Rome, August 1. (askanews) – The eagerly awaited appointment with Castelbuono Classica is back again this year, which will animate the ancient Madonite village of Castelbuono, in the province of Palermo, from 21 to 23 August, with a sixth edition entirely dedicated to chamber music and the usual attention to Sicilian interpreters and composers.
The protagonists of the three evening concerts, in the suggestive setting of the Cloister of San Francesco, will be Adriano Del Sal, an award-winning Friulian musician who will offer his solo guitar recital, the historic violin-flute duo formed by the brothers Francesco and Stefano Parrino, originally from Castelvetrano and both soloists of international level, and the talented cellist from Trapani Alessio Pianelli, who will go on stage together with the Oneiroi String Quartet. The two afternoon concerts (free admission) on 22 and 23 August, always aimed at enhancing emerging talents, will be entrusted to the Clarinet Quartet L’ebano sonoro and to the percussionist Sergio Calì.
Also in this edition Castelbuono Classica renews its traditional link with the other arts. On the occasion of the three musical days, starting from Sunday 16 August, Putia Art Gallery in Castelbuono will host the exhibition of the Palermo photographer Luca Savettiere, some of which works have been used to define the visual communication of the event. The shots, which the artist made in 2018 in Cuba, tell the theme of the journey, both personal and collective, sometimes real and metaphorical to others, and acquire even more evocative force in a period in which the possibility of traveling and discovering different cultures and places is limited and, in some cases, completely inhibited.
Castelbuono Classica is organized by Moger Arte e Cultura, with the patronage and support of the Municipality of Castelbuono and the Sicilian Region – Tourism, Sports and Entertainment Association and with the collaboration of Almendra Music, Putia Art Gallery, Officine Grafiche, Primo Spazio and Adidì.
