un piacevole percorso dalle musiche moderne di Satie, Granados, Grieg, al barocco di Telemann, Bach, Haendel, Van Eyck. Ottime esecuzioni grande intesa tra i due artisti una serata di ottima musica…Una sala pienissima un successo meritatissimo tanti applausi e un bis finale di Piazzolla.

Convivio Armonico di Area Arte propone la panoramica “A ritroso nel Tempo” del duo Matteoli-Palamidessi

Nel complesso un interessante excursus, costituito da brani piacevoli, impreziositi dalla presenza di due interpreti (autori anche dei diversi arrangiamenti), apparsi molto bravi singolarmente e ben affiatati fra loro. Pubblico numeroso, che ha mostrato un elevato gradimento nei confronti dei brani ascoltati, applaudendo a lungo gli esecutori. Questi ultimi hanno quindi concluso in grande stile la loro esibizione, con un bis rivolto alla musica argentina del Novecento, ritornando così vicini al punto dal quale erano partiti.
