The stories of life in Naples at the end of the 1500s and early 1600s.

The Festival is always happy to have the opportunity to get to know better some of the artistes who have grasped the Stresa ‘feeling’. One of these is Vincenzo Capezzuto, who arranged last year’s Passione secondo Matteo, and this year is back on the Stresa Festival Hall stage with the traditions of Naples.

His voice is unique of its kind, and here he is accompanied by the ensemble L’Arpeggiata with Christina Pluhar on the tiorba and conducting. They have rediscovered ‘street’ music, and the old ‘blues’ that used to be played on every possible occasion in everyday life.
There are tarantelle, pizzicarelle, chaconnes, and rhythms repeated over and over again, always the same.  They illustrate the best way to tell the stories of life in Naples at the end of the 1500s and early 1600s.
