Abbassa la tua radio per favore. Musica e parole alla vigilia della II Guerra Mondiale

79° Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Intorno al Festival.

Tenor: Leonardo De Lisi. Piano: Leonardo Previero. Rosa Sarti: reciting voice.

The title of the concert recalls a famous song by Alfredo Bracchi and Giovanni D’Anzi, Silenzioso Slow, led to success by Norma Bruni and Alberto Rabagliati. Those were the years right before Italy went to war, the years the radio had become a part of the daily life of the small bourgeoisie, developing an interesting current of cabaret songs. Some of the greatest successes of the time will be played together with the rhetorical songs of Fascist propaganda and scraps of historical documents to bring back to life one of the most dramatic moments of Italian history.

Program

Music by Cesare Andrea Bixio, E. A. Mario, Ettore Petrolini, Eldo Di Lazzaro, Ernesto De Curtis, Odoardo Spadaro, Carlo Innocenzi, Luigi Astore, Giovanni D’Anzi, Gorni Kramer.

Admittance with the ticket of the museum.
