Luca Manghi and Flavio Villani, Italian musicians now based in New Zealand, will perform in public together for the first time, a programme of twentieth-century Italian works for flute and piano. They will explore the various musical styles of a century of Italian music, with works by Alfredo Casella and Nino Rota, along with the neoclassicism of Giorgio Ferrari, the more contemporary works of Luciano Berio and Salvatore Sciarrino, and an homage to New Zealand music tradition with a work by Gillian Whithead.
This programme of solo and chamber music works, prepared especially for this occasion, showcases the perfect synergy between the two instruments, and the talent of the musicians.
