When we published the announcement of the OPENSTAGE project we did not expect this extraordinary interest. The projects arrived were many and above all by young people who would have had no other chance to play in the historic stage of Castelfidardo. Every day at Piazza della Repubblica from 15:00 to 18:00 we will have international artists and … together with young promises who will perform in all musical genres, from Virtuoso, to World Music, from Jazz to Classical.
A Belgian duo will start on September 19th, composed by the eclectic accordionist GWEN CRESENS and the pianist BART VAN CAENEGEN who will present their album, “Eclectic”. Following the ACCORDUO, composed of 2 crystalline talents such as Federico Gili and Matteo Marinelli, who won the PIF 2018 jazz category. Also in jazz, the original ALEKSANDER IPAVEC from Slovenia meets the extraordinary saxophonist FRANCESCO BEARZATTI. In the afternoon the DUO MARSIA closes, composed by the very young Mario Piluso (accordion) and Gregorio Maria Paone (clarinetist) who inspire their project in Greek mythology.
On September 20th, the Piazza della Repubblica stage will offer the always-followed auditions of the Jazz Accordion category.
On the 21st it will open in the afternoon with the disruptive accordionist LUCA ZANETTI and to follow the very young NICKOLAY OVCHINNIKOV with his “Italian Trio” for a jazz music straddling tradition and innovation. Already winners in many categories of the PIF and not only, Andrea Di Giacomo and Valerio Russo with the VIRTUOSITY DUO will propose an impressive repertoire. An exceptional duo composed by accordionist RICCARDO TADDEI and pianist ROMAN GOMES will close the afternoon in an intense tango-jazz project.
On the 22nd it starts with a bang thanks to the ZDRUZENI ORKESTER DIATONICNIH HARMONIK directly from Slovenia, directed by M ° Zoran Lupinc who will propose a large-scale autochthonous repertoire. Still a famous accordionist, CHICO CHAGAS that will propose the extraordinary music of Brazil and we will be able to listen to Chico also in the evening concert on Friday with the Big Band Jazz. The SAXAKKORD DUO, composed by the artists Arseniy Strokovskiy (accordion, Russia) and Ivan Dyma (sax, Germany) for a crossover repertoire that will not fail to intrigue and amaze. A resounding finale with the Balkan jazz of JORDAN DJEVIC GIACOMO TOSTI DUO].
The PIF, which loves the accordion and culture, once again offers a program of extraordinary quality and variety. Thanks to the Municipal Administration and to the Castelfidardo accordion companies that help us keep the entire PIF OPENSTAGE free.
