Lorenzo Frignani, one of the most prestigious Italian luthiers (he builds both bowed instruments and concert guitars) and president of the "Associazione Liutaria Italiana", has a large number of historical, rare and precious instruments in his personal collection. For this exhibition Lorenzo Frignani, who took over the collection of 20th century guitars by maestro Angelo Gilardino (which will be the subject of an exhibition that will be set up at the Leone Museum in Vercelli in 2024), will propose some guitars built in Turin by Carlo and Gaetano Guadagnini and Denis Nicolao, in Naples by Gennaro and Giovan Battista Fabricatore, by Gaetano De Grado and Pasquale Vinaccia. Together with instruments by the Milanese Giacomo Rivolta, the Ferrarese Giuseppe Marconcini and the Bolognese Filippo Guarmandi, they will offer a comprehensive representation of the excellent violin-making art expressed in Italy between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century.

CONFERENCES and MASTER CLASSES

THE CONCERTS

The project will be accompanied by an important concert series entrusted to the talent of some of the most successful Italian concert players.

 

All of them had the good fortune to know Maestro Angelo Gilardino; for some he has represented a fundamental teacher in their artistic career and they have had the privilege of extending the didactic and professional relationship to a relationship of deep esteem and friendship.

All of them have masterfully performed compositions by the master of which they were often the direct dedicatees, of which they have given the absolute "premiere" and recorded interpretations of great quality.
