Baroque music is back in Rome

For the fourth consecutive year, Musicanova Choir confirms its participation to “Rome’s Baroque Festival”, renewing its attendance to the Palestrina project.

The 11 th Edition of 2018 of the Rome’s Baroque Festival includes a magnificent calendar of concerts and musical conferences which will expand from Rome to the cities of Milan and Naples. The creation of the “1 st Harpsichord Festival“ in historical 1600’s residents’ in Castelli Romani completes a musical path that involves some of the most beautiful locations of the Italian Baroque architecture.

Musicanova Choir will participate by performing the mass “Confitebor tibi Domine”, written for a specular double choir divided in eight voices each. The mass is one of the masterpieces by the renowned Italian composer Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, pillar of the choral music of the Renaissance.

The Choir will perform in two separate events: Saturday the 8 th of December – in the evocative Basilica di Santa Maria in Montesanto in Piazza del Popolo, in Rome’s historic centre – and Sunday the 9 th of December in the Parrocchia del Sacro Cuore del Gesù in Tivoli.

Rome’s Baroque Festival combines musical refinement, philological events and historical Baroque locations in Rome. The participation of prestigious international performers and the magnificence of the events are additional elements that make the festival so remarkable. It has in fact become one of the most important yearly appointments in the Eternal City.
