Master class with Maria Costanza Nocentini


Teatro della Grancia

August, 20 - 24, 2017


Teacher Maria Costanza Nocentini

Piano Fabio Maggio


Maria Costanza Nocentini, an internationally renowned artist, has been dedicating for some years to the formation of young singers, sending the teachings received from her teacher, the great Belgian soprano Suzanne Danco. The opportunity to explore this repertoire with her is a precious one for young singers aiming to perfect their voices and acquire a greater knowledge of Belcanto, which - we insist - means not only tackling passages of notable vocal difficulty with a knowledge of technique, but also, getting to know the style of a composer, varying or embellishing the music in an appropriate way, phrasing with intensity, expressing feeling, capturing emotion.


The class will be limited to 12 persons, selected by the Artistic Director of the Festival, who will also award 3 scholarships to students considered to be particularly deserving.

In attendance at the master class will be Fabio Maggio, pianist and répétiteur of the Accademia del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

The students considered most suitable will participate in two concerts to be given at Montisi and Castelmuzio on 22 and 24 August.

The fee for attendance at the master class is € 300 for participants and € 100 for auditors.
