The Sound of Nostalgia

From Romance Languages and Literatures Department:

Nostalgia could be said to be the insuppressible desire to stay in contact with one’s homeland: the need to maintain one’s identity and memories, while avoiding the transformation that every journey inevitably presents. In this sense, music can represent a very important link to the past. The concert will explore the emotive side of the emigration experience through the performance of pieces associated with immigration to the Americas, and through the narration of texts by the great, 20th-century Italian author Cesare Pavese among others.

Piano: David Revuelta
Music by Martín y Soler, Lovreglio, De Lorenzo, Casella, Rota and Piazzolla
