THE COLOR OF HARMONICS – Santo Albertini, Edoardo Bruni

Date / Day: 27/04/2018
Time / Time: 15:30

Location: Villa Carlotta

It is now very rare to listen to the harmonica in concert. The potential of this instrument is enormous and perhaps greater than many other wind instruments: just to mention some of its characteristics, just remember that the extension exceeds four octaves, the sound is produced both by exhaling and breathing, you can perform double notes and chords, there are different types of vibrato and numerous particular timbric effects (glissando, mandolin, trill with register …). The harmonica originates from a very ancient instrument dating back to more than 3000 years ago, which was played and played again in the Far East: the organ with an oriental mouth. The western-mouthed organ, or harmonic, appears only at the beginning of the nineteenth century and began to spread throughout the world at the end of the same century.
