Opening concert – Music festival in memory of Liuwe Tamminga

San Colombano , from 05/09/2021 to 05/09/2021

The concert on Sunday 5 September at 6.30 pm – the first after the sudden death of Maestro Liuwe Tamminga, historical curator and artistic director of the San Colombano Museum – will be entirely dedicated to the memory of the great Dutch organist, harpsichordist and improviser. Born in 1953 in the Netherlands, he trained at the Groningen Conservatory and then in Paris. Arriving in Bologna in 1982, he soon became the titular organist of the organs of the Basilica of San Petronio, together with his teacher and friend Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini. He dedicated his life to the study and rediscovery of earlyt music, playing on historical instruments all over the world and recording CDs that earned him prizes from specialized magazines.
To pay homage to him will be some friends and fellow musicians: Jan de Winne (transverse flute), Fabio Tricomi (multi-instrumentalist), Peter Van Heyghen (recorder), Kris Verhelst (harpsichord and organ), Marc Vanscheeuwijck (baroque cello), Bruce Dickey (cornetto) and the newly appointed curator and artistic director of San Colombano, Catalina Vicens (harpsichord and organ).
Music by Palestrina, Castello, Leclair and Quantz will be performed on the historical instruments of the Tagliavini collection and on some copies of medieval instruments commissioned by Tamminga.

In order to guarantee the necessary distancing of the public and the performance of the concert in safety, the places available will be limited.
