As part of the Imago Sloveniae Festival, the Italian Cultural Institute of Ljubljana presents two events dedicated to Italian music and performing arts.

11 August 2021: ‘Comedìa’ by the Chagall Quartet

The show ‘Comedìa’, performed in the Court of the Ljubljana Castle, was conceived as part of the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, with the aim of underlying the passionate relationship between the great poet and music.

The multimedia performance, conceived as an immersive experience, develops around the music performed live by the Chagall Quartet, the reciting voice of Pierluigi Pintar and the projection of scenographic images and elements in digital graphics by Francesco Lopergolo. The reading of a selection of verses taken from Dante’s Inferno is interspersed with musical passages from works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Ligeti and others, as well as improvisations and sound effects.

Founded in 2014, the Chagall Quartet is made up of Matteo Ghione (violin), Paolo Skabar (violin), Jacopo Toso (viola) and Ilsu Güresçi (cello). The young musicians, originally from Italy and Turkey, met at university in Trieste and have extensive and varied experience in chamber music. The quartet’s mission is both to expand their traditional repertoire and to offer their audiences rarely performed compositions and absolute first performances.
