Vivaldi JAZZT online international tour with soprano Rodica Vică and ImpRoWien Ensemble

Friday, 16 April 2021 , ora 13.48

The year 2021 is marked by the intersection of the destinies of some of the most important composers in the history of music. This year's anniversaries and commemorations create an extraordinary compositional panoply, spread over more than two centuries, from baroque to the present day. Thus, the commemoration of the 280th anniversary of the death of Antonio Vivaldi in Vienna, becomes the reference point of the international online tournament JAZZT Vivaldi., The city of birth of Vivaldi - Venice and his disappearance - Vienna, being included in this foray into the evolution ofits creation. Through an ingenious connection, we reach the 140th anniversary of the birth of George Enescu and Béla Bartók (both born in the current territory of Romania), passing by the commemoration of a centenary of the disappearance of Camille Saint-Saëns, and other compositional anniversaries such as Tomaso Albinoni, Giuseppe Verdi, Gustav Mahler, Astor Piazzolla and Igor Stravinsky, all reinterpreted through the vision of pianist and composer Cristian Spătaru.

The international JAZZT Vivaldi online tour is in the tradition of projects undertaken in recent years by the association Musica Ricercata, to bring to light new interpretations and innovative stylistic organizations, based on music research, bringing the beneficiary additional experience in this field, by investigating the universe composition of Vivaldi - through exploratory aesthetic associations, the innovative character of the tour being conferred by the stylistic binder of the project, meaning the improvisation.In Antonio Vivaldi's music, improvisation is a mandatory element, and the vision offered by this project is to highlight this parallel with jazz music. Vivaldi is the recurring standard, all the improvisations in the style of the other composers being framed in his areas. George Enescu - a great admirer of the music of Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach - strongly influenced by him and BélaBartók recreated the improvisational universe of folklore in this geographical space in their entire creation, being the defining element of their music.

The series of concerts within the international online tour JAZZT Vivaldi supported by the famous soprano Rodica VICĂ (Romania-Austria), with ImpRoWien Ensemble (Austria-Romania): Cristian SPĂTARU piano and orchestrator, Cristian RUSCIOR - violin 1, Gratiela ARANYOSI - violin 2, Hannah BERGHOFER - viola and Florian Cristian DRAGOMIR - double bass, will take place between April 20th and May 4th, 2021, both on the Facebook page of the Associated Music Association: https://www.facebook.com/EnsembleMusicaRicercata, by soprano Rodica Vică: https://www.facebook.com/rodica.vica, as well as on the Facebook pages of the partners involved in organizing this unique music project.
