Rome Baroque Festival 2019 – XII Edition

24.11.2019 - 21.12.2019

Consistent with the principles that inspired the formation and development of the BAROQUE FESTIVAL ROMA, also the 12th Edition of 2019, scheduled from November 24th to December 21st 2019, will present a cycle of concerts and musicological meetings in the places of Baroque Rome. An integration between music of the Italian tradition of the 16th – 17th and 18th centuries and noble palaces, churches, oratories and monumental libraries of the Eternal City, intact and well preserved, and, therefore, able to transmit to the contemporary society the festive ritual and the concrete and immanent spirit of the great Italian baroque tradition.

The Festival will open with the first performance in modern times of a Neapolitan Mass by Antonio Nola. A precious manuscript recovered from the Library of the Gerolamini of Naples and executed by the Ensemble Festina Lente at the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Rome (24 November).

A rich calendar of musicological concepts and conferences will follow, among which the unpublished musical programs dedicated to Francesco Gasparini (19 December), Giovanni Bononcini (2 December), Francesco Severi and Virgilio Mazzocchi (11 December), the eighteenth-century music preserved in the Casanatense Library of Rome (12 December), the Cantate by Benedetto Marcello (15 December) and a program entirely dedicated to the music of Salvatore Sciarrino (27 November) presented in absolute premiere. An apparently provocative presence but, on the contrary, an expression of an artistic world that re-elaborates languages ​​of the past, updating them in the contemporary world.
The Festival also brings music into the spaces of everyday life, creating a crossover concert between jazz and baroque with the jazz trio of ‘Riccardo Fassi Analog Trio’ and ‘Ricercare Antico’ (Liceo ‘T. Mamiani – 17 December).

The event, conceived by the artistic director Michele Gasbarro, is supported by the General Directorate of Entertainment from the Live of the Mibact, Lazio Region, Embassy of France at the Holy See and the Center Culturel “Saint Louis de France”, this year further consolidates the his artistic bond with the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, the Center for Studies on the Italian Cantata, the Publishing Society of Musicology, the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia, the University of Mainz and Rism.

Thanks to these partnerships, the Festival wants to be not only the contemporary place of a ritual fruition of Baroque Music, but a sort of collective laboratory of an anthropological history, which never ceases to amaze the contemporary world for its capacity for social inclusion and symbolic compatibility of differences.
