Innocence – Musical


Oriol Romaní


Approaching innocence through Clara Haskil, Mozart, Victòria dels Àngels, Louis Armstrong and Ethel Waters

Introductory remarks:

Do this musicians have something in common? Through them and their music, we’ll observe different aspects and meanings of innocence. We’ll listen recordings or watch videos by pianist Dinu Lipatti playing Bach, pianist Clara Haskil playing Mozart, Victòria dels Àngels singing a duet in a concert, Louis Armstrong at home improvising a jazz duo with a friend, blues singer and guitarist B.B.King, and jazz and gospel singer Ethel Waters. These extraordinary musicians and their music will carry us somewhere we still don’t know, and hopefully will help us to know something new about innocence.
