The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Eni unite in celebration of music.
The concert Lost Tango , of which Eni is the unique partner, will take place on Wednesday 14 December 2011, at 9.00 pm, at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.
The singer Ute Lemper , a refined artist of world renown who has also performed in outstanding musicals such as Cats, Peter Pan, Chicago and Cabaret,recounts, or better sings, about her latest passion: Astor Piazzolla .
Lost Tango is a homage to the music of Astor Piazzolla played by the Piazzolla Sextet, a group that is the evolution of the Argentinian maestro's original quintet, enhanced by additional elements. Ute will sing the best-known songs, the masterpieces as well as some recently discovered unpublished works by Astor Piazzolla.
Germany, Ute Lemper has become one of the world's best-known singers.
Actress and dancer, she is also an icon of the stage of our times: contemporary, dramatic, ironic, "an "anti-diva" thanks to her tendency to scandalise and destroy clichés.
She has performed on most of the world's most prestigious stages from the Berliner Ensemble to the Sydney Opera House, and from Barcelona to Berlin, the Barbican in London to the Piccolo Teatro in Milan.
Ute Lemper is now working with the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, one of the world's oldest musical institutions. Officially founded in 1585, this internationally recognised symphonic and concert body brings together an academic group of some 100 members from among the most illustrious exponents of musical culture and one of the world's leading orchestras and choruses. The academy today operates as a music school at the highest level and maintains a rich heritage that derives from its more than 400-year history.
