The power of music is strongly tied to its capability to evoke and in doing this it is necessary to find a language which comunicates the profound meaning of the Act of composition, which, independently of the period of composition, always risks becoming formal due to the inherent compromises and conventions implicit in the writing and in the natural process of handing down music through the ages. The programme “Cantabile Duetto” includes some of the most enthralling compositions of the 17th century written by composers that strongly influenced the history of Baroque music. Arparla will search for the energy hidden within the original manuscripts using a language primarily based on Rhetoric in music and the inherent flexibility of improvising between two musicians and between the artists and the audience, all typical elements of the historically informed performance of the Baroque. This is a starting point: historical research and diving into the past to light the spark that today as in the 1600s incites dreams and touches the inner chords with a language that has no limits.
