Peppino Principe 2018: as the artist dies so a myth is born of the last great of the Italian Accordion. The PIF2018, in partnership with the companies of Castelfidardo, pays tribute to the Prince of the Accordion with an original performance focused on the artist and his very particular style that has made him a musician loved by everyone.
His last public appearance was at the PIF2017 for his 90th birthday. Principe starred so many times on the Castelfidardo stage and Castelfidardo awarded him honourary citizenship and appointed him accordion ambassador of the world.
At the Teatro Astra Rodolfo Gasparri, Thursday September 13 (21.15) the tribute will take place with special videos, performances of his compositions, famous arrangements and pieces. Performances include: Ensemble Contemporaneo, directed by maestro Toni Fidanza, a jazz septet that often accompanied the maestro on tour; the young jazzman Natalino Marchetti (winner of many international competitions and protagonist of prestigious collaborations); and maestro Pino Di Modugno, whose extensive and extraordinary career needs no introduction.
