EN ROSE (NEUE ROSA LIEDER) a Berlino

Il progetto dei PINK SONGS riviaggia all’estero, finalmente! Il 1° dicembre 2020 ore 20 è al BKA Theater di Berlino per la storica rassegna di musica contemporanea “Unerhörte Musik”. Ecco il programma così come inviato nella lingua esperanto del pianeta.

En rose (Neue rosa Lieder)
A Duo Alterno’s project with new music by Italian women composers

Duo Alterno
Tiziana Scandaletti
soprano
Riccardo Piacentini
piano

Neue rosa Lieder is a Duo Alterno’s project whose first idea was born in 2019. More than thirty pieces written by Italian women composers and dedicated to the Duo Alterno were collected for several concert programs on the same theme and performed, till now, in Finland, Sweden, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala, Algeria, Argentina, Germany. From time to time the title was: Pink Songs, Canciones en rosa, Chansons en rose… and now Neue rosa Lieder, according to the language of each country. In this version, designed ad hoc for Berlin, there will be two first performances of Carla Rebora and Carla Magnan. What can be interesting is that the various women composers involved in this project come from many parts of Italy. In Berlin there will be pieces by composers from Milan (Rossella Spinosa, Marcela Pavia and Sonia Bo), Asti (Carla Rebora), Turin (Maria Radeschi), Carla Magnan (Genua), Rome (Elisabetta Capurso), L’Aquila (Roberta Vacca), Ascoli Piceno (Ada Gentile). So we can say that the project, in this Berlin version, involves six Italian regions with two first performances and a large range of aestethic positions.
