Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini

Conductor: Riccardo Muti

Ancient Theatre, Wednesday 14th July 2021 @ 9.30pm

 

Musics by

  • Vincenzo Bellini > Symphony from Norma
  • Franz Schubert > Symphony no. 9 in C major “La Grande” D944

 

 

Founded by Riccardo Muti in 2004, the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra was named after one of the finest composers of all times, born in Italy but active all over Europe. This choice underlines the Orchestra’s vocation, combining a strong Italian identity with a natural inclination towards a European vision of music and culture. The Youth Orchestra, a privileged link between the conservatoires and the professional world, set up its residence in Piacenza, and elected the Ravenna Festival as its summer home. The young instrumentalists of the Cherubini Youth Orchestra are all under 30, and come from all over Italy. They were selected through audition by a committee of top musicians from prestigious European orchestras, headed by Riccardo Muti himself. Dynamism and continuous renewal are a distinctive feature of the Orchestra, and it is in this perspective that members are only appointed for a period of three years, after which they may start collaboration with a major professional orchestra.

Taormina Film Fest

67th edition

 

Friday 1st July 2021, Ancient Theatre @ 9.00pm

Screening of the film BRONTE: chronicle of a massacre that history books have never told

by Florestano Vancini – ITA, 1972, 126′
(Restoration by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia) ​

Free entrance ?

The film is in its original version with subtitles in English

 

 

The film, for economic reasons filmed in a village of the ex Yugoslavia), shows the bloody episodes that happened in Bronte (a Sicilian village at the foot of Mount Etna) in August 1860.

The work of Vancini did not get a large success of public but aroused a very lively discussion. Participated, between others, Angelo Solmi, Alberto Moravia, Mino Argentieri, Giuseppe Galasso and Paolo Mieli.

The film had a diffusion of some sort in the schools, as didactic material, use­ful to a better comprehension of the Risorgimento. Recently has been restored by the National Film Library with the unedited part of 14 minutes of scenes shot by Vancini and not previously assembled.
