Via Palestro, 40
Classical music became part of the Scuola Normale over fifty years ago, when apart from a few exceptions, the presence of music in universities was practically unheard of in Italy. The Scuola Normale Concerts offer a programme combining music of different periods and representative of different styles, interpretations and genres.
This year the concerts will have as protagonists some of the best interpreters of classical music: well-established talents and young people of sure perspective will alternate in the interpretation of traditional and other lesser-known pages, from the Baroque period to the twentieth century.
With the “Concerti della Normale” and the “lezioni di musica” , the Scuola brings to its students, and indeed to the city itself, an indispensable cultural education; it is a season of classical music that welcomes talents from the national and international music scene, in a constant interweaving of tradition and contemporaneity.
It was Gilberto Bernardini, then director of the Scuola, who, in 1967, provided the impetus for this project. The concert season has become a tradition at the Scuola Normale, together with the almost forty years of activity of the Vincenzo Galilei Choir. The “Concerti della Normale” represent a combination of musical eras and styles, instrumental interpretations and differing genres of composition.
