23 Feb. Milan students offer live concert.
Young musicians from Milan’s Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado will perform Locatelli’s The Weeping of Arianna (Concerto Grosso in E flat) in the city’s Castello Sforzesco on Saturday 23 January at 16.00.
The concert is the second in a series by talented young musicians from countries around the world, including Brazil, Argentina, Poland, Japan, France, Spain, Greece and Chile, studying at the city’s prestigious conservatory.
Pietro Antonio Locatelli was a composer and virtuoso violinist from Bergamo, a pupil of Corelli in Rome, who moved to Amsterdam, where he died in 1764. He was a predecessor of Paganini, and played a decisive role in the development of violin technique.
This concert will be under the baton of Stefano Montanari.
