Tomorrow evening there will be a world premiere of a piece by Giuseppe Verdi, in his 200th Anniversary year.
Flautist Claudio Ferrarini was rummaging through the library in Verdi’s home Villa di Sant’Agata (more commonly known as Villa Verdi), where Verdi often made music with Antonio Barezzi, president of the Busseto Philharmonic Society. Ferrarini found many scores that were owned by Verdi, and among them a transcription by the great composer of a popular piece from the 1860s: Bersagliera e Galop nel gran ballo Flick Flok.
Thanks to his heir, Carrara Verdi, Claudio Ferrarini, together with pianist Gregorio Nardi, will perform the piece which hasn’t been heard for more than a century at the Limen Studios in Milan.
30 May at 9pm – Limenmusic Studios, Milan
