#novecento is the review of musical narratives, from October 4th to December 21st, in which the musicians in first person tell their art, inspired by the musical anniversaries of the year.
While as always the first part of the year was dedicated to ancient music and the treasures of the museum collections, from October we return to make our usual journey to discover the music of the last century.
And we will start with an exceptional guest: from October 4th to November 3rd in the Museum’s Sala 7 you’ll find Leggero, the virtual reality installation dedicated to the unforgettable Skiantos leader Roberto “Freak” Antoni.
The second edition of Suoni in revolt – 1969/1979 – opens the series of musical narrations: from the revolt to John Travolta, four meetings curated by Luca Marconi and Silvia Testoni. 1969 is indeed a crucial year for music not only for Woodstock, but also for the debut of various groups that have entered the collective imagination: King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Crosby, Stills and Nash, as well as for the birth of the rock opera with Tommy of the Who and Miles Davis’ electric breakthrough. Ten years later the climate – musical and otherwise – has changed a lot: in the two-year period 78-79 Italy, tired of the “commitment” and satiated with politics, discovers the pleasure of disco dancing and rushes en masse to the great concerts in the halls and in the stadiums, starting from the triumphal tours of De André with the PFM and of Dalla and De Gregori.
Following the now classic appointments with the musical narratives of Jazz Insight: five protagonists of American music told from within, that is from the perspective of a jazz musician Emiliano Pintori in the company of the piano and his surprise “guests”.
The trait d’union between rock and jazz, the documentaries on the musicians of the 12th edition of Voices from the Beyond that, after the prologue of Wednesday 23 November at the Teatro S. Leonardo dedicated to Jaco Pastorius, moves to the museum for the projections on two real “fighting” musicians: Joni Mitchell and Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
But the autumn will also be dedicated to the contemporary “unprecedented” of ultimamusica and to the Museo (ri) Suona, the new experimental project in which we will invite musicians and singers to design three special sonatas visits in the exhibition halls, with period pieces and original soundtracks inspired by their “residence” in the museum.
