Who we are

 

The musical association Rive-Gauche Concerti was founded by the composer and pianist Riccardo Piacentini.

Formed with a regular status in 1988, it purposes the promotion of the 20th century and contemporary chamber music, with particular attention to the interaction between different art forms (literature, visual arts, photography, video-art, etc.). Its kind of programmation has so far expressed in seven forms: concerts, “atelier” (informal encounters between audience and artists), seminars, research and lectures, CD productions, "foto-musica con foto-suoni"© and museum soundscapes (“sonorizzazioni museali”).
