Sapienza and IUC, the University Concert Agency, will celebrate “Culture Day 2014” with a concert by Ars Ludi, a group renowned in Italy and abroad for its performances of contemporary music.
“Mirrored Percussions: beats to defeat time” will be performed by the four Ars Ludi percussionists (Antonio Caggiano, Rodolfo Rossi, Gianluca Ruggeri and Flavio Tanzi).
Ars Ludi plays a repertoire based on the works of Italian and American composers. In particular, the evening’s musical programme will include two Italian composers: Giorgio Battistelli’s “Orazi e Curiazi” and Paolo Castaldi’s “Fughetta editorial.” The final piece will be “Third Construction” by John Cage, a composer renowned for having demolished the barriers between sound and noise and who also imported oriental philosophy into western music.
As part of “Culture Week 2014,” anyone who attends a musical, theatrical or cinematographic event during the week from March 24 to 30, will receive a discount voucher (valid March 21 through April 2)
