SICILY, A WORLD OF MUSIC
21-27 July 2011 : A week of music at Ambronay with Leonardo García Alarcón.
Following the huge success of Michelangelo Falvetti's Il diluvio universale at the 31st Ambronay Festival, Leonardo García Alarcón plans to perform the work once again at the forthcoming Ambronay summer course.
Michelangelo Falvetti's oratorio will provide the prism through which we discover Sicily in its entirety, notably the monodies and madrigals of Sigismondo d'India, the unpublished oratorios of Alessandro Scarlatti and Buonaventura Rubino's outstanding Requiem.
Instrumental music will be well represented by the remarkable works of Pietro Del Buono and a large repertoire of sonatas and consort music in the new Neapolitan style.
This course is aimed at a new generation of talented young singers and instrumentalists who wish to work in the unique setting of Ambronay Abbey under the supervision of a first-rate team of tutors.
