The last few months have taken us through perhaps the full spectrum of states of mind and heart that can be experienced in this world, from helplessness to hope, from sadness to joy, from loneliness to heartfelt enthusiasm for seeing each other again. In this sense, Jakub Kydlíček, a flautist and connoisseur of a wide palette of Italian musical feelings and expressions, and his ensemble Concerto Aventino will make it to the garden of the Troja chateau at the perfect moment. Together, they will present masters especially of the 17th century, and their thoughtfully constructed, onomatopoeic and often playful pieces. Salomone Rossi, Dario Castello, Marco Uccellini and other colleagues of theirs were able to express pain, love, hope, sadness, joy, tenderness, fighting spirit and determination ... The music will sound at times close to, at other times far off. A bird here, an echo there. A violin here, a guitar there. And August all around.
