MIJF: Torrio! feat. Ilaria Crociani – MOTUS ANIMI
Friday, December 3, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
There is something elusive yet so distinctive in Italian music that makes it immediately recognisable. It allows Alessandro Scarlatti or Barbara Strozzi’s music to be performed alongside Ennio Morricone or Bruno Martino’s.
MOTUS ANIMI, or “moves of the soul”, is the Latin equivalent for the English “emotions”
In this unique festival-only performance, Tuscan-born singer Ilaria Crociani joins Paul Grabowsky, Mirko Guerrini and Niko Schäuble’s Torrio! in an exploration of the “emotions” underpinning Italian music through an eclectic selection of baroque arias, contemporary jazz songs, and movie soundtracks.
