Note d’organo in città

Organo S Maria di Campagna Ph. Carlo Pagani-Archivio Comune di Piacenza

The Gruppo Euterpe offers three organ concerts in the churches of Piacenza. Ancient instruments, that seek new life by approaching young people thanks to interpretations and masterclasses held by and for the younger generations.

The protagonists are the Serassi organ in Santa Maria di Campagna, the Giani organ in the basilica of Sant’Antonino and the oldest instrument in Piacenza, the Lanzi Facchetti organ in the church of San Sisto.

The music travels through the centuries, from the 16th century to the art of improvisation.
