Ten years ago the last “Pavarotti and Friends” was performed in Modena, Italy.
Ten years later, taking this stunning experience of contamination between classical singers and popular music as a starting point, Armonia Mediterranea is delighted to present in London the concert:
"Celebrando la canzone italiana"
a mix of Italian traditional songs performed by eminent Mediterranean tenors and sopranos.
The cast includes Antonio Pappano Riccio conductor and Piano player and the tenors: Gianni Leccese, Domenico Colonna, Yuri Sabatini, Fernando Messulam and the sopranos: Angela Cuoccio and Christina Petrou. All is put in music by The Patrick Noronha Orchestra.
Works by Mascagni, Bixio, Di Capua, Tosti , Murolo e Tagliaferri.
The location is the magic St Peter’s Italian Church on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his consecration.
The concert is non-profit and aims to raise funds to keep the musical life of the church alive.
