XIV Edizione Italian Brass Week,Cesena e Bertinoro, press release


ITALIAN BRASS NETWORK and the State Conservatory of Music of Cesena “B. Maderna ”, with the associations, JCE FESTIVAL DI BERTINORO, THE SEVENTH MUSA, invite institutional bodies and the press to the presentation conference of the 13th edition of the ITALIAN BRASS WEEK International Festival (Brass Week). The project, born and conceived by the artistic director Maestro Luca Benucci, with the President Dale Clevenger, assisted this year by the support of the Director of the CONSERVATORY "B. MADERNA ", Maestro Adriano Tumiatti and the President of the Bertinoro JCE Festival Luigi Pretolani, want to remember, this year, the great trumpeter Maurice Andrè, who passed away last February.

Bertinoro and Cesena will be protagonists on the international stage from 29 July to 5 August. In its thirteenth edition, the event that involves young musicians and big names from the most excellent orchestras in the world, will move from Tuscany to Emilia Romagna, with the hope of also giving international visibility to the issues related to the seismic events of recent months.
Music not only as fun, but also as a tool for socialization and communication between different cultures, to involve everyone and leave an indelible trace in the emotional casket of each participant. The event will be a reference point for young people from all over the world and will contribute to the creation of a new model of musical and cultural research that will also allow spectators to get to know a world, that of chamber and symphonic music, under another point of view: that of experimentation and excellence. And this with the contribution of the Venezuelan Youth Symphony Orchestra "Simon Bolivar", which for the occasion will make an excellent contribution by exhibiting both on the stage and on the streets of Bertinoro, the group "Siete Cuartos 7/4", which thanks to Maestro Josè Antonio Abreu and Maestro Tarcisio Barreto, he managed to mix Caribbean rhythms with classical ones, making a symphonic music concert a sort of common dance of solidarity.


Josè Antonio Abreu, creator of the "System", strongly wanted the participation of his children in the Festival, showing the utmost esteem and opening the doors of his cultural laboratory, created in over 30 years of activity in Venezuela, for a collaboration with ITALIAN BRASS NETWORK. A prestigious exchange that will become the first brick for the construction of a common path.


With the students who will participate in the courses, which will be held in the Conservatory of Cesena, and with the great international artists who will also be involved in teaching, street events and days dedicated to music will be created. With Bertinjazz the streets will be seen by the public as a great cultural heritage that the historic center holds and the evening will remain in the heart of each participant because it will be possible to observe with the soul that soundtrack that everyone will be able to remember forever. Artists such as Roger Bobo, Rex Richardson, Ruben Simeo, Roland Szentpali, Luca Benucci, Jeff Nelsen, Stefan de Leval Jezierski, Oystein Baadsvik, Andrea Tofanelli, Davide Simoncini, Gusztav Hona, Ingemar Roos, Andrea Dell'Ira, Giancarlo Parodi, Ruben Simeo , Fabiano Fiorenzani, Athos Castellan, Siete Cuartos Ensemble, will give away their experience and their passion.

The cities will become, in those days, capitals of sound and magical notes that all musicians will use as an international language, they will become bricks of a new, magnificent artistic world, full of ideas and important differences, right in Emilia Romagna, where music accompanies traditionally on summer evenings.

Furthermore, during the week, there will be Masterclasses for music students, with expert teachers, of unexceptionable fame, right at the "Bruno Maderna" State Conservatory of Music in Cesena, which will become not only a simple space to learn, but also a place to live in the summer
For the first time this year, the Junior Brass course will also be held, aimed at all young people in middle and high schools of music. Accompanied by the teachers of the respective schools, the children will have the opportunity to listen to the great "Brass" guests of the Festival.



As always, thanks go to the sponsors who have been supporting the event for years: Conn - Selmer INC - USA ,, Onerati - Florence, Cardocase - Austria, Yamaha - Europe, Besson - France, Melton Meinl Weston - Germany, Adams - Holland, Vincent Bach - USA, Miraphone - Germany


And in particular a thank you goes to the CASSA DI RISPARMIO DI CESENA FOUNDATION, which has always stood out in the promotion of cultural events in an area that has a lot to re-evaluate, also qualitatively in the tourism sector and which has embraced our project by giving the impetus for a future collaboration on common themes: musical passion, artistic passion, revaluation of human heritage and trust in young artists who will be formed on the occasion of the event.
