AngelicA Festival

AngelicA Festival

AngelicA, an International Music Festival celebrating its 23rd birthday in 2013, wants to emphasise the distance between the past and the present by looking at the future, amplifying Bologna’s title of UNESCO City of Music and hosting a “laboratory” that turns the city once again into a reference point for artists, audiences and anyone actively involved in the world of music. Music will be at the heart of its activities, through 360 degree research with a local, as well as a European and international scope. AngelicA works alongside other musical institutions, whose activities are increasingly focused on traditional and mainstream entertainment music. AngelicA points out problems and suggests solutions, sowing the seeds of a social and cultural change, in the context of a global dimension that has at its heart a social purpose.
The programme includes commissioning work from composers from different generations as well as a number of co-productions with Bologna’s Teatro Comunale, Modena’s Teatro Comunale, Lugo’s Teatro Rossini and Germany’s Ruhrtriennale. Internationally-famous musicians will work alongside younger colleagues – the aim is to give greater visibility to up-and-coming artists as well as to offer more experienced musicians the chance to open up to a new musical world, through this exciting and innovative musical project.
An intercultural dialogue comes to life in projects involving musicians and composers from different countries, who contribute to promote the global character of the event through a series of Italian or World premieres of these original concert/productions.
This month-long programme includes workshops, events open to the public and artists’ residencies. A European “commune” with an international dimension, supporting the notions of “communion” and “harmony” and celebrating diversity.
As research comes to life, it becomes – and generates – a renaissance.
