The fourth edition of La Grande Notte del Jazz (The Great night of Jazz) is scheduled for Saturday 5th June, the special event conceived by the Teatro Grande Foundation to welcome the most interesting proposals of jazz music, this year all coming from the national context.
The 2021 edition will also bring the audience outside the walls of the Teatro Grande, in the evocative atmosphere of the courtyard of Palazzo Broletto. In addition, the various concerts that make up the event can be freely chosen by the audience.
The musical marathon on 5th June will begin at 4.00 pm at the Teatro Grande with the first concert with two bands performing that in recent years have distinguished themselves in the national context. First to go on stage will be the musicians of the Take off ensemble – Daniele Richiedei violin, Giulio Corini double bass, Fulvio Sigurtà trumpet, Gabriele Rubino clarinet, Massimiliano Milesi tenor sax, Maurizio Rinaldi guitar and electronics, Giacomo Papetti electric bass, Emanuele Maniscalco drums and synthesizers – with the Double Voices project. After a short technical break, the concert will continue with the all-female duo O-Janà – Ludovica Manzo (vocals) and Alessandra Bossa (piano, electronics) – interpreters of a musical project that combines electronics, improvisation and songwriting in a refined and original way.
Simultaneously, at 5.00 pm, the concert of the Ghimel trio will be held in the courtyard of Palazzo Broletto, composed of the musicians Elias Nardi (in oud, the Arabic lute), Daniele Di Bonaventura (at the bandoneon) and Ares Tavolazzi (at the electric bass). In the evening, again in the courtyard of Palazzo Broletto, the concert will be held at 8.00 pm with the duo Francesco Guerri (cello) and Fabrizio Puglisi (piano) performing in the first part; in the second we will listen to Silvia Bolognesi Young Shouts with the musicians Emanuele Marsico (trumpet and vocals), Attilio Sepe (alto sax), Silvia Bolognesi (double bass and compositions) and Sergio Bolognesi (drums).
The last appointment of La Grande Notte del Jazz 2021 is scheduled at the Teatro Grande at 9.00 pm with the concert of the Franco D’Andrea New Things trio. Next to the leader are the young Friulian trumpeter Mirko Cisilino and the Veronese guitarist Enrico Terragnoli, adventurous dean of six strings and electronics.
The 2021 edition of The Great Night of Jazz could not miss a further focus with Franco D’Andrea, given the richness and intensity of his artistic career. For this reason, the famous pianist has been asked to give a Lectio Magistralis to be held on Saturday morning 5th June at 12.00 at the Pietro da Cemmo Hall of the Luca Marenzio Conservatory. During the Lectio Magistralis Maestro Franco D’Andrea will deepen the theme of the Interval Areas, the central topic of his artistic research and musical production. A free appointment (with compulsory registration through the teatrogrande.it site starting from Thursday 27th May) that jazz music lovers will certainly not be able to miss. The meeting will also be broadcast live on the Facebook page of the Luca Marenzio Conservatory.
To participate in La Grande Notte del Jazz, from Thursday 20th May, the audience can purchase tickets for individual events at the Teatro Grande Box Office or online on the teatrogrande.it or vivaticket.com websites.
The Grande Notte del Jazz is a project of the Fondazione del Teatro Grande in Brescia created with the artistic collaboration of Emanuele Maniscalco and Luigi Radassao.
