Maggio Diffuso”: four concerts in four beautiful places in Tuscany

The first violin of the Maggio Domenico Pierini and the Orchestra of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino engaged in a series of four concerts in four art venues in the Metropolitan City of Florence. 

The program includes the Symphony “Al Santo Sepolcro” and “The Four Seasons” by Antonio Vivaldi. 

Free entrance until all available places are taken

Florence, May 10th 2024 – The events as part of the 86th Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Festival continue. From May 10th to May 17th 2024, four historic churches of the Metropolitan City of Florence will host the Orchestra del Maggio and its concertmaster Domenico Pierini in the four events scheduled for the Maggio DiffusoThursday May 10th at the Sanctuary of Santa Verdiana in Castelfiorentino; on May 15th at the Parish Church of San Pietro in Cascia di Reggello; on May 16th at the Church of Santa Lucia al Borghetto and on May 17th at the Parish Church of San Lorenzo in Borgo San Lorenzo.

All four concerts are scheduled at 9pm and feature a program entirely dedicated to the compositions of Antonio Vivaldi: opening with the Symphony in B minor for strings and continuous bass Al Santo Sepolcro, followed by the famous Four Seasons.

Speaking about these four interesting symphony concerts, Domenico Pierini said he was happy to be able to contribute to a real 'dissemination' of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino: "I am really enthusiastic about taking part in this beautiful initiative and thus bringing great music also throughout the metropolitan area of Florence. The places chosen are four historic churches of great beauty which will therefore host the music of Antonio Vivaldi; with the Four Seasons, which this year blow out the beauty of 299 candles and which are undoubtedly one of the reference compositions of the concert repertoire and, to introduce, the Sinfonia for strings Al Santo Sepolcro, a very evocative Vivaldi piece which goes to perfectly and further frame the finale of the concert of The Four Seasons
