Mozart - Symphony in C major KV551 "Jupiter" 7 - 12 March 2011

- “Why don't you like classical music?”

- “Because I am not used to it!”

- “Because there's no rhythm”

- “Because I have to listen to it when I need to make my little cousin sleep!”

These are some of the answers children gave during the concert lessons we organized in Vignola, Nonantola and Mestre. These remarks are all comprehensive, due to the difficulties we might feel nowadays in putting in relation music of the past with everyday life and rhythms. So we tried to close this gap, taking advantage of Lorenzo Coppola's imagination and mime, bringing maybe one of the most idealized Mozart's Symphonies onto a more human and concrete ground.

Everything condensed in images, theatre, gestures, helped also by the evocative power and almost verbal communicativeness of period instruments. We invited children to dance to the music, to act and to tell their own “Jupiter”, trying to imagine the links a contemporary listener of Mozart might have done with opera and theatre without any effort. With great success! This, of course, is only one of the possible approaches: the intimate relationship everyone has with music has got the right, often the need, to remain unsaid, secret. For the realization of this project we would like to thank Lorenzo, our teacher and provocateur, and all the people who hosted us and looked after us tirelessly at the Casa Frate Leone in Vignola: Fra Matteo, Fra Filippo, Fra Carletto, Maria, Benedetta, Caterina, Gabriella, Nicoletta, Veronica, Giulia. To each one of them we send a big hug and warm thanks!!!
