bolognese is a music festival dedicated to the most relevant protagonists of
musical culture in Bologna, who were born or studied and operated there. A
festival dedicated to celebrated, less famous or unjustly forgotten authors, who
in any case have always been closely linked to the city. The performance of the
works is mostly entrusted to
musicians of Bolognese origin. The opening concert is dedicated to Alfeo Gigli
(1907-1994), composer and philosopher with a many-sided
fascinating personality . There will follow a concert of music for
mandolin and harpsichord by 18th
century philarmonic adademic composers, who are little known today but
were significant in the artistic panorama of their age. After a piano
concert with music by Antonio Belletti, a primary character in the Bolognese
musical life of the early 20th century, by Luigi Ferrari-Trecate, Chairman of
the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna from 1955 to 1964, and by Francesco
Vatielli, who had been libriarian at the Musical Lycée for forty years
(1906-1946), there will follow an event dedicated to the composers who followed
one after the other at the direction of the Bologna Conservatoire (ex- Musical
Lycée) between 1915 and 1965, among whom Alfano, Nordio, Guerrini, Desderi and
Liviabella. The next event, a homage to composer Adone Zecchi, recently deceased,
will have the participation of some of the most prestigious Bolognese musicians
in an exceptional concert. The sixth concert of the Festival is dedicated to the
repertoire of the Bolognese philarmonic academic pianists of the 1800s, with
music by Corticelli, Dohler and Fumagalli, while the following concert will be
by the Ensemble Respighi in Bologna performing music by academic composers of
various ages. The Festival will closes with a concert dedicated to the Bolognese
piano school of the 1800s, with music by Golinelli, Rossini and Martucci.
