Concert with Daniele di Bonaventura
and the Friulian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra conducted by Alessio Venier
narration Nicoletta Oscuro
with passages taken from Il tango della Vecchia Guardia by Arturo Pérez-Reverte
music by Daniele di Bonaventura

After spending several years together with his bandoneon, conducting all kinds of experiments, research into new forms of language and collaborations with the most diverse artistic personalities, Daniele di Bonaventura returns to tango. The music he has written, arranged, and that he conducts and interprets belongs to the last century and seeks to chronologically trace his great passion for Argentinian music, from the traditional sanguine tango to the tango canción of legend Carlos Gardel, from Piazzolla´s modern tango to one of his contemporary Suites. A tribute to music that has many sensual and passionate overtones, so admirably described by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.


Daniele di Bonaventura
Daniele di Bonaventura is considered one of the most original and creative bandoneon players in the world. His music is a wonderfully serious, yet outstandingly playful mix of classical music and jazz with timely references to Mediterranean melody traditions and the South American musical genre. In his solo performances, he executes and improvises pieces whose inspiration ranges from Baroque composers to folksong classics, creating an incredibly varied yet unmistakable musical world. He has played at major Italian and international festivals, collaborating with high-profile musicians and actors from the music scene and theatre. He has more than 90 recordings to his credit, the latest being Uno strato di buio uno di luce with poetess Patrizia Valduga.

The Friulian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra was founded in 2015 and is made up entirely of and run by people under the age of 35.

Artistic direction is by Alessio Venier, a composer, violinist and conductor from Friuli, who was born in 1992. The Orchestra is recognised and supported by the Ministry for Culture and the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, and is a winner of the Premio Epifania 2024 award.
