We report with great pleasure the event “Antologica Micrologus per Adolfo”. It is an evening in memory of Adolfo Broegg, musician, composer and founder of the ensemble Micrologus. The evening is organized on the occasion of the death of the musician, appeared April 23, 2006, and will focus on a series of documents concerning him: by video excerpts from recordings of world tours, up to listening to his performances and compositions or the vision of photographic documents. The appointment is at 21.15 in Spello, Auditorium of the European Studies Center of Medieval Music Adolfo Broegg. The career of Broegg, as many of the readers of these pages know well, has been central to the development of a research and revived the ancient and, in particular, medieval music. After graduating in classical guitar, in fact, Broegg began to specialize on stringed instruments of the entire area of the Mediterranean, and then further, working with scholars and performers, the medieval music, both musicological and interpretation. With Micrologus – ensemble today among the most influential in the field of early Italian and European music, who recently released a double CD to celebrate the thirty-year career – has produced a rich discography. So how conspicuous are the solo productions or in collaboration with other artists of the early music and more. Broegg has turned part of its activities to teaching, taking courses in institutes and private schools in Italy and abroad. In this context, we recall his seminars held at the Cité de la Musique in Paris, at the Centre for Research on Medieval Music in Royaumont and as part of the International Courses of Italian Foundation for Ancient Music of Urbino.
The evening in his honor, organized by friends and colleagues who run – even in the wake of its activities – the Study Center that bears his name, is an important event for all those who have known Adolfo, but also for those who want to get closer to one the most important artists of the international music scene.
