La Vaghezza is a dynamic group of internationally award winning young musicians who have quickly become one of the most sought after chamber ensembles in the international festival scene. Join them for a transformative experience full of luscious sounds from the 1600's, music from another world.
The programme is inspired by a pivotal icon in Western culture and spirituality – the Virgin Mary. Michaelangelo’s sculpture known as La Pietà is an unforgettable rendering of the Madonna – holding her dying son in her arms, this single infinite gesture of maternal love shows her bowing to destiny. It is through the words hidden behind her silence that the music of this programme is born, recreating the singular relationship between mother and son, full of love and suffering.
