The saxophonist Federico Mondelci and the accordionist Simone Zanchini will undertake a ‘Latino Mediterraneo’ journey on Wednesday 12 August (9.15 pm) in Codigoro, at the suggestive courtyard of the Pomposa Abbey.
A concert that will bring together the best of the instruments of these two artists, both known for their intense international concert activity.
Mondelci will open the program with the complicity of a great protagonist of contemporary jazz, Javier Girotto, with Aires, the author of reference in the reinterpretation of tango, and will then go to Spain with Pedro Iturralde’s Czardas, a tribute to traditional Hungarian dances. We move to Cuba with Paquito D’Rivera’s Vals Venozolano, and then to Brazil with the indefinable creative and multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal who on this occasion will be honored with the short Chorino Pra Ele from the 1976 album Slaves Mass, which will introduce the melancholy of the Argentine Ariel Ramirez with the song written in 1969 for Alfonsina Storni, a farewell song for the suicidal poet in the waves of the Mar de la Plata. The concert programme will be closed with two pieces often present in various festival events: Oblivion and Libertango by Piazzolla, which appear in various programmes of this musical season, an opportunity to appreciate different talents and instruments in dialogue with a great classic.
