Rome, February 22 - The Italian singer-songwriter
known by his stage name Morgan will be paying homage to the
legendary Fabrizio De André in a concert on June 7 as part of
the fifth Festival della Bellezza.
The festival will be held from May 27 to June 10.
The experimental musician and singer, known for his
electronic and alternative music, will be doing a deep dive into
the characters in De André songs.
He will be reviving the themes dear to De Andre, from
spirituality and war to madness and love, in a universe rich in
humanity.
At the Roman amphitheatre in Verona, Morgan will be
showcasing De Andre's three production phases and nod towards
his literary references and musical influences, such as Cecco
Angiolieri, Brassens, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, as well as
his collaboration with Ivano Fossati.
Acoustic guitar will be combined with an electrical piano and
the notes will take on new forms.
The first phase was when De Andre took up old madrigals and
ancient forms, while the second is that of his concept albums,
in which the idea is developed throughout the album and every
piece is unique.
The third phase was his "ethnic" phase, with began with
'L'Indiano' and ended with such masterpieces as 'Creuza de Ma',
'Le Nuvole' and 'Anime Salve'.
As was the case for the remakes of David Bowie's works at the
Festival della Bellezza 2017, Morgan's live performances will be
lessons in theatre in which talent and visionary inspiration
mix.
This year's Festival della Bellezza - I Maestri dello Spirito
will begin on May 27 with a concert by Philip Glass at Teatro
Romano.
The initiative expects to see 50,000 attend, with sold-out
theatres and unique shows under the artistic direction of Alcide
Marchioro.
