Lerici Baroque Festival

PRESS RELEASE

Lerici Baroque Festival

21, 22, 23 April, 8.00 PM - 

Hotel Shelley, Castello di Lerici, Villa Marigola

 

While waiting for the new edition of the Lerici Music Festival, an international music festival born from the idea of Maestro Gianluca Marcianò with the aim of promoting the music and cultural vocation of the Gulf of Poets, Lerici will host on 21, 22 and 23 April a new musical and artistic experience that winks at the Renaissance and Baroque musical repertoire.

Respectively the Hotel Shelley, the Castle of Lerici and Villa Marigola will become in those days a suggestive setting for three evenings dedicated to famous pages of sacred and profane music composed between Italy and England in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Pieces by authors including Corelli, Vivaldi, Marenzio, Lasso, Cavalli, Purcell and Händel will be proposed, in fact, by performers such as the Baroque Ensemble of the G. Puccini Conservatory of La Spezia and the Vache Baroque Festival.

«Since the birth of the Lerici Music Festival, my goal has always been to propose musical events that, even outside the summer season, would contribute to making Lerici a centre of cultural tourism all year round. Thanks to the support of the newly founded Lerici Cultura Foundation, this is possible today. This first edition of the Lerici Baroque Festival was born from the collaboration with the Vache Baroque Festival, a reality that is enjoying great success in the United Kingdom. We will then celebrate together the ancient British and Italian music, an expression of two cultures that Lerici has met and loved over the centuries. And I would also like to thank the Puccini Conservatory of La Spezia for its collaboration in this new project». These are the words with which the artistic director of the LMF, Gianluca Marcianò describes the new venture dedicated to early music.
