“Il clarinetto si racconta: Mozart, Rossini, Cimarosa e Mercadante”. Online evento with M° Massimo Santaniello

Feeling like listening to some good music? If that is the case, don’t miss The Magic Box we’re having in May! Our guest, Maestro Massimo Santaniello, a well-known musician, will introduce his instrument, the “magic” clarinet. Why magic? Well, first of all the clarinet is the youngest representative of the woodwind family of instruments. It was only added to the orchestra by the late 18th century.

It has its roots in the early single-reed instruments or hornpipes used in Ancient Greece, such as “aulos”, with two reeds, Ancient Egypt, where an instrument called “memet” already existed in 2700 a. C., Middle East, and Europe since the Middle Ages. As a matter of fact, Sardinia can boast an ancestor of the clarinet, “launeddas”, with three reeds of different length, an instrument which has been used since 900-500 a.C. and still is the most traditional Sardinian musical instrument.

Massimo loves his instrument and has performed not only in the most important Italian cities, but also in many other countries. He has worked with internationally renowned musicians, and has conducted various symphonic and chamber orchestras. Alongside his concert activity, he also teaches both in Italy and abroad, in various ensemble music courses and Master Classes for young musicians.

His presentation will be really “magic” as he has generously accepted to perform for us. There will be some pieces by Mozart, Rossini, Cimarosa and Mercadante.
