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 This genuine artistic and experimental laboratory very often plays host to exhumations of unpublished scores, with excerpts from operas or operettas, chamber music or pieces scored for unusual forces.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 2017/18 season will open with a festival devoted to Antoine Reicha and end with a cycle of music by Charles Gounod. In addition to these festivals, homage will be paid to Lili Boulanger in March 2018 to mark the centenary of her death. For the Carnival season, the Palazzetto Bru Zane will present one of its new productions, drawing on the crazy and hilarious operetta repertory: 2 Bouffes en 1 acte.
The Romantici in erba programme will continue for the sixth consecutive season, providing an introduction to music for more than a thousand children from nursery, primary and secondary schools, through educational workshops and concerts specifically conceived for them. Alongside this, the series of family concerts on Sunday afternoons will present seven events all through the year, for the delight of children and adults alike!
