The International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation gave a unique residence in Alessano (Italy) in the context of the muse Salentine Festival edition 2019.  The concept of Yehudi Menuhin Foundation’s residence at Muse Salentine Festival, is to revisit some of the repertoire dear to Yehudi Menuhin by including elements of traditional music and bringing together classical artists and musicians from an Italian folk tradition background. The programme embraces composers Yehudi Menuhin particularly appreciated, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Turina, Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Grappelli and Reinhardt as well as works from the European traditional repertoire. Invited musicians include soloists from the Brussels Chamber Orchestra, musicians proposed by MUS-E Italia and a special guest of honour: the Italian violinist Alessandro Quarta. The residence led to a magical representation on the Palazzo Ducale on Sunday 15 of September 2019.

 

TGR RAI Puglia aired a beautiful video on the concert.
