La Banda di Puglia


La Banda di Puglia

1h30 without interval


Giacomo Puccini, Giuseppe Verdi, Vincenzo Bellini
Arias from operas
Nino Rota
Selected works

La Dolce Vita, The Godfather… the music from these screen classics is as famous as the films themselves. In France, it is a less well-known fact that their composer, Nino Rota, was particularly partial to the banda, a repertory associated with south-west Italy and its ferias, so much so that he wrote widely in the vein and founded an orchestra: la Banda di Ruvo di Puglia, led today by trumpeter and composer, Pino Minafra, a native of the Puglia region. The programme includes a tribute to Nino Rota, his mentor at the Bari Conservatory, revisiting various works, along with arias from operas by Puccini, Verdi and Bellini.
