21 pianists will perform a free concert in the colonnade of Piazza Plebiscito for Piano City Napoli 2018
From March 23rd to 25th 2018 the successful Piano City Napoli event will be back and the inauguration will take place on March 23rd with an evocative concert of 21 pianos that will perform at Piazza Plebiscito.
In a natural setting of beauty and art, the 21 pianos distributed under the arcade’s hemicycle, positioned between the columns, will play unique pieces of great classical music composers.
Their repertoire will include pieces revisited for the occasion, but without structural or communication changes. Among them there will be Beethoven’s Chiaro di Luna, Bach’s virtuoso Toccata and Fuga in D minor, and Ravel, with the hypnotic Bolero.
Before the concert other compositions will be performed: the tarots of Shostakovich and Rachmaninov for two pianos, followed by the Waltz of the Ciaikovski flowers performed on four pianos and then, in a crescendo of multiple numbers, Piazzolla’s Libertango for eight pianos, up to reach the expected number twenty-one, which will turn the spotlight on the square.
