luthier-sculptor Tim Linhart. This idea will be retaken in 2018, in collaboration with the Muse Museum designed by the internationally renowned architect Renzo Piano in Trento: it will start again from the Dolomites Mountains, where the ice cello will be recreated, to reach the Politeama in Palermo, and everything will be documented in a film directed by Bungaro himself.
In program also the “Cello Concerto No. 2 in D major” by Joseph Haydn and the “Cello Konzert” by Friedrich Gulda, played by Giovanni with his cello "Francesco Ruggeri" (Cremona, 1679), of course.
