Multiple award-winner Davide Vecchi and the excellent international ensemble of top-tier musicians Artsemble present a special evening of dance and music devised around the art of the Great Century (Grand Siècle). It pays tribute to singer and dancer Marie-Anne Roland. Mademoiselle Roland was a member of the French Royal Academy. As Tilton du Tillet reports in his 1732 Parnasse françois “she was distinguished in the nobility and graciousness of her dance”. The programme is designed as an imagining of a musical evening with the dancer hosting her fellow court musicians at her home. The dances have been reconstructed based on historical sources.
Davide Vecchi is a musician, dancer, and choreographer specializing in Renaissance and Baroque repertoires. He graduated in piano from the Girolamo Frescobaldi Conservatory of Music in Ferrara and in harpsichord and historical keyboards under the tutelage of Marina Scaioli. In his unique choreographies, he specializes in reconstructing dances to which he adds his own unique expression. He teaches Renaissance and Baroque dance in Bologna and Baroque dance at the Palazzo di Gradara.
Annalisa Pappano is considered one of America’s leading violinists. As a member of the Atalanta line-up, she won the Diapason d’Or and Gramophone awards. She has performed with the Houston Opera, the Cincinnati Opera, the Baroque Orchestra of the San Francisco Philharmonic, and other renowned ensembles around the globe. She is the founder and artistic director of the Catacoustic Consort ensemble, and has served as the artistic director of the Cincinnati Early Music Festival for eighteen years.
Eva Fürtinger studied cello, recorder, and viola da gamba at the University of Music in Vienna, Baroque cello at the Vienna Conservatory, and viola da gamba with Albert Rasi at the Conservatory in Verona. She shares her knowledge and love of the viola da gamba with the younger generation; between 2011 and 2014, she taught viola da gamba at the renowned Mozarteum in Salzburg and led a seminar on early music at the University in Innsbruck. She currently teaches at the Music School in Innsbruck.
Giuliano Eccher graduated in classical guitar and viola da gamba from the E. Felice dall’Abaco Conservatory in Verona. He further honed his skills at the Chigiana Academy, the Music School in Fiesole, and the Sommerakademie in Innsbruck. He has had the privilege of performing alongside masters such as F. Bruggen, A. Marcon, and B. Kuijken. His recordings have been released by several labels, and his live performances have been broadcasted by various radio stations, including RAI 3, France 3, NGD Osaka, and ORF. Currently, he teaches guitar and viola da gamba at the Istituto Musicale and Lingua Italiana A. Vivaldi in Bolzano.
Harpsichordist Marianna Bisacchi graduated piano with distinction at the Florentine conservatory and continued her studies with Konstantin Bogino where she focused on chamber music studies. At the Trento Conservatory she specialized in Baroque music and expanded her horizons at harpsichord masterclasses with G. Murray, A. Staier and A. Lawrence King. She worked as a répétiteur for Musica Antica Bozen and at the Trento Conservatory in the class of Lia Serafini, whom she also accompanied at master classes in baroque singing. She played concerts in Italy, France, Denmark, Germany, and Austria, and recorded for RAI3. She currently teaches chamber music at the Verona Conservatory.
