GIORGIO RESTA & ENRICO MARIA POLIMANTI ON LAW AND MUSIC
Dear all, on Thursday and Friday (as usual at 10:00 am, room 4), Prof. Giorgio Resta (University of Bari) and M° Enrico Maria Polimanti (professional pianist) will introduce us to the very special topic of Law and Music, with particular focus on the similarities between legal and musical interpretation.
THIS VERY SPECIAL EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL PEOPLE INTERESTED: PLEASE PROMOTE IT AND INVITE WHO YOU WANT!
The reading is avalable online and, guess what, the author is prof. Manderson!
Enrico Maria Polimanti was born in Rome in 1969. He studied at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia and at the Royal College of Music in London, and has performed as soloist and in chamber ensembles for many concert seasons and music festivals, playing a wide range of traditional repertoire but also works by lesser-known composers such Lodovico Giustini and Hyacinthe Jadin. He has played programmes dedicated entirely to Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Debussy. Several composers have also written works for him, one of whom is Francesco Giammusso, whose Piano Concerto he performed in Paris with the Orchestre Internationale de la Cité Universitaire. Mr Polimanti’s recordings for the labels Tactus and Naxos gained recognition by the critics in Italy and abroad (5 stars The Listerner and Musica) and his performances have been broadcast in Italy (Radio 3, V Canale della Filodiffusione, Radio Vaticana, RAI 3), France, Romania and Austria. Engaged in the diffusion of musical culture, he regularly gives lectures and lecture- concerts in various schools, associations and universities both in Italy and abroad. Enrico Maria Polimanti has translated into Italian Charles Rosen’s Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas and Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger’s Chopin vu par ses élèves. His essay The Earth has many keys, which analyzes the works of five Italian contemporary composers based on the poetry of Emily Dickinson has been selected for the American Literay Scholarship (Duke University Press).
