1 - 9 Settembre 2007 
Cupra Marittima

The Fifth edition of CupraMusicaFestival will be held from 1st to 9th September 2007. The presence of international players and young soloists from all over the world has been confirmed also this year.

The interesting playbill will be performed in picturesque and fascinating settings such as the amphitheatre of Sant’Andrea Castle, Villa Vinci-Boccabianca and San Basso Church, where a triptych by Vittore Crivelli is kept.

The repertoire ranges from Classical Music (Bach, Brahms, Beethoven), French Novecento interpreted by the harpist Maria Gamboz.  The Park of the Fountain in Villa Vinci will host tango and jazz music shows in collaboration with TAM-Tutta un’Altra Musica by Giambattista Tofoni.

The first edition of the musical event, also directed by Dante Milozzi, was opened by the notes of Mendelssohn baroque music in 2003. Mendelssohn wrote the melodies for the play “A mid-summer night dream” by Shakespeare when he was just seventeen. Also this year his music will delight the audience at the opening concert. It will be held in the picturesque setting of Sant’Andrea castle. It dates back to XIII century and anciently served as a watchtower and defensive fortress. Two of Mendelssohn masterpieces will be presented that night: Violin concert and “Italian” Symphony. They will be interpreted by the polyhedral Russian violinist Boris Garlitsky, professor at the Paris Academy of Music and first violin at the London Symphony. He will be accompanied by the outstanding Abruzzo Symphonic Orchestra, that has always been present at the opening concerts of CupraMusicaFestival.

The Adriatic Academy (Accademia Adriatica), will accompany the musicians during the Festival. It is an orchestra composed of young musicians from all over the world. Among the other members, two soloists are to be mentioned: Luca Ranieri, first Viola in the RAI National Symphonic Orchestra and Federico Mondelci, famous saxophonist, orchestra leader and artistic director of Pesaro Rossini Theatre. 

They will together with Boris Garlitsky, Massimo Mazzoni, president of the Italian Association of Saxophonists  and the international musical Toshiaki e Yuka Hayashi, (violoncello and pianoforte) show their ability and art not only in the concerts, but they will also share it in courses for high improvement held from 3rd to 9th September in Villa Vinci. They will be opened to 15 musicians, the best of whom will have the chance of playing their music together with their masters.

 An other remarkable event that will be held during the Festival is “Premio Boccabianca”. It is dedicated to the memory of Count Vincenzo Boccabianca (violinist and orchestra leader 1810-1879). His ancient family gives the name to the Villa where most concerts will be held.

The winning violinist will be given the chance of performing with the Adriatic Academy Orchestra, but will also be given a Stradivarius violin similar to the one the Count Boccabianca had. The violin is carved by liut makers whose works are on show in Villa Vinci from 9am to 6pm during the Festival.
