GLI AMOROSI AFFETTI is a musical initiative that animates the halls of the Galleria Borghese. Every first Saturday of the month musicians and ensembles specialized in the execution of historical instruments, along with the best students of the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome and other prestigious European musical institutions, offer an immersive experience of baroque and eighteenth-century culture through contemporary music inspired by the exhibited works, rotating across the many beautiful rooms of the museum.
Saturday, Dicember 2nd , 11:00am and 12:00pm
Evoke the splendor of musical celebrations and historical sacred functions sung for hours by the Paolina Music Chapel commissioned by Scipione Borghese in Santa Maria Maggiore, where music will resonate once again throughout the entire Borghese Gallery.
The EOS Choir, conducted by Fabrizio Barchi, will sing, accompanying visitors through the rooms, pieces from the Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary repertoire, in small ensembles up to the full formation.
During this event, the music for the Gallery’s artworks, the Amorous Affections evoked in each monthly concert, will blend with the acoustic reproduction of each room and with the history and vocation of the Museum to commission new and astonishing works.
Artistic direction: Riccardo Martinini
