Castrianni Pianoforti and Alfredo Conte: Italy between Craftsmanship and Young Talent

Thursday 13 October, 6.30 pm

We are pleased to introduce the first event of a series of concerts “Young Music Italy” aimed at showcasing the best of Italian craftsmanship and the most promising Italian musical talents.This first event will weave these two aspects of the Made in Italy together, through a first introductory conference by the siblings Francesca and Alessandro Castrianni, followed by a piano concert by the young pianist Alfredo Conte. The talk will shed light on the history of the pianoforte within the framework of Italian excellence in piano craftsmanship. It will be curated by the Castrianni family who, for over 70 years, has been at the forefront of setting up and tuning high end pianos, including those of the historic Italian brand Fazioli. Maestro Francesca Castrianni will open the evening with a brief history of the instrument and will talk about the family’s direct experience in the field, while Alessandro Castrianni will speak more in detail about the technicalities of the instrument and the tuning technique. Later, a concert by young pianist Alfredo Conte will take the audience through several seminal pieces of classical music from the 18th to the 21st century, including, among others, Beethoven’s Grande Sonate Pathétique and Hosokawa’s étude no.3 'calligraphy'.
