The Embassy of Italy in Wellington is very pleased to present a special concert by a duo of Italian musicians performing in public together for the first time.

Luca Manghi and Flavio Villani are now based in New Zealand, where they pay homage to both the Italian and NZ musical traditions.

Italy XX Century:
The Manghi-Villani Duo will perform a programme of twentieth-century Italian works for flute and piano. They will explore the various musical styles of a century of Italian music, with works by Alfredo Casella and Nino Rota, along with the neoclassicism of Giorgio Ferrari, the more contemporary works of Luciano Berio and Salvatore Sciarrino, and a homage to New Zealand musical tradition with a work by Gillian Whitehead.

This programme of solo and chamber music works, prepared especially for this occasion, showcases the perfect synergy between the two instruments, and the talent of the musicians.
