celletticalAlessandra Celletti in Paris plays for Giorgio Andreotta Calò

Friday, October 24, at 17:33, at the concert hall of the Italian Institute of Culture in Paris, Alessandra Celletti, will perform an original composition for piano developed in collaboration with Giorgio Andreotta Calò, artist in residence at the Institute that dedicades to his work a retrospective exhibition evocatively titled “Sculpture, dead language.”

The collaboration between Giorgio Andreotta Calò and Alessandra Celletti was born in 2012 when the Roman pianist was involved by Calò for the first and only performance, live from the studios of Radio Rai 3, May 21, 2012, of “Prelude to silence,” a composition for spinet that Celletti wrote for the work of Calò titled “Prelude to silence” (Cembalo borghese).

The notes of the composition path that led to the final form of “Prelude to silence” become the material on which Alessandra Celletti has woven the narrative soundtrack for piano for the event in Paris, thus tending an imaginary line to a unique experience.
