On 25 and 26 July back the show “Music for sunset”, designed by the late Sergio Piazzoli and curated by Umbra’s music Author Association. As readers of these pages know, the festival is one of the latest initiatives promoted by Piazzoli (prematurely disappeared about a year ago) and, for the originality of the scenario, as well as the careful selection of the shows, immediately encountered a broad support, both from the public and critics. “Music for sunset” takes place on the shores of Lake Trasimeno Maggiore Island. In one frame, ie, suspending the time of performance and envelops the audience in a totally unique atmosphere. The idea of Piazzoli can be traced precisely this set of elements: the Maggiore rarefied and decadent landscape, the bright colors of the lake at sunset, the thick air that extends over the water and on the banks that become the scene of exhibitions , a suspension dream that lasts the time of a concert. This year the program is particularly rich and includes the presence of extraordinary artists, although very different from each other. It starts Saturday at 17:00 with a number of initiatives, some of which organized in collaboration with Festambiente Umbria, to get to Prato of the rectory, where at 20.15 will perform Francesco Bianconi of Baustelle. Before his performance, accompanied on piano by Paolo Durante, the songwriter will entertain a conversation with writer John Dozzini. At 21.30 will perform Sandro Joyeux and to 22.00, in Piazza San Francesco, you can attend “My name is David – Film music wall edition”, with video processing by RetroFilm Festival and music by Palenque Pacal Vinyl. Sunday 26 are provided many shows (for which see the full program). To note the duo Iva Bittova and Paolo Angeli, scheduled at 19:45 and the concert “Wind Hunter” by Lorenzo Rossi (piano).
