“Rome Chamber festival”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 giugno 2022

Roma. Dal 26 Giugno 2022 al 29 Giugno 2022 quattro imperdibili appuntamenti al Teatro Argentina per il “Rome Chamber festival” giunto alla sua XIX edizione. Un programma ogni sera diverso, eseguito da 42 musicisti di cui 35 giovanissimi provenienti da tutto il mondo, che spazierà dal barocco al contemporaneo, passando per Respighi, Stravinsky, Philip Glass, le canzoni di Broadway e di David Bowie. Gli artisti arrivano da: Canada, Cina, Corea del Sud, Germania, Francia, Italia, Malesia, Polonia, Regno Unito, Slovacchia e Stati Uniti d’America. Si cimenteranno a fianco di maestri del calibro di Robert McDuffie (ideatore e direttore artistico del Festival), Sara Mingardo, Nicholas Mann, Elena Matteucci, Ivano Zanenghi, Michael Barrett, Guglielmo Pellarin, Giorgio Fava, Luca Sanzò e molti altri. Numerosi anche gli arrangiamenti originali come quello commissionato per “I pini e le fontane di Roma” di Respighi, un doveroso omaggio all’infinita bellezza di Roma, brani di rara esecuzione come “Dumbarton Oaks” di Stravinsky, le arie di Haendel dedicate al Marchese Ruspoli, composte a Roma agli inizi del ‘700. Molta attesa per la Suite dedicata a David Bowie e l’ormai classico Philip Glass con il concerto “Le quattro stagioni americane” da lui composto per Robert McDuffie e il suo magico violino Guarneri del Gesù. L’obiettivo del Festival, appuntamento ormai tradizionale nel panorama musicale italiano e internazionale, è di dimostrare come la distinzione tra musica colta, tradizionale e pop possa essere superata, grazie a innumerevoli punti di contatto.Tutto questo a partire dall’incontro tra le diverse generazioni, dai maestri già affermati, ai solisti alle prese con le sfide del mondo moderno, fino ai giovani talenti vincitori delle selezioni. Una formula che quest’anno vede aumentata la compagine “giovane”, grazie alla presenza di numerosi vincitori dello Young Professional Program, un programma che promuove i giovani professionisti della musica classica e del crossover.Il programma del Festival accosta senza inibizioni Schubert, Brahms e David Bowie, perché questo festival non ha mai inteso la musica da camera come ambito culturale riservato a soli raffinati intenditori, ma da sempre il Rome Chamber mescola i generi, senza snobismi e con uno spirito tipicamente americano. Uno spirito che McDuffie stesso sintetizza al meglio quando con le sue scelte artistiche ribadisce, anno dopo anno, la necessità di “abbattere l’idea che la musica classica sia un oggetto d’antiquariato”. La trasmissione del sapere classico, così, nel serrato dialogo tra Europa e Stati Uniti, entra nel terzo millennio.

The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for UK

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 ottobre 2010

London Glazier Hall: On a autumn day, behind the shadow of London Bridge, the most important Italian entrepreneurs and  bankers together with illustrious international economists sat down to assist at the thirty-second annual conference of The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK. The subject under discussion was about the path to recovery through structural changes and investments in infrastructure.  After the greeting of the Italian ambassador Alain Giorgio Maria Economides, the president of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK Leonardo Simonelli Santi opened the work session underlining that “recovery” became the magic word in the economic debate. Last year the conference was focusing on the global problem especially about the great discrepancy between the industrial countries and the emerging countries. This year the situation requires to  fix attention on the effective measures necessary to promote the growth of the economy.
In a picture of Italian industry could not miss a report of manufacturing sector. An interesting projections of the situation was explained by Lee Hopley, Chief Economist of the EEF. The analysis registered a fall of the production all around Europe between 2008 and 2010 due to  the crisis and the risk to recovery remains in some strategic decisions about public spending cuts, volatile exchange rates,  difficult credit conditions, skill shortages and supply chain condition. During the second session the main subject under discussion was infrastructure and regulation after Basilee Agreement. The session was opened by the speech of Vincent Boland, Lex Writer of the Financial Times, advising the responsibility of the country in a better understanding of affordable plans for recovery.
The strategic function played by the banks for the recovery of the economy  was underlined by Sir Win Bischoff Chairman of the Lloyds Banking Group. The reasons of stagnation are recognised in a low productivity, a low supply, in a problematic working age population and in a unclear credit problem. The state of works of the energy sector was explained by Simone Urbani Grecchi, the Chief Manager of BIIS (. The suggestions indicated for the path of recovering involve a reliable long term regulatory framework for the investors, the right combination of private and public funds in both PPP and PFI schemes and addressing the “real” economy needs and expectation.
The stimulating meeting was closed by the analysis of Paolo Romiti, Director of Impregilo SpA. “We need to do something useful for the people”. In this sense the reference point remains in the infrastructure because many countries need energy and environment development and alternative energies. Adequate infrastructure mean a very important social measure that eliminate the disomogeneity in the growth of the different countries. (Cinzia Cerbino italo europeo, abstract) (images)
