18 Tales of a hidden Zaddik | Wednesday 29 September at h. 21.00 |
Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
The four members of Klezmerata Fiorentina (Igor Polesitsky on violin, Riccardo Crocilla on clarinet, Francesco Furlanich on bandoneon and Riccardo Donati on double bass), all of them soloists for the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, will act as spokesmen for traditional tales of Ukrainian Jewish mysticism.
The listener-traveller is led by the hand to board the carriage of a magic train, the 7:40 Train of Life, from which he will get off aware that existence passes like a Proustian, Bergsonian comedy – here divided into five parts: Five stories of the Lost Bride, To Istanbul and Back, Visions of the Southern Steppes, Three Sacred Melodies, and an untitled section made up of three pieces: Yoshke’s Leaving, Lament and Train of Life (7:40) – always wondering why, until the epilogue Question and Answer: (Why? – And why not?).
Research carried out by Igor Polesitsky has brought these musical stories back to life through the voices of the four instruments of the Klezmerata Fiorentina.
That magic train of life calls. There are no arrival stations, only transit stations, only many possibilities to choose how to travel. That concluding Train of Life (7:40) is Bergsonian, it is the time of consciousness, it is a ball of yarn that unravels little by little, containing the colours of past life, those of present life and those of future life, yet to be discovered.
A traditional, yet innovative musical event, definitely not to be missed.
