The Good Friday Concert
7th April 2023, at 8.30 p.m.
Chiesa Collegiata, Bellinzona
On Friday 7 April, in Bellinzona's splendid Collegiata Church, a much-appreciated event returns punctually: the Good Friday Concert.
For the 2023 edition of this important musical moment, the Orchestra della Svizzera italiana and the Swiss Radio and Television Choir conducted by Diego Fasolis, with the participation of soloists Minji Kim soprano, Gabriella Sborgi mezzo-soprano, Alessandro Fisher tenor, Marco Bussi and Carlo Lepore basses, will perform Gaetano Donizetti's Messa di Requiem, for soprano, contralto, two basses, four mixed-voice choir and orchestra, which the great opera composer from Bergamo wrote in 1835 in memory of Vincenzo Bellini, the rival-colleague who died suddenly in the suburbs of Paris at the height of his fame. A deeply felt tribute, majestic, dramatic, imbued with those melodramatic gusts that swept through the sacred music of the greatest Italian composers of the 19th century, a fundamental link connecting this little-known major work by Donizetti to Gioachino Rossini's Stabat Mater and Giuseppe Verdi's Messa da Requiem for Alessandro Manzoni.
