During the Schubert Festival 2017 in The Hague (18 & 19 February) they will also be performing this composer’s famous string quintet, for which they will be joined by cellist Quirine Viersen.

1 mei 2016

cinemia in concertoAs an eclectic and versatile musician, Gioele Muglialdo has mastered a repertoire ranging from all forms of classical music to musical, film scores, jazz and pop music. A fundamental aspect of his musical career, which in this project is a major factor, is his long-time experience in the particular technique of synchronizing music and images, without any technical equipment.

It places him among the exclusive number of conductors specialized in cine-concert, screening of films with an orchestral accompaniment. Gioele Muglialdo is, at the moment, the only Italian conductor skilled in this repertoire.

His future cine-concert engagements in 2016 include Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" in the German city of Wolfsburg and his debut at the Monte Carlo Opéra in 2016, at the prestigious Salle Garnier, performing Fritz Lang's masterpiece "Metropolis".

Quartetto di Venezia & Giorgio Cini Foundation

14 april 2016

pr qdvIn collaboration with the Quartetto di Venezia and Asolo Musica, the Giorgio Cini Foundation has organised performances of the complete string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven in six public concerts in 2016: three in the first semester (23 April, 21 May and 25 June) and three in the second (17 September, 22 October and 16 November). The aim is to offer audiences an exceptional artistic experience in the new auditorium on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, created by the stunning conversion of the Squero, a former boatyard rebuilt on the island during the historic restoration in the 1950s.

The series is also part of the goal to set up a long-term project aimed at creating a permanent series of concerts featuring string quartets. The idea is to hold a series of events with an international appeal involving not only performances but also masterclasses, courses and advanced workshops.
