Giotto's Divine Brass

Tuesday 11 July


Santa Maria Novella Basilica – Piazza Santa Maria Novella


Recitals of the Soloists of the Festival

* in collaboration with the “Amici del Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino” Association

IBW 2017 Soloists: Francisco “Pacho” Flores (Trumpet), Sergej Nakariakov (Trumpet and Flugelhorn), Luca Benucci (Horn), Jamie Williams (Trombone), Jonathan Reith (Trombone) and Andrea Severi (Organ)

The Santa Maria Novella Basilica, custodian of Giotto's crucifix since the 1200s, will be the stage where the Soloists of the Festival will perform in Recital, accompanied by Maestro Andrea Severi on the Organ, designed by Daniele Paoli, in a musical journey of heavenly musicianship that bonds with the power and presence of the Divine. The soloists will play with light and color, harmony and dissonance, just as Giotto and other contrasting artists, unearthing and revisiting elements of the Renaissance, interpreted by the stars of the Brass firmament.
