A piano journey on the Danube,
with GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

I seldom report on the concerts offered by the Istituzione Universitaria dei Concerti (IUC) operating within the major state university of Rome (Università La Sapienza) since 1945. Its season has thirty-two concerts (mostly chamber music but also jazz and live electronics) in the main University Hall; prices are kept quite low (the top seats in the full subscription series cost 355 euros for the thirty-two concerts, but students can buy seats at 5 euros for each individual concert or have a special full subscription for 250 euros). The quality is quite good; performers who started their career at the IUC, such as the internationally known ensemble I Solisti Veneti, offer a concert at no cost to the institution every 'season'.

I am quite interested in Central European music...
