From Greek Literature to the music, through food: this is the third event of Talking Lands project in Grottaglie, for which the beautiful frame of Casa Vestita within “Quartiere delle Ceramiche” will be again the setting in which the literary meeting will be held. The topic will be “Lessico Musicale del ‘900” (“ the Twentieth century musical lexis”)- Progedit Ed., 2011, by Pierfranco Moliterni, who will be interviewed by Maria Grazia Deana Ciracì.
Moliterni teaches History of Modern and Contemporary music, History of Music Drama and methodologies in musical Communication at University of Bari “A.Moro”. He is specialized in the XVIIth - XVIIIth century music History and planning of the performance. He is author of numerous publications about these topics. “Lessico musicale del ‘900” ( “the Twentieth century musicallexis”) is an answer to many questions that the musical complexity of the last century includes such as: what does it mean today when we speak about classical music? What does it mean “musica leggera”? What do they mean dodecaphony and minimalism? What is “aesthetic” for the music in a film? What and how Schoenberg and Stravinskij, Nono and Berio, Boulez and Cage wrote the XIXth century- music? Very interesting is the link as in the dissertation as in the final chronology between the music and other artistic expressions such as cinema, painting, literature that just in the twentieth century were reciprocally influenced and produced an extraordinary creative season.
