The conservatories of Bologna and Seville are collaborating in an exchange project dedicated to Baroque music. From Thursday 9th until Saturday 11th of April 2015, the Spanish students VALLECILLO Postigo (violinist), María Cristina DOMÍNGUEZ Asperilla (violinist) and Francisco Daniel ESPAÑA Arjona (cellist), are attending to the master-class “Seminario di canto barocco”, a Seminar of Baroque cantata, at the Conservatory G.B. Martini in Bologna, led by professors: Gloria Banditelli, Daniele Salvatore, Silvia Rambaldi, and Valeria Montanari. At the end of this exchange week, on Saturday 11th April at 5.00 p.m., the Spanish students and their colleagues from the Bologna Conservatory are performing together in the final concert of the seminar dedicated to Baroque Cantata, in the San Colombano complex.
The exchange will be proposed again in June, when three students from the Bologna conservatory, the harpsichordist Chiara Cattani and the singers Ewa Gubanska and Jesùs Rodil, will return the visit and fly to Spain, to take part in the final phase of the local education program and perform along with other musicians, in occasion of the European Music Day celebrations, taking place on the 21st of June.
The initiative is part of AMANT (Academia de Música Antigua, Universidad de Sevilla), an education program for young musicians organized by the Baroque Orchestra and by the University of Seville. The program is addressed to talented students enrolled in the last two years of the Music Conservatory “Manuel Castillo” and offers a rich schedule of classes, workshops, conferences and master-classes focused on Baroque music.
