Calendar of concerts in Venice

 

The core activities of the Centre de Musique Romantique Française are located in Venice, in the setting of a seventeenth-century palazzo, richly decorated with stucco and frescoes and surrounded by a charming garden.

A season of some fifty events, including concerts, encounters with the artists, lectures and educational activities, is held in the concert hall of the Palazzetto Bru Zane, whose dimension of intimacy creates a very close relationship between artists and audience. This genuine artistic and experimental laboratory very often plays host to exhumations of unpublished scores, with excerpts from operas or operettas, chamber music or pieces scored for unusual forces. In this way the Centre’s team examines the interest of each work or composer and reflects on the best way of giving them wider diffusion.

The 2016/17 season will open with a festival devoted to Camille Saint-Saëns (nine concerts from 24 September to 3 November 2016) and end with a cycle of works by Fernand de La Tombelle (eight concerts between 8 April and 11 May 2017). In addition to these festivals, several programmes will pay tribute to Étienne-Nicolas Méhul (marking the bicentenary of his death) or to the composer Augusta Holmès. During the Carnival season, the Palazzetto Bru Zane will present the premiere, at the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista, of the satirical show Votez pour moi.

The Romantici in erba programme will continue for its fifth consecutive season, providing an introduction to music for more than a thousand children from the nursery and primary schools of the Veneto by means of educational workshops and concerts specifically conceived for them. Alongside this, the series of family concerts on Sunday afternoons will be expanded to six different programmes, for the delight of children and adults alike!
