Musée d'Orsay: Torniamo all'antico e sarà un progresso

Torniamo all'antico e sarà un progresso

Just for a change, let us make way for ancient Italian music, to remind us that the Italians were not the last, in the second half of the nineteenth century, to rediscover the greatness of their musical traditions, from the Renaissance to the Baroque period, and to publish and perform it. They took inspiration from it to create contemporary works and to reflect on a revival of "pure" music that could challenge the predominance of the operatic repertoire.
Under the auspices of Verdi's statement in 1871 – "Let us return to the past: that will be progress" – we will hear nine concerts of ancient music to remind us how indebted we are to the Generazione dell'80 (musicians born in the 1880s), the publication and the revival through adaptations of the great names of Italy's musical past: to Gian Francesco Malipiero for the first modern editions of the works of Monteverdi, to Alfredo Casella for those of the Florentine masters of the 14th century and to Scarlatti, to Ildebrando Pizzetti for the Italian repertoire of the 15th and 16th centuries, and to Ottorino Respighi for the adaptation of the music for violin by Locatelli, Tartini, Vivaldi and Porpora, among others.
