The performance will be an actual virtual meeting with the artist, who will play everlasting classics such as Rossini’s Overture to The Barber of Seville, along with some of her own compositions, such as The Wind and The Sea. The 40-minute concert will also be posted on youtube (Comune di Spoleto – https://bit.ly/2WX9PTa), will feature Cristiana Pegoraro reinterpreting some of the most exciting excerpts from her 29 dec 2018 concert, such as Radetzky March.
“While closing this exceptionally negative, costly-to-all 2020 – said councillor for Culture Ada Urbani – we hope against hope that 2021 will return us what we were and are. For New Year’s Eve, we turned to Cristiana Pegoraro, mindful of her success at the Teatro Menotti two years ago, that demonstrated a sincere affection for this internationally renowned pianist who continues to promote Umbria in the world with her art and talent“.
“It is with great pleasure that I accepted the virtual invitation from the City of Spoleto – said Pegoraro – 2020 was a difficult year for us all, and we need to start 2021 with renewed spirit. I would like to thank the councillor for culture Ada Urbani and the city administration for this opportunity: being able to greet this wonderful city, even if not in the beauty of the Menotti Theatre, is surely a great start”.
