About the event

“Trii del Signor Zanni”, Sonatas for two violins and continuo by Andrea Zani performed by Compagnia de Violini with a program that will create an ideal musical connection between Andrea Zani and the two figures of Venetian composers who probably most influenced his artistic life: Antonio Vivaldi and Antonio Caldara (the latter occasionally stayed in Casalmaggiore, composing numerous cantatas). This harmonic link will be exemplified through a chamber music genre that was very important at the time, but still little frequented and known today: that of the Sonata a tre. Compositional form in which two violins converse sustained and supported by the basso continuo, the Sonata a tre constituted at the time the genre through which young musicians presented themselves to the general public at the beginning of their career, demonstrating their mastery in the compositional technique. in harmonic, melodic and expressive inventiveness.
