Composers Libetta, Sciortino, Montalti, Capogrosso, Beethoven, Liszt and others. Pianist Francesco Libetta
For the second year running the Akadèmia will be celebrating music day at the start of the summer by playing host to a production combining dance and music.
The Collettivo di Danza ensemble performed their first concert at the Baths of Diocletian in Rome. The repertoire included pieces for four hands and ballads, including in particular a piano and electronic music piece specially adapted for the occasion by Vittorio Montalti, for the duo of Libetta and Galimberti.
Choreographer and dancer Stefania Ballone was to join the project later on. In this regard each member of the group experiments and explores the boundaries between disciplines, transcending their main traditional professions.
Taking the distinctive characteristics of the group as his starting point, Orazio Sciortino created Coreofonia, a musical piece in which the dancer is expected to alternate choreography with a piano performance and soloist, four-handed at all times. The piece was first performed back in April in Naples.
Similarly, Sortilège is another of the group’s compositions likewise tailored to its artistic peculiarities, written and dedicated to the Fabio Massimo Capogrosso duet and presented for the first time in June 2019 in Taranto.
Their most notable musical performances include the concert at the Teatro Gerolamo in Milan, where the duet were joined by a large group of dancers from the corps de ballet of the Teatro alla Scala. Mention should likewise be made of the recital in Bari for the Camerata Musicale, in Miami, and for the Festival della Valle d’Itria in Martina Franca.
Their own recitals include noteworthy concerts at the Liberty building in Milan, the opening of the Goldonetta concert season in Livorno, the concert at the Cagliari Auditorium, in Japan, and lastly their Florida performance.
