Alchemical serenade for piano and narrator

Homage to Raimondo di Sangro and Mario Buonoconto
By and with: Maria Grazia Ritrovato, Martin Rua

24th March 2018, 8.30pm

Music returns to the Sansevero Chapel on the occasion of the 2018 edition of Piano City Napoli, this time honouring two men linked in different, but converging, ways to the “Pietatella”: in one case because he was its most important artificer in the 18th century; in the other because, three centuries later, he studied its complex symbolism with both love and passion.

Both elevated spirits.
Both initiated.

On the 247th anniversary of the death of Raimondo di Sangro and in memory of artist and expert in esotericism Mario Buonoconto, who died in 2003, pianist Maria Grazia Ritrovato and writer Martin Rua create an encounter between music and words in a concert redolent of the alchemical mysteries that the Prince of Sansevero hid in his family chapel, investigated, along with other things, by the late professor Buonoconto.
