The event

The Pietà de’ Turchini Centre for Early Music Foundation is pleased to present a special project that is being carried out in collaboration with the Galleries of Zevallos Stigliano Palace, on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition Tanzio da Varallo meets Caravaggio. In the Galleries, from 24 October 2014 to 11 January 2015, is scheduled Painting in Naples in the early seventeenth century. The vocal and instrumental ensamble Cantar Lontano, directed by Marco Mencoboni, will perform a concert whose program, created for the occasion, includes authors and compositions contemporary with the Piedmontese artist who stayed for a long time in Naples, where he also practiced music, drawing great inspiration from it for his pictorial vocation.

The Ensemble

Cantar Lontano stands out for the revival and dissemination of a repertoire unknown until a few years ago and is present in the programme of the most distinguished European festivals and theaters. The first modern performance of numerous vocal works by Costanzo Porta, Ignazio Donati, Lodovico da Viadana, Giselin Danckerts and Diego Ortiz is due to Mencoboni, who is its founder and director. Among the most significant aspects of the group’s artistic programming, the resumption of early works  in the places where they were produced emerges: this is the case of the Vespro della Beata Vergine by Claudio Monteverdi made with the ‘Cantar Lontano’ technique and performed in the Palatine Basilica of Santa Barbara, for which it was probably conceived.
