I HATE MUSIC! Songs, letters, memories. For voice and piano
Teatro Due, Parma, Italy Leonard Bernstein I HATE MUSIC! Songs, letters, memories. For voice and piano starring Joana Estebanell Milian piano Mauro Arbusti directed by Massimiliano Farau produced by Fondazione Teatro Due This project is part of Leonard Bernstein at 100 With more courage and more freedom than his “trailblazer” George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein crossed the borders between classical music and Broadway – borders that were far from smooth, at the beginning of his career. Which composer and musician would an actress-singer want to honour in the 100th year since his birth, if not the author of brilliant musicals like On the town, Wonderful Town and West Side Story, of a operetta like Candide and of fantastic “cultivated” songs for sopranos like I hate Music!, La Bonne Cousine and Two Love Songs? I hate Music! is born like this, as an act of love towards a musical genius and towards the vulcanic, catching, charismatic personality of “Lenny”: a trip through his compositions for sopranos (among which we can find some classics like Somewhere, Tonight and Glitter and be gay) but also through his interviews, his huge correspondence with artists like Aaron Copland, Claudio Abbado, Carlos Kleiber, Stephen Sondheim, Boris Pasternak, Bette Davis… Accompanied by Mauro Arbusti on the piano and by the registered voices of some actors who will read sections of essays and letters, Joana Estebanell Milian will go through the main stages of one of the most brilliant, controversial and multifaceted geniuses of Twentieth Century music.
