In September, the Museo Novecento returns to host Firenze Suona Contemporanea with three events that are part of the rich program of the festival, spread across various Florentine venues. The final evening will also be held at the museum: a Fluxus-style music and performance marathon.

On 11 September at 9.00 pm the cellist Francesco Dillon will present a program of music for cello and electronics in the context of an exploratory investigation between Asia and the West that characterizes the entire edition of Firenze Suona Contemporanea this year and which was anticipated in July by the concerts of Claudio Jacomucci and Emanuele Torquati. Dillon offers a concert with pieces by young Japanese composers, such as Noriko Koide, Eiko Ishibashi and Kenji Sakai, and by the now well-known Toshio Hosokawa and Salvatore Sciarrino.

On September 20, again at 9.30 pm, the museum will host the last solo appointment of the festival, entrusted to the historic flute of Roberto Fabbriciani who will interpret, through the works of some of the greatest composers of the last century, including Giacinto Scelsi, Kazuo Fukushima, Luciano Berio, Toru Takemitsu, Salvatore Sciarrino and Aldo Clementi, an unmissable tribute to “modernism” in music.

On September 27, from 6 to 10 pm, the musicians of the FLAME ENSEMBLE, together with the pianist Vincenzo Pasquariello and actors, performers, musicians and other guests, will create a real tribute to FLUXUS, presenting various installations, performances, music and poems in the evening FLASH FLUXUS. In particular, the Sonatas & Interludes for piano by John Cage, but also Cut Piece by Yōko Ono, or the enigmatic poem by George Brecht will be proposed. If on the one hand the performers will be engaged in a continuous four-hour performance, on the other hand the audience will be able to ‘rebel’ against their role as passive listener. In fact, in Fluxus’ intentions, the public is invited to actively participate, free to move in the spaces, between the performers and their often unpredictable actions.
