This summer stay tuned on D Major Tv, we will bring you to the beautiful city of Lerici with “Suoni dal Golfo”, music and poetry festival from 16th to 31th August!
There will be many specials: interviews, backstage, live streaming and many surprises!
Set on the famous coastline of the Golfo dei Poeti, the seaside town of Lerici and the neighbouring Cinque Terre have been a magnet for poets and composers alike, from Shelley, Byron and Lawrence to Wagner.
A sprinkling of brightly coloured houses lines medieval streets that wind up to Lerici’s castle, which overlooks the entrance to the Gulf of Poets. The castle is thought to be the inspiration for Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.” From May 1822 the Shelley family was living in a dilapidated boat house, Casa Magni, with the sea lapping the doors, near the tiny village of San Terenzo. Between San Terenzo and Lerici lies the eighteenth century Villa Marigola offering stunning views on the Porto Venere.
Conductor Gianluca Marcianò launches Suoni dal Golfo as a new festival of music and poetry in his home town, with a programme inspired by the sea and the poets who were drawn to it.
Together with violist Maxim Novikov, Marcianò also founded a new concept for emerging musicians: Orchestra Excellence. The festival provides now a summer residency for the musicians who have been carefully selected to join the orchestra.
With a series of public concerts at the most stunning sights of Lerici, San Terenzo and Tellaro, Suoni dal Golfo will pay a tribute to all who were drew inspiration from the wonderful seaside of the Venere Azzurra to continue to inspire.
The wonderful program will alternate between the most enchanting locations of the city of Lerici, including the Castle, the Villa Shelley, the enchanting churches and the wonderful beach of San Terenzi. (Venues map by Greta Ricciolini)
