Genoa in Music

Jun 01, 2018 614

On the occasion of Italy's National Day and Mayor Marco Bucci of Genoa's visit of San Francisco, The Consulate General of Italy and The Italian Cultural Institute pay homage to the city of Genoa with a beautiful double concert. We will listen to musics of Paganini, Rossini, Carulli, Bellini, Schubert, Verdi and Beethoven, performed by duo Andrea Cardinale & José Scanu and Quartetto Dàidalos.

Quartetto Dàidalos was founded in Novara (Italy) in October 2014 by four friends' desire to deepen their study of chamber music. In spite of the four members's young age (between 18 and 20), the Quartetto Dàidalos has already performed in several concerts, and was invited to join the international project Le Dimore del Quartetto as one of the most talented young Italian string quartet.

The duo violin guitar Andrea Cardinale & José Scanu was formed with the intent of studying and appreciating the wide repertoire originally written for this type of Chamber music from the baroque to the present day.
On 9 February 2018, at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, the duo did play for the first time in history the violin of Paganini with the guitar of Mazzini in front of over 1200 people.
The duo play historical instruments and specifically Andrea Cardinale a Vuillaume violin of 1864 model "Cannone," copy of Paganini's Guarneri del Gesù and José Scanu a Ramirez belonged to Andrés Segovia of 1960 and a Carlo Bruno from Guadagnini of the late nineteenth century.
