DUO BALDO, WHEN MUSIC AND FUN HAVE A PARTY…


The musical comedy team DUO BALDO is renowned violinist Brad Repp and pianist/actor Aldo Gentileschi. Their critically acclaimed performances combine virtuosic performances, theatrical humor, and pop culture.
Duo Baldo made their debut with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli in 2004.  In February 2006, Duo Baldo won first prize at the National Short Theater Competition in Florence. After winning first prize at the 2009 Musicomicontest, they performed at the opening of the 2010 Salzburg Festival.  Other engagements include the Chamber Music Society of Trieste, as well as appearances in many US cities including Cincinnati, Baltimore, El Paso, and internationally in Milan, Lucca, Lugano (Switzerland), Dubai (UAE), Mexico City, Paunat (France) and tours of China, Taiwan and Japan. Violinist Brad Repp has appeared as violin soloist with José Carreras.  He performs on a 1736 Testore violin.  Aldo Gentileschi performs on whatever piano he can find.After having sold out in Tokyo, Salzburg, Mexico City and Washington, CONdivertimentoCERTO finally returns to Milan to open the Harmonies and Sounds of the Spazio Teatro No’hma exhibition.
Aldo Gentileschi (pianist) and Brad Repp (violinist), “play” with music, humorously interpreting many classic songs from the most famous repertoire.They know how to  add theatrical comedy to the most splendid melodies.
What a repertoire!
From Mozart , to Debussy, to Gershiwn to a funny Per Elisa, to Paganini and John Cage. The violinist Maestro Repp and his ‘victim’ Aldo build an irresistible show that offers a different way of approaching the world of classical music. Jokes, tics, musical provocations become the fabric of the show in which music is combined with fun.
Let’s have them play & party!

MILAN, ITALY. ‘IL DONO’: A GREAT FREE GIFT FOR THE CITY

I saw Voca’s show a while ago at Off-Broadway New World Stages in New York.
It was amazingI I looooved it! The group will be performing one night only at the former railway station of Porta Romana, owned by FS Sistemi Urbani (Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group), an unusual venue that will become the stage where Voca People, an internationally renowned Israeli company, will perform on a very special night December 19th. 2019
Voca are eight aliens from the planet Voca, where they communicate through music and vocal expressions. Using only a cappella singing and beat box (which consists of playing percussion as drums and cymbals through the voice)No instruments, no sound effects, It will be a show beyond every boundary and barrier, a kind of a ” theater outside the theater” that it will create an intergalactic musical explosion from the planet Voca, located somewhere behind the sun. Using no instruments, only vocals, they create an alien, innovative sound that’s music to your ears.
What a repertoire! Hits from the ’70s to Mozart to Michael Jackson to ABBA…and those ‘greatest hits’ from any kinda of music, or armonia as the aliens would say….spanning from
Opera, to Bee Gess, to Disco music, to Queen, to classical to the greatest movie soundtracks to literally dozen and dozen of popular tunes.

“‘Il Dono’(The Gift ), says Teatro No’hma’s President Livia Pomodoro, is a special initiative that aims to different theatrical ​​experiences with the public as a journey from the stage to the beating heart of the city, this year our ‘dono’ will be the amazingly talented Voca People. INFO
