Stresa Festival Hall: Naples in the late 1500 and early 1600 and the #classic of Alëna’s violin

A appreciated return to the Festival is that of Vincenzo Capezzuto, last year engaged in the Passione Secondo Matteo by Bach and this year brings on the stage of Stresa Festival Hall the Neapolitan tradition, accompanied by L’Arpeggiata with Christina Pluhar on the theorbo and conducting. A unique voice of its kind and an ensemble that has rediscovered the “street” music, the “blues” of the past: tarantella, pizzicarelle, ciaccona and rhythms that were repeated continuously, always the same, become the vehicle to tell us the life stories of Naples of the late ‘500 and early ‘600.

Alëna Baeva

Among the violin stars of the new generation, Alëna Baeva is an artist who on stage can transform anything for the intensity, communicative, empathy and beauty of sound. In the music hall of the Festival, she proposes a classical program: on all the famous Sonata in A major by Franck, as well as pages by Schubert, Janáček and Rachmaninoff. Dmitry Ablogin will accompany her on the piano.
