WATER MUSIC 


Main Event for Soprano, 12 Brass Soloists and Two Brass Orchestras by Enjott Schneider

World Premiere performance, commissioned by the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino


Conductors: Alain Trudel, Roger Bobo, Dale Clevenger

Soprano: Eva Lind

* in collaboration with the Associazione Ponte Vecchio, Società Canottieri of Firenze and Cultural Association “I Renaioli”

The Arno river and Ponte Vecchio will be the backdrop to the performance of a world premiere piece dedicated to Giotto and to the Brass world. This event has been a prominent presence for the past three years, thanks to its originality, historic location and the impression it leaves on the international audience. The composition, commissioned by the Festival, has been entrusted to noted composer Enjott Schneider. From his pen, "Water Music" was given life. 

The performance of this work will be executed by 18 soloists who, under the direction of Maestro Dale Clevenger, will play on board the historic boats of the Renaioli. They will unite with two Brass Orchestras, the first, with 50 musicians, will play from the Ponte Vecchio, under the direction of Maestro Roger Bobo. The second, with 40 musicians, will be directed by Maestro Alain Trudel from the riverbanks of the Arno at the Canottieri Social Club. Embellishing the performance will be the lyrical soprano voice of Eva Lind, star of lyric Opera, who, also from Ponte Vecchio, will be the herald of Giotto's artistic message.
