In a fitting tribute to the 332nd anniversary of Giuseppe Tartini’s birth, a special concert is set to take place on Monday, April 8th, at 7 pm in the enchanting Church of San Silvestro in Trieste. This event marks the commencement of the Interreg project Tartini bis, a collaborative effort between cross-border institutions aimed at enriching cultural tourism through the prism of Giuseppe Tartini’s legacy.

The concert, titled “Happy Birthday, Giuseppe Tartini!”, pays homage to the renowned composer and violinist with a meticulously curated program featuring his masterpieces. From the Triosonata in C Major to the rarely performed vocal compositions such as the Stabat Mater and the Salve Regina, the evening promises an immersive journey into Tartini’s musical genius.

Leading the project is the Tartini Conservatory of Trieste, in partnership with the Municipality of Piran, the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory of Venice, and the Luigi Bon Foundation. Slovenian collaborators include the Italian Union and the Zeleni Kras Regional Development Agency of Pivka.

The broader agenda of tARTINI bis, spanning 18 months, seeks to enhance the cross-border appreciation of the classical musical heritage of the Adriatic region. This initiative builds upon the success of the previous INTERREG project, tARTINI, which commemorated the 250th anniversary of Tartini’s passing.

In addition to the concert, two workshops are scheduled to take place on April 8th and 9th at the Tartini Conservatory in Trieste and the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice. These workshops aim to explore new avenues for Tartini research, including digitization of archival sources and cataloging of his works.

The celebration extends beyond the concert hall, with delegations of students, teachers, and musicologists from both conservatories engaging in exchanges and site visits in Trieste and Venice. These activities underscore the enduring relevance of Tartini’s legacy in shaping cultural discourse across borders.

For aficionados of classical music and enthusiasts of Tartini’s oeuvre, the concert and accompanying workshops offer a unique opportunity to delve into the life and work of one of the most celebrated figures in music history.
