Polyphonic Music at the Mirror: same texts, different ages….

…..it’s the title of the concert that I will conduct in Minsk (Belarus) on 19 May, h. 8:00 pm, at the Church of St. Simon and Helena. The concert will be replied in Italy two times, at the beautiful Monastery of Fonte Avellana on 6 July and in Rimini on 7 July. The idea is to compare pieces set up on the same text during the Renaissance and in the contemporary age. The choir will be the ‘Belarusian State Chamber Choir’, a professional Ensemble from Minsk (http://goo.gl/b7gRt). The programme:
