Cluster, Lucca’s Association of contemporary music founded in 2009, is presenting its spring season with some great happenings thanks to the Fondazione Banca Del Monte di Lucca. There will be twenty-five events (with forty premières by Cluster members), some of which are connected to exchanges with other countries, exporting the Lucchese musical scene of most of its forty member- composers such as the start to the season at Stuttgart on 29th January. There are exchanges with Germany, USA, Japan and even San Marino. Staying in the international field, there’s the first competition in the music world for writing unconventional scores (true graphic works of art). Entries will be exhibited in the Sala Staffieri of Palazzo Ducale from 26th March to 10th May (see advertising banners on the home page). The presentations of music books (“Cluster Books“) also continue with four appointments at LuccaLibri and the novelty of “Cluster Young” which includes a concert organized and managed by the Cluster group of young composers.
Lastly, there are the close partnerships with the Porcari SPAM, Sinfonia School, Jam School, the FAI and the Lucca Film Festival.
All Cluster events are free admission.
On Sunday, April 17th, at 6 pm, in the Palazzo Ducale’s Sala Ademollo (see photo), in collaboration with the Sinfonia School, there’s a concert with the Sinfonia School’s flute orchestra concluding the ‘Flute Weekend’ at Lucca music school. The program includes many pieces including a world première by Cluster composer Manfred Giampietro.
