The Praiano Chambre and Jazz Music Festival was born from the desire to bring chamber music and jazz music to the squares and places of collective listening of the town of Praiano, a precious pearl of the Amalfi coast nestled between Amalfi and Positano.
For this first edition, the festival consists of twelve events among the infinite nuances of classical music. We will meet the sounds of early nineteenth-century classical composers, such as Mozart and Beethoven, to progress gradually towards the twentieth century through a more modern repertoire. We will thus pay homage to Shostakovich and other extraordinary composers of the last century.
The inaugural concert will take place on Monday 6 June at the Church of San Luca in Praiano and will be intended for an unusual instrument from a solo point of view, such as the double bass, to move on to vocal concerts, piano recitals, and concerts for mandolin. The festival will end on Monday 12 September for an appointment with another important composer such as Gioacchino Rossini, whose rare instrumental pages will be performed.
To pay homage to the great masters of the past, there will be musicians from the San Carlo Theater in Naples together with young professionals and students from the Cimarosa Conservatory of Avellino.
The Praiano Chambre and Jazz Music Festival is curated by the Artistic Director Carmine Laino, first double bass of the San Carlo Theater in Naples.
