THE FLOWERS OF MUSIC
Chamber music festival in Torino (Italy)
Organized by cultural association “Rassegna Musica”

ARTISTIC AND MUSICAL TARGETS
We think that the classical music repertoire is like a garden with marvelous flowers of any colour and size.
But unfortunately, many of them are hidden and,although they're wonderful, sometimes we can't see them.

We intend, in this festival, to discover these hidden masterworks of classic music...that are really marvelous "flowers of music".
The festival is mainly divided in 2 different categories of repertoire: 2 pianos and piano and string quartet / quintet
With 2 pianos
we present :
- the piano concertos in 2 pianos versions
(specially the most romantic ones)
- the orchestral works arranged for 2 pianos
(symphonies, ouvertures, symphonic poems and so on)
- 2 pianos rarities
- 2 pianos original repertoire

with piano and string quartet/quintet

we think we are living a new golden era for this kind of domestic concerts like we were again in the 18th or 19th centuries and this will become a very important part in the repertoire of future of musical programms. This kind of scores allow pianists and musicians to play also in small concert halls or in private houses the most known repertoire of romantic piano concertos. The festival mainly present the piano concertos arranged for piano(original part ) and strings ( 2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello and 1 Dbass )The existing repertoire actually comprehends piano concertos from Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Mendelssohn, and few others.
It's our intention to promote the existing repertoire and also adding new arrangements of the most famous and performend romantic piano concertos into piano and string quintet.

These arrangements have been done by composers that collaborate with the cultural association “Rassegna Musica” and some arrangements have been done by me .
These chamber arrangements can give to pianists more and more opportunities to play because there is no need of the full orchestra but only a string quartet / quintet and there is no need of a big concert hall but a small one is more than enough and it’s also possible even to perform in private houses so, also for who organize, it's quite easier to do it. Besides, these scores can be very helpful ( also for advanced students but not only for them of course )in practicing piano concertos in more attractive and stimulating way.

“The flowers of music “ takes place inside the New Concert Hall in Air Palace Hotel in Leinì ( Torino , Italy ) and in the Concert Hall of the musical library “Andrea Della Corte “ Villa Tesoriera in Torino
